Swim Coaching at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre
We are delighted to be running our open water swim coaching at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre. With a second to none safety track record, our open water swim coaching sessions couldn’t feel safer. Each session has a Watersports Centre staff member on site specifically for any emergency situations. Our coaches have two-way radios so that they can be in immediate contact. In addition, our instructors coach from both the pontoon and their kayaks, enabling the coaches to be safe too. Our coaches hold an open water swim coaching certificate and are also BCU Kayak Level 2 qualified.
2020 open water swim coaching season
We are busy planning away for our 2020 open water swim coaching season. In addition to two weekday early morning sessions, we hope to run an evening and Saturday morning session. In 2018 and 2019 we ran the Canary Wharf 1-Mile Swim event and we are currently confirming the date for the 2020 event. We also hope to run a longer, potentially more challenging swimming event in addition to this.
Modules 1A to 4A are designed for swimmers who can swim at least 50 meters without stopping but have no previous experience in open water. We call this our pool-to-dock programme, which is basically open water swim coaching for beginners. It is highly recommended to attend all four of these initial sessions to gain a good foundation in open water swimming. If you do have previous experience we will see you in Module B!
Modules 1B to 10B are for adults who already have open water swimming experience. Many clients join us as we provide open water swim coaching for swimmers and triathletes looking to gain the competitive edge. Each module is a stand alone 1 hour session. Pick and choose the modules you would like to attend. Sessions 1B-6B have an individual focus on a specific element of stroke technique as well as stamina building longer swim sets.
Prices: 1 hour sessions are priced at £30.00, 5 x one hour package is £125.00. Group sessions have a maximum of 6 swimmers per coach.
