JUNIOR OPEN WATER SWIMMING INDUCTION COURSE



 
THE SHACs JUNIOR OPEN WATER SWIMMING COURSE FOR 10-16YR OLDS
TUESDAY 16TH AND 23RD JULY 6.30PM - 8PM - £60.00 PER PERSON INC VAT.



HERE AT THE SHAC WE STRONGLY BELIEVE IN SAFETY FIRST WHEN IT COMES TO ALL OUR ACTIVITIES AND THE FIRST PART OF THAT IS KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE ENVIRONMENTS WE PUT OURSELVES IN. OUR STA QUALIFIED OPEN WATER SPECIFIC SWIM COACHES ARE HERE TO HELP
IN MANY CASES OUR CHILDREN ARE BETTER SWIMMERS THAN US AND WE THEREFORE WOULD LIKE THEM TO JOIN US DURING OPEN WATER SWIM SESSIONS HOWEVER THEY MAY ALREADY BE STRONG SWIMMERS BUT HAVE A LACK OF UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SWIMMING IN A POOL AND SWIMMING IN A LAKE OR OTHER OPEN WATER LOCATIONS.
 
THE SHAC HAVE SPECIFICALLY DEVELOPED THE JUNIOR OWS COURSE TO GIVE JUNIOR SWIMMERS THE KNOWLEDGE AND AWARENESS OF THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN POOL SWIMMING AND OPEN WATER SWIMMING. 
THIS IS NOT ONLY A SWIMMING COURSE BUT A LIFE SKILL THAT WE HOPE WILL BE PASSED TO OTHER YOUNG PEOPLE TO HELP RAISE THE AWARENESS OF THE DANGERS OF COLD AND DEEP WATER SWIMMING AND HOW BEST TO MANAGE THOSE DANGERS.

THE COURSE IS ALSO SUITABLE FOR JUNIORS LOOKING TO ENTER AN OPEN WATER SWIM EVENT OR TRIATHLON.
THIS COURSE IS A PRE-REQUISITE FOR ANY JUNIOR SWIMMER FROM THE AGE OF 10-16 TO BE ABLE TO SWIM AT THE LAGOON IN OUR OPEN WATER SWIM SESSIONS. 
EACH ATTENDEE MUST PASS THE COURSE IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO ATTEND OPEN SESSIONS AND WE WITHHOLD THE RIGHT TO FAIL SWIMMERS IF WE CONCLUDE THEY ARE NOT READY TO ATTEND OPEN SESSIONS.
 ALL ATTENDEES MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM A MINIMUM OF 600M COMFORTABLY AND HAVE A WETSUIT AVAILABLE FOR THE COURSE. WE CAN SUPPLY WET SUITS VIA OUR PARTNERS AT ZONE3 - PLEASE CONTACT US FOR DETAILS

1:1 and PRIVATE GROUP SESSIONS ARE AVAILABLE FOR JUNIOR SWIMMERS AND ADULTS THAT WANT TO IMPROVE THEIR TECHNIQUE AND STAMINA IF REQUIRED. WE ALSO HAVE COACHING OPTIONS FOR THOSE JUNIORS LOOKING TO COMPETE IN OPEN WATER SWIM EVENTS AND TRIATHLONS. PLEASE EMAIL INFO@THESHAC.CO.UK FOR MORE DETAILS.
