Description

The East Midlands Regional committee are hosting an open water taster session for juniors ages 8 - 16 who are new to open water swimming or have yet to swim in open water. It is also a good opportunity to experience open water pre the East Midlands Junior Race Series.

How to enter the water safely

Getting used to the water temperature and water in a lake

How to exit the water safely

The sessions are led by a fully qualified British Triathlon L3 and regional coach Hilary Johnson and full safety cover is provided as part of the sessions via Spring Lakes.

The session starts at 5.30pm.

There will be a selection of wetsuits available to use and there is also the option to hire direct from Spring Lakes at a cost of £4.

Towbuoys are compulsory at the lake and available to hire direct from Spring Lakes at a cost of £2.
