Open Water Coaching Sessions
Coached sessions held by fully qualified NOWCA (National Open Water Coaches Association) coaches with safety crew qualified in the RLSS National Water Safety Management Programme.
There will be Open Water Swimming Coaching qualified coaches at all sessions to provide instruction for swimmers. There will also be safety RLSS qualified crew both on the water and on land. Vigour Events takes swimmers safety very seriously and has a Defibulator at all sessions.
On arrival all swimmers are registered using the National Open Water Coaches Association (NOWCA) swimmer management system. This allows us to ensure all swimmers follow the NOWCA Swimmers Code of Conduct and collate all essential contact and medical information. This then allows us track who is in the water and when swimmers exit the water. A full safety brief for swimmers is conducted at every session highlighting courses, hazards to look out for, notification processes.
The courses will be clearly marked out using buoys with guidance of which course is appropriate for swimmers ability.
Swimmers are welcome to swim without a wetsuit when it is appropriate (temperature dependant), if you do not have a wetsuit you can hire one for just £10.00 per session.
