Summer 2021 Swim Sessions - Calgary, AB, Silver Springs Outdoor Pool
Time & Location
About the Event
We love swimming and we want to share our enthusiasm with you!
Join the Mount Royal University Triathlon Club for 18 Facilitated (Coached) sessions at the 33m Silver Springs Outdoor pool in sunny Calgary this summer! Read full details>>> HERE
These sessions are geared towards triathlon swimming - but you don't need to be a triathlete to join. Many of our participants swim for triathlons, however, others swim for fitness and enjoyment exclusively. The Mount Royal Triathlon Club is an all inclusive social club and beginner swimmers are welcome (*see some safety prerequisite conditions below).
WHAT WILL WE DO IN THE POOL?
The sessions will progress from reintroduction to swimming and swim fitness post-pandemic pool-closures, on to skills development, fitness, and endurance training and finally speed and power development in the front crawl stroke primarily. Each morning we will take you through a structured workout consisting of a warm-up, pre-set, main set, and cool down. Sometimes we add in pool games and other fun activities! Through the course of the program we will learn ALL main swim strokes and even some you may not have heard of!
WHO CAN REGISTER - ARE THERE PREREQUISITES?
- All swimmers are welcome - we are a triathlon club, however, this is a swim program.
- Swimmers must be 15 years of age or older
- *For safety, swimmers must have the ability to swim 100m front Crawl unaided (not using the lane ropes for support)
This program is beginner friendly, however, you will need basic swim ability; If you are looking to learn to swim, this program is not correct for you.
