Training Camps Offered: Vmps Open Water Swim Clinic

The Vmps Open Water Swim Clinic is designed to help swimmers of all levels become more confident and effective during the swim segment of a triathlon. Participants spend the majority of the clinic in the lake practicing the skills needed in open water swimming. Fearful beginners work on learning how to relax and breathe while swimming in a lake. Intermediate and advanced swimmers work on skills like sighting and drafting which will help them to navigate the swim course in a triathlon more quickly. All this is done under the watchful eyes of experienced coaches and life guards.

After a warm up swim, the coaches divide the class into smaller groups based on ability. They cover most of the topics in the small group format while swimming in the lake, and then reconvene into a larger group to practice triathlon swim starts, swimming in a crowd, and drafting.

Topics Covered

Triathlon swim starts
Dealing with anxiety during the swim
Bilateral breathing
Swimming straight in the open water
Swimming with a crowd
Turning at buoys
Exiting the waterPlease describe any training camps your put on.

Vmps Open Water Training Swims

Looking for a fun way to improve your open water swimming? Or do you already thrive during the open water swim part of triathlons? Either way don’t miss the Vmps Open Water Training Swims. Try one of these practice swims to test your swim fitness and build your confidence before your most important triathlons. Do all three sessions in a series to monitor your progress. (You can’t do that by looking at your swim splits in triathlons).

Really nervous about open water swimming? We totally get it, so we do our best to ease your fears. Life guards in kayaks monitor the swim course, and a coach swims with the last swimmers.
