The Saltdean Lido to Sea Swimming lessons are a set of 5 sessions that will focus on providing you with a confidence and technique foundation to enhance your sea swimming and enable you to swim safely.
They will be on Wednesdays 4-4.30pm and 4.30-5pm (not ideal but with pools at a premium and Covid making it even harder it's the best we could do!)
This is a course of 4 x 30 minute sessions and 1 x 60 minute session aimed at swimmers who would like to transition from head up breast stroke to front crawl sea swimming. This course is only suitable for swimmers that can swim 200m breast stroke without stopping (8 length standard pool)
The course will consist of 4 x lessons in the heated lido with a final fifth session in the sea. The final session in the sea will be 60mins to put your learning's into practise at a beach and time/date that the group of participants and coaches decide on during the course.
All of our sessions and lessons are led by qualified and insured Open Water Swimming Coaches who have a wealth of experience and a passion for making swimming in the sea accessible to all. Both coaches are Saltdean born and bred and learnt to swim themselves in the lido!
The First Course will start on June 23rd and the second course will start of July 21st. There will be no more than 6 swimmers in the each group and up to two Outdoor Swimming Coaches per group.
