Once again in 2020 BarryS Coaching TriMasters Swimming is proud offer our Wednesday 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. Weekly Open Water Swim Program.
For 2020 we will offer 2 TWO sessions, each lasting 5 weeks. Open Water Swim Sessions - Session I (Named "Beginner, Sprint & Olympic") will have an "open water skill development and technique" focus. Session I will begin May 6 (wetsuit likely required) and run 5 consecutive weeks ending June 3. Session I will have 1 rain-out make-up date of June 10.; Session II (Named "70.3 & IRONMAN") will focus on "open water swim skill development along with swim endurance fitness in anticipation of race swim distances from 0.93 to 2.4 miles" Session II will focus on longer swim sets and honing open water swim skills. For 2020 you will be able to register for Session I or Session II as well as both (registering for both affords the registrant a discount. Dividing the 2020 OWS Season into 2 distinct Sessions and having a "Race Specific Focus" for each will allow for increased OWS fitness and more refined OWS Skill development.
For many years we have successfully moved beginner Open Water Swim athletes to ACCOMPLISHED Open Water Swimmers at the end of our seasonal program. Our weekly swims are designed to build confidence in each swimmer’s skill set in a unique open water swim environment. Each swim offers safety and security first, open water swim skill development second and open water swim fitness third. We teach folks efficient sighting skills, buoy turn skills, various drafting techniques along with drafting evasion skills (allowing our athlete to break away from those drafting), open water breathing patterns and techniques and "bail-out" skills and techniques. Our program is designed to instill a sense of confidence and provide the necessary skill development to navigate mass open water swim starts,
For safety, we have Kayak(s) and many times paddleboarders on the course, in water swim patrol, on land lifeguards and EVERY PARTICIPANT IS EXPECTED to purchase an XTERRA (or other) tethered safety buoy AND WEAR IT AT ALL TIMES WHEN SWIMMING INSIDE OUR PROGRAM.
