Open Water Swim Squad at London Royal Docks

Our squad sessions have now finished for the 2018 summer season… please keep an eye on this page early next year to see what our plans are for 2019…

We hope you’ve enjoyed our Swim Squad sessions – we look forward to seeing you all again in 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 (Starting 20th June 2018)
