Difficulty level:

This course is for women aged 18+ who are complete beginners to open water and making the transition out of the pool, as well as outdoor swimmers who are looking for a confidence-builder.

The course will cover all of the key safety aspects of open water swimming as well as advice on kit options (wetsuits, goggles etc).  This element of the course is delivered online via Zoom.

You will then put the theory into practice during an open water swimming session of up to 40 mins (time in the water depends on the water temperature).  This session is delivered at the Liverpool Watersports Centre. We will cover how to deal with any swimming anxiety, how to breathe in the water and some elements of swimming technique.  Mostly, you will be focusing on enjoying yourself!

To ensure that you get the most out of this course and to add to your enjoyment of it, you will need to ensure that you can swim continuously for at least 4 lengths of a 25m swimming pool.  This requirement is in place to ensure your safety and manage expectations of the course.

Maximum of 6 in a group.

Venue:  Liverpool Watersports Centre.

Courses will recommence in May 2022.
