Join our open water training sessions for fitness, for a triathlon, an open water swim, or any other competition.  No prior OW experience is necessary, but swimmers must be confident in their ability to swim a 200-300 meter course without assistance.  All swimmers must wear a bright colored swim cap or a New Wave Swim Buoy.  NWSB is mandatory for anyone who has never completed a 300 yard open water loop without stopping.  We generally have buoys available for sale on site.

Multiple sessions are held each week.  Our current schedule is as follows:

  • Tuesday/Thursday 5-7PM.
  • Saturday 10AM- Noon (April and October) ***For April and October sessions, we must confirm at least 8 swimmers to hold each session***
    • 8AM-Noon (May 4 - Sep 28). 
  • Sunday 10AM-Noon (May 5 - Sep 22)

Practice times may vary on holidays, due to weather conditions, etc.  Check out the most accurate water conditions at this location here. Sessions are also subject to cancellation or change due to weather (lightning, water quality, etc.).  For the most up to date information on class schedules, join our Facebook Group
