Service Description

The priority with introducing children swimmers (6-9 years) to the open water is making sure they have fun!!! If they enjoy the open water, they will want to come back to do it again. The sessions will include structured games for acclimatisation and feeling comfortable in the water. Swimming with a wetsuit and a tow float is a totally different experience from pool swimming in just a swim costume. It’s a massive experience for the little ones to embrace the joys of the open water so I like one parent to be in the water with the children until they are happy to be left on their own. We will then progress on to learning the 3 strokes as well as the open water techniques. We swim hard and then it’s jumping in time which is usually the highlight of the session. The open water can be quite scary for children so they will be briefed on the deck about what to expect and any concerns or questions will be answered. A level 1 Swim England teacher will be assisting. Kit: Goggles that do not leak Bright coloured swim cap Wetsuit - surf wetsuits are fine Swim Towel Warm clothes for afterwards Dry bag for the wet wetsuit Snacks go down well after a swim Lake entry of ££ (to be confirmed) is included in the price. Open water adventures are waiting for you!!!
