Free introduction to open water swimming for children

Open Water Safety-Drowning Prevention


Swimyourswim will be hosting in partnership with Thrybergh Country Park, a free introduction to open water swimming course for children between the ages of 10 and 16 on Saturday 21st of July 2018.

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-

  • swimming costume
  • towel
  • warm clothes for after ( loose fitting clothing, multiple layers are best )
  • a brightly coloured swim cap ( don’t worry we have them available )
  • trainers or flip flops
  • a smile

Parents will need-

  • To stay within sight of their children during the session
  • Be ready with an ice cream or hot chocolate after the swim


We look forward to seeing you on the 21st.
