Our fully qualified British Triathlon Open Water Coach will take participants through a guided introduction to open water, outlining essential information, sharing top tips, and teaching core skills.

Pond to Pool is a 4-week course beginning with 2 weeks at Barry Road Pool, Northampton on Monday 9th May & 16th May at 7:30 pm until 8:30 pm. Followed by 2 weeks at Sywell Country Park Reservoir on 21st May and 28th May (time to be confirmed).

To take part, you must be over 18 and be able to swim and confidently in deep water. We will take you through the open water technique & drills like how to swim straight, swimming near other swimmers and lots of other top tips. Additionally, we'll advise you on suitable wetsuits and other equipment you may need.

The course costs £50, this includes all swim & coach fees but not parking at Sywell Country Park.
