The course will start at 1pm and lasts 1 hour.
It is suitable for children who can swim 50m and will include an open water swim with one of our coaches.
Places are limited so it will be on a first registered basis only, no on the day places available as we need to plan the water safety and coaching ratios. There will be a limited number of children’s wetsuit available so please bring your own if you have one.
Your child will need-

- trainers or flip flops
- a smile
Parents will need-
