These 4 week Lyme Regis based Open Water Sea Swimming courses are for children and young teens between the ages of 8 and 14yrs. They will learn the fundamentals of open water swimming together with the skills and techniques to equip them to be comfortable and safe in the open water environment as well as helping with their fitness levels.
The session is led by Malcolm (Swim England Open Water Coach) and assisted by Abi O'Leary in planning and delivery for Summer 2024. Abi is a Level 2 Swimming teacher with 8 years experience teaching all abilities from age 3 to 16. Abi also teaches stand up paddle boarding and is a former lifeguard so is experienced instructing in the water! She was a competitive Club swimmer until the age of 12 and then competed again at Winchester University where she was the swim team Captain for 2 years, planning land and water based coaching sessions alongside studying BSc Sport and Exercise Science. ​ ​
