Course Information


British Triathlon are looking for some triathletes and open water swimmers to come along to be coached in the open water for just £5! 

A number of British Triathlon coaches will be attending an open water coaching workshop to develop their open water coaching skills. An integral part of the workshop is the applied practical experience the coaches will get from coaching a session with a group of swimmers. This means we need you to come and swim!

  • Date: 8th August 2020
  • Location: Mallory Park, Church Road, Kirby Mallory, Leicestershire, LE9 7QE
  • Time: 1.45pm-4.30pm
  • Kit Required: Wetsuit, Goggles, Swim Hat, Towel, Warm/Dry Clothing

Open to all members and non-members aged 16 and above, the session will include various open water skills such as sighting, drafting, turns and mass starts. The length of the time in the water will depend on a number of factors including weather on the day and number of swimmers in each group. After the session you will be given the opportunity to provide feedback to the coaches you worked with as part of their development. Changing facilities and refreshments available on site.

The Important Bit

This session is only appropriate for people who have had experience of swimming in open water environments. It will not be suitable for thsoe who have never swum in open water before. As a guide, we recommend that you are able to comfortably swimm 200m in open water without pause. All swimmers will nneed to sign a Participant Disclaimer and Health Information form. This will be sent out prior to the workshop.
