In preparation for the triathlon season, Triathlon Ready is hosting several open water swim clinics, allowing you to be ready to race! Learn how to swim in a lake for a race or for fun! This class is a must for preparing for the swim portion of a triathlon or for an open water swim of any type.
There is more to swimming than just doing lap after lap, turning when you reach the wall at the end of the pool. You can swim in places with no walls – open water. Lakes, oceans, rivers offer a great change of scenery.

This clinic is perfect for the beginner to the more intermediate swimmers. You must be able to swim 200 yards to take the clinic. Prior to class and entering the water, waiver will need to sign by each athlete. There will also be a sign in and sign out sheet after each instructed clinic. Course will be set up with buoys to practice. Please bring your goggles, swim cap and towel.
