WhenSaturday 7:30am
May to July

Learn the basics of open water swimming from our experienced coaches, train with other people who have exactly the same worries and concerns as you do. Whether it is your first time in a wetsuit, your first time in open water, or you want to learn how to swim front crawl, we can offer you any advice you need, answer any questions you have, demonstrate and explain anything you want to make your fears and worries go away.

For more experienced swimmers we do offer a second group at every session that provides a coached swim session working on technique and fitness to help improve your speed in the water and get you out of the water faster.

Please note, there are no rental wetsuits available at our Stoke Newington sessions.

The open water sessions at Stoke Newington will take place EVERY Saturday morning from 07:30am to 8:30am through the summer months.

All of the sessions will be ‘Coached’ sessions

Please note, there are no rental wetsuits available at our Stoke Newington sessions.

The equipment you will require to participate in the session is:

WETSUIT – Ideally a swimming specific wetsuit. All the RG Active coaches will be on hand to offer wetsuit advice.

GOGGLES

LUBRICANT – used to prevent chaffing from your wetsuit around your neck. A non-petroleum based lubricant is best as it will not damage your wetsuit.

SWIM COSTUME or TRI-SUIT – Worn under your wetsuit. This is very important for those of you wanting to practise getting your wetsuit off after the session!

SWIM CAP – We request you wear a brightly coloured swim hat to enable our coaches to see all of the swimmers easily when in the water.

CLOTHES and TOWEL – There are changing facilities at the venue and changing rooms so you can dry yourself and warm up after the sessions.

FOOD and DRINK – The sessions are one hour in duration and we always recommend having something to eat and drink after the session to refuel yourselves.
