2015 Open Water Swim Clinic at Forest Park Aquatic Center, Sunday, June 7, 2015

On Sunday, June 7, 2015, the Noblesville Adult Swim Team and Forest Park Aquatic Center will present an Open Water Swimming Clinic to help swimmers prepare for the upcoming Open Water season. The clinic is open to beginners as well as experienced open water swimmers and is designed to develop skills and knowledge specific to racing in open water for swims ranging from the swim leg of a triathlon to channel swims.

To attend, you must be a USMS MEMBER or you may use a FREE 30-day waiver (if you have never used the waiver before) or you may purchase a One-Event Form for $15.  Proceeds from the clinic will go to the Friends of Central Pool, Inc., an Indiana Non-Profit 501 (c)(3) corporation which operates the Forest Park Aquatic Center.

Dick Sidner, a Level 4 USMS-certified coach, race director and open water specialist, will be joined by a league of local and experienced open water swimmers and coaches to deliver this engaging open water-specific curriculum.

The clinic will be delivered in one morning session with and optional session in Morse
Reservoir immediately following a break for lunch. 

Session One:  Pool Open Water and Video Analysis - Forest Park Aquatic Center 8:00-11:00 AM. This session will develop proper form and incorporate training techniques designed to build your open water skill set during pool workouts. This session will include video analysis and group open water drills.

Lunch:  Vegetarian or regular.

Optional Session Two:  Open Water – Morse Reservoir Noon to 1:30 PM. The optional session at Morse Reservoir will teach open water techniques, especially sighting, navigating buoys, beach and water starts and finishes and recommendations appropriate for short or long distance open water swims.  The cost to attend the clinic is $40.00 ($50.00 deck entry), limited to 40 participants.   The optional session in Morse is an additional $20.00.

"Great to hear that you will be doing another swim clinic this year. I use the lessons that I learned in the clinic last year almost every time I'm swimming. At the clinic I learned a lot about sighting and the proper form for triathlon swimming. Those tips helped me to conserve energy and shave minutes off my time. I look forward to attending the clinic again this year."
