Open Water Swimming

on Sunday, 10 February 2013.

It is hoped that more swimmers will race in competitive events in the official Scottish Swimming Open Water programme

 Open Water Swimming

The profile of Open Water Swimming was given a bit of a boost in 2012 with the Olympic Swimming Marathon - a 10 km event held in the second week of the Olympics. At the other end of the spectrum, thousands of swimmers are likely to compete in the mass participation events across Scotland again this summer.

Between these two levels it is hoped that more swimmers will race in competitive events in the official Scottish Swimming Open Water programme. There is often a perception that open water swimmers can only come from clubs who have some form of organised open water section.  This isn’t actually the case and swimmers following a conventional training programme which caters for endurance events in the pool are effectively already training for open water events.
 
Scottish Swimming are holding two information and training days at the National Swimming Academy on the 2nd March and 4th May for swimmers, coaches, club officials and parents who are interested in learning more about this branch of the sport.  See the attached flier for more details.

Whilst the 2nd March date does clash with other competitions  those who can’t manage then will be able to attend on the 4th May.
