2018 Open Water Swim Sessions

2018 Open Water Swim Sessions

BAD Tri's open water swim sessions at Henleaze lake will be starting on May 6th. Sessions will run on Sunday morning from 9:30-11:00 until the final session on September 9th. The only exception is the weekend of the long training day. You can book into a session on the bookings page and you're free to use the lake as much as you want during the hour and a half we have use of it.

The long training day will be held on Saturday, 26th May and for that weekend only we'll also hold our open water session on the Saturday. You're welcome to book in for just a swim, but why not add a bike and run to it and book for the long training day for the same price. There will be no swim on Sunday, 27th May.

Alongside the regular swim and the long training day we will be running 4 coached sessions aimed at beginners and those looking to brush up their skills. These sessions will be held on May 26th, June 10th, June 17th and July 15th.

Perhaps most importantly we need volunteers to run these sessions. The Lake committee requires us to provide at least one non-swimmer each week to take the register and check that everyone leaves at the end. Without these volunteers none of the sessions would happen.

We try to put two people on each session (and then you can both have a swim too if you fancy!). We should need you for no more than a couple of sessions a season per volunteer. Really no hardship, when you can swim too IF we get enough volunteers.

If you'd like to help supervise a swim session, submit your name and select available dates on this Doodle poll.

If you'd like to help supervise the long training day, submit your name and selecting an available time slot on this Doodle poll.

Alternatively, you can offer up your time by contacting coaching through the website. All help is gratefully received.
