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.

Due to Covid-19 the changing rooms and showers may or may not be available, depending on Government regulations at the time. If they are unavailable changing is outside but in 2020 toilets were available during Covid times.

Turner Swim’s Group Open Water Swim Coaching Modules

Modules 1A to 5A are designed for swimmers who can swim at least 50 meters front crawl 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 five 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 5B are for adults who already have regular open water swimming experience. Most participants are training for a triathlon and are keen to improve with a competitive edge. Each module is a stand alone 1 hour session, so you can pick and choose modules. Sessions 1B-5B consist of stroke technique, open water specific aspects such as drafting and stamina building too.

Coaching Ratios:  Group sessions have a maximum of 6 swimmers per coach. We reserve the right to postpone a session if we have only 3 participants or less per coach. 48 hour cancellation policy.
