We are delighted to announce our STA winter swimming safety and foundation course delivered in partnership with the STA and SwimyourSwim on Sunday 3rd Nov 2019.


The course has been created to develop the knowledge of those wishing to swim and assist individuals swimming over winter 
in cold water (ideally, but not limited to, water temperatures of 12ÂșC or less ).

The attendees will be involved in all aspects of winter swimming, ice mile or qualifier attempts, from the swimmers briefing, 
pre swim preparation and data recording to stroke rate monitoring and post swim recovery.

The course will include a combination of classroom and practical in water training.

There will be a debrief at the end of the morning and the course attendees will be awarded with an STA certificate 
and one CPD point on completion.

Team SHAC strongly recommend that any of our swimmers looking to swim further into the winter season participate in this course, 
the more we can be aware of the dangers, our personal limits and other swimmers around us in order to recognise issues and react 
to them quickly and correctly the better and safer for us all. 

We are extremely fortunate that Leon Fryer from SwimYourSwim and STA Tutor is available as the lead coach on this course, 
Leon is a successful ice mile swimmer and has coached numerous others through the process. This is a course not to be missed.

We have a one off special price for the course of £49.99 including VAT. if you need to hire a wetsuit on the day please let us know 
your approximate size as limited suits are available. wetsuit hire is £10.00 per suit payable on the day.
