Introduction to Open Water Swimming Courses underway

Swimyourswim has launched this summers first iTOWS course with NINETEEN swimmers taking part and successfully transitioning from being pool swimmers to open water swimmers.

The iTOWS Course – Introduction To Open Water Swimming Course – is a one off course designed to help any swimmer understand the dangers of open water swimming, and be well prepared for a successful open water swim.

Of the 19 swimmers taking part in this seasons first iTOWS course, some of the athletes were budding Great North Swimmers, some soon-to-be Triathletes, and others were pool swimmers wanting to have a more ‘adventurous’ swim experience!  All of the swimmers were able to swim at least 200m.  Each swimmer took part in a short classroom session with one of Swimyourswim’s Lead Coaches, before taking part in a their first coached swim.

If you would like to experience the joys of open water swimming in a safe and secure environment, the iTOWS course is for you! Perhaps you’ve signed up for the Great North Swim, or are thinking of doing a Triathlon this year, why not join us at the next iTOWS course?

The iTOWS courses are running each week at BOTH our venues – Thursday evenings at Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre, Doncaster and, Saturday afternoons at Thrybergh Country Park, Rotherham.

The iTOWS course costs £25 plus the venues course fee of £5.  (Wetsuits can also be hired using our wetsuit hire page.)
