Service Description

What are we doing? Our session will last for up to 75 minutes. We will start out with some land side exercises and familiarisation of your equipment. Then we will begin with a nice warm up in which we will swim to the halfway point of the swim course. This will give you a chance to both adapt to the open water environment, and at the same time, whilst underway, enable the coaches to observe the various levels at which you are as swimmers. Then we will introduce you to various swim drills to help you become more  competent  open water swimmers. Finally, we will work on some fun yet challenging skills specific to the open water. What are my transport/parking options getting to the session? Parking available – follow the ATW signs all the way to the end carpark Location and Directions: Merchant Taylors' School Sandy Lodge, Moor Park, Northwood HA6 2HT   What should I bring to the session? * Your wetsuit – required for the session (we will be in and out of the water for close to an hour).
