Open Water Swim Clinics  

Register for the open water swim clinic to get tips, advice & training from professional swim & triathlon coaches! The clinic is open to a wide range of skill levels: swimmers who are training for their first ever triathlon to swim endurance athletes to those training for the upcoming Ironman. This will give you a great opportunity to grow your confidence and comfort level to increase your ability to swim safely and continuously in open water and during a race/triathlon. 

Shelby Farms Park, along with community partners are offering a limited number of sessions and time slots for registered participants to swim a small course in Hyde Lake. The course will be approximately a 300 ft /1km x 75 ft rectangle. 

There will be lifeguards on duty, as well as coaches and volunteers near the shore and in the water on kayaks, paddle boards, and/or boats. 

A swim cap will be provided for all clinic participants. It is recommended to bring goggles and a towel.

Please note: This is not a “learn to swim” clinic. Participants need to be able to swim independently. All participants must complete a swimming certification to swim in the program. (See below for more details.)
