Whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced swimmer, there is no substitute for training in open water. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to train in the same waters you will be racing. Life Time Tri is excited to host two swim sessions prior to the 2019 South Beach Triathlon, with 100% of proceeds going directly to featured charity partner, Save the Children.

These swim clinics will cover the following basics:

Both sessions will have lifeguard support and utilize buoys to create an actual race course. They provide a great opportunity to pick up valuable open water swimming experience with coaches and other athletes to help make your race a better experience! After going through some basic drills, participants will have plenty of time to enjoy some swimming. All levels of swimmers are welcome.

The cost of each swim clinic is $10, with all proceeds benefiting Save the Children. Participants must register in advance using the link below, and will be required to attend a briefing prior to the start.
