Open Water Swim Squad at London Royal Docks

Following the huge success of our squad sessions in 2018 … we will be running them again throughout the summer season of 2019…

Squad Sessions start on Wednesday 22nd May 2019! 

OWS Swim Squad will consist of three groups with different ability levels. Swim with your own ability group and try to get into the next level group – of course, at the coaches discretion.

In your first session you will be assessed and you will be put into the correct ability group. Your goal is to progress to a higher group and captain your group. Group captain swims for free!! Use of the NOWCA Swim 400m will be used as bench marks of your progress.

Squad session is held Every Wednesday at 6pm
