Swimming for Beginners

A number of triathletes begin with a lack of confidence or skills in freestyle (me included) and have trouble making that first step up into the coached swim sessions.

Coaches are happy to help where they can, but they aren't instructors specialising in teaching freestyle technique from scratch and it's further complicated by trying to lead multiple lanes at once.

Our proposed solution is to offer, in the Autumn, 6 weeks of structured lessons, aimed at the same squad of swimmers, where you can develop your skills and confidence together. The exact details and costs will follow, and we're not asking for a 100% commitment at this point, but it would be helpful to gauge interest.

Current expectation is running September-October, 4-5pm on a Sunday at King Edwards Camp Hill in Kings Heath, price around £60 for the course (6x1 hour lessons).

If you're interested please sign up on the club forum under the Training > Swim section. If there is enough interest we'll firm up dates and costs.
