BEGINNERS AND IMPROVERS

BEGINNERS & IMPROVERS

Our Beginners and Improvers weeks offer a gentle, safe introduction to open water swimming. They will help you grow in confidence and develop the skills you need to swim safely – and most of all, to enjoy yourself whilst swimming! You will leave with a much better knowledge of how to swim efficiently and effectively in open water, and how to progress your swimming moving forward.
