Nervous about swimming in triathlon? No previous experience or not confident in swimming? Don't worry! Come and join us for our taster session at the Sportspark swimming pool!


The session won't be anything challenging, its just to get your, and even some of our current members, feet wet (literally)! We have several beginners in triathlon and swimming in our club, so you won't feel out of place. We also have captains available on spot to help with any questions you might have or advice with swimming you feel like you need; we're here to help!


Tickets will be available the day of the Sports Fayre (25th September) - you'll be able to ask us more questions there and have a chance to meet our lovely committee members and have a quick chat!


What do I need to bring?


Bring goggles, a towel, your swimsuit, some water (to drink!), and a bag to either store poolside or in a locker (you'll need a padlock for a locker too).


Where will we meet?


We will meet in front of the Sportspark Cafe inside the Sportspark main area to head in to the pool locker rooms together - this is just in case your card/the reader malfunctions when entering.


Do I need to have experience in swimming?


It might seem obvious, but a basic level of swimming is necessary, but you don't have to be technical or know every stroke - front crawl/freestyle will be fine! And pace doesn't matter!


Any other questions?
