Swim Training Venues
During the winter months, our swim training heads indoors. It takes place at St Christopher’s School, Letchworth on Friday evenings. The sessions can be busy and places need to be booked in advance through the membership secretary.
The pools sessions do have a certain minimum swim standard that people need. They should be able to swim 200m of front crawl non-stop. It is not a question of speed, but more to be able to keep going with front crawl.
We have contacts for 1-2-1 swim coaching for people who are not currently at this standard. Details are available from our membership secretary James Knight.
In the summer we normally have a weekly swim session at Letchworth Outdoor Pool.
Open Water Swim Training:
Throughout the summer we arrange plenty of early morning open water swim training sessions at a local venue. These are for club members only and also membership of the British Triathlon Federation is required. Participants need to be able to swim 800m front crawl non-stop. We can advise on wetsuits and technique. Current sessions are advertised on the club forum.
