WINTER SWIMMING WORKSHOP
With winter fast approaching we have this introduction to winter swimming for dippers to attend.
When our amazing but dramatic lake starts to drop in temp its always good to make sure you have the right head on your shoulders and the correct gear in your bag.
Swimming into the winter is exciting and its buzzing
but not forgetting it is actually still an extreme activity & needs extreme care and attention.
Our COLD CONDITIONING session is a friendly, informative lesson with support of a professional coach highly experienced in the icy temps (Fenwick Ridley).
Teaching you everything there needs to get you starting in winter swimming from gear pre to the physical changes and reactions but the understanding of how to manage these changes safely.
There is a lot packed into this session so it is advisable to bring a pad and pen to note down.
On entering the winter temps and starting this journey with us on the CC you will receive continual support advice throughout the winter and echo the teachings from this lesson to make sure you're still on the correct path, so purchasing this session is supporting you for the whole winter.
Due to Covid we have had to change the way we deliver this lesson and are limited to certain numbers for safety and control & this will also be delivered outside at the venue Sweethope Lough with shelter during dryside or at a local venue for the dryside part.
