These sessions are different to many other open water coaching lessons as the teacher pupil ratio is just 1:6. and we will be instructing you in the water from a kayak. There is also an opportunity to learn the theory side of good open water swimming in the comfort of a warm meeting room before heading off to the lake to practice what you have learnt.
The 2nd theory session back in the meeting room will give you an opportunity to see your swimming video from the morning session and then we will discuss more advanced open water skills, then we head back to the lake for more practice. The 2nd video will be reviewed by the coaches after the session and will be sent to you to view and keep in the following week.
