Coach Bio

 

Firstly, it’s important that you know who will be running your sessions, so let me introduce myself a bit more thoroughly:

I am an STA- and Swim Ireland-qualified swimming teacher and coach, with over ten years’ experience in the aquatics industry. I have worked across a range of teaching and coaching contexts, both at home and abroad, and with a rich diversity of swimmers, from complete beginners through to regional-level athletes. For the past three years, I have been working with swimmers seeking to transition from the pool to the open water environment, delivering sessions based around the core competencies for open water swimming. In addition to my work as a coach, I am also a trainer assessor with the Royal Life Saving Society, providing training to open water and pool lifeguards, swimming teachers/coaches and first responders.

 

NEXT COURSE DATES

 

Thursday 19th August 

Beginner - 7.30pm

Improver - 8.30pm 

 

Saturday 11th September

Beginner  -10.30am

Improver - 9.30am

 

Session Overview & Weekly Programme 

Beginner – 6 week course – Swim cap and tow float provided - £75

 

Each session will last for 45 minutes, with around 30 minutes in the water and 15 minutes afterwards for Q&A over a hot drink. The weekly sessions will have a different focus each week, helping you to build your skills and confidence in the open water. An outline programme is given below; however, please note that this may be adapted to suit the needs to the group.

 

Week 1

 

Session Focus : Acclimatisation/ Buoyancy

 

The first week will centre on getting used to the open water environment. From tips on how to get your body accustomed to the cold water, floatation, breath control and effective propulsion, this session will give you the fundamentals on which to build week by week.

 

Week 2

 

Session Focus : Stroke Adaptations

 

In the second session, we’ll work on some of the key elements of good swimming technique in the open water. We’ll think specifically about body position, leg kick, arm action and breathing.

 

Week 3

 

Session Focus : Sighting

 

Week three will focus on the core open water skill of sighting – the ability to focus on a certain point and direct your swim there, without the help of lane ropes. We’ll look at useful markers in the open water and how you can be sure you’re swimming in a straight line. 

 

Week 4

 

Session Focus : Drafting

 

Drafting – the ability to swim in another swimmer’s slipstream – is the key skill for week four. This week, we’ll be thinking about the advantages and disadvantages of swimming this way, how to do it effectively (and what not to do!)

 

Week 5 

 

Session Focus : Starts & Turns

 

In week five, we’ll thinking about how we start an open water event and how this mass start effects your swimming. Swimming in a tightly-packed group can be daunting, but it’s a really useful skill to master. We’ll also think about how to turn efficiently around a buoy.

 

Week 6

 

Session Focus : Building Stamina

 

Our last week will be focused on building stamina for longer distances, with the aim of everyone completing a circuit of the 250m course and perhaps even more. You will be given tips on how to build your stamina, ideas for training sets and have the opportunity to put everything you’ve learnt into practice for a final swim.

The first week will centre on getting used to the open water environment. From tips on how to get your body accustomed to the cold water, floatation, breath control and effective propulsion, this session will give you the fundamentals on which to build week by week (dependant on the experience level of the group).

 

Week 2

 

Session Focus : Stroke Adaptations

 

In the second session, we’ll work on some of the key elements of good swimming technique in the open water and how these differ from the pool environment. We’ll also think about how you can build these open water skills into your pool sessions.

 

Week 3

 

Session Focus : Sighting

 

Week three will focus on the core open water skill of sighting – the ability to focus on a certain point and direct your swim there, without the help of lane ropes. We’ll look at useful markers in the open water and how you can be sure you’re swimming in a straight line.

Important Info

What to bring with you

Included in the price of the course, you will receive a tow float and a swimming cap when you arrive for your first session. It is important that you bring these with you every week and have them on/attached to you while in the water. 

In addition to your swimming cap and tow float, you should bring:

  • A wetsuit/swimming costume/shorts (the choice is yours!)
  • goggles (recommended, but not essential)
  • a bottle of water
  • a towel and/or a changing robe
  • warm clothing (including a hat)

Other items you may wish to consider bringing to the session:

  • earplugs
  • neoprene hat/gloves/boots
  • swim shoes/flip-flops
  • a (swim) watch

 

Opportunities for further practice

In addition to our sessions together, you are also very welcome to book onto the thrice-weekly open water sessions at Let's Go Hydro. These run on a Monday evening (6pm-9pm), a Thursday evening (6pm-9pm) and a Saturday morning (9am-12md). Training plans for various distances are available from the coach.

 

Health and safety considerations

Water temperature

At present, the water temperature is sitting around 12oC[JM1] . The water WILL feel cold when you enter it, even if wearing a wetsuit. Although we will work on acclimatisation in the first session, you may want to consider beginning the process by spending short bursts of time in a cold shower. You could start with 30 seconds to 1 minute and gradually build up, perhaps even spending some time in a cold bath in the week leading up your session.

Be aware of the signs and symptoms of hypothermia

 

The signs and symptoms of hypothermia include:

  • Shivering
  • Exhaustion or feeling very tired
  • Confusion
  • Fumbling hands
  • Memory loss
  • Slurred speech
  • Drowsiness

You should be vigilant for any of these signs and symptoms, inform the coach if you experience them, exit the water and put on warm clothing. 

 

When you first enter the water, you may experience some signs and symptoms of cold water shock. This is our body’s natural reaction to being submerged in cold water. The most common reaction is a change in breathing (a series of short, sharp gasps, followed by rapid breathing (hyperventilation). You may also experience a spike in blood pressure, as your body draws blood away from your extremities and towards your core. You learn how to manage the effects of cold water shock in the first few weeks of the programme, but the most important thing is to focus on getting your breathing under control. 

 

Following a session, you may also experience what is known as “after drop”, where your body temperature continues to drop for a period of time after you have exited the water. This is why you often feel colder when you exit the water than you did while you were in it. Linked with this “after drop”, you may experience shivering, a feeling of lightheadedness or slight nausea. They key to warming up is to do so gradually, by putting on warm clothing and sipping a warm drink.

 

Know your limits

When you start out in the open water time is always much more important than distance. These sessions will gradually build up your time in the water; however, if at any time you find yourself extremely cold or shivery, you should let the coach know and exit the water. Similarly, if you find yourself tiring more than usual, or a distance you've been asked to swim seems unattainable, do not attempt it. 

 

You should also swim at your own pace. although we are going to be developing techniques for open water events, there will be no serious racing involved in the sessions and you should feel under no pressure to swim at a certain speed.

 

Check in, check out

At the beginning and end of every session, swimmers will be marked in and out. It is vital that you do not enter or exit the water, for whatever reason, without first making the coach aware. This for your own safety and wellbeing.

 

Entering/exiting the water

Sessions will take place in the Lido. There is a small beach area that we will use as our entry and exit point. Please take care when entering the water, as the beach area drops off steeply, meaning that you can quickly find yourself out of your depth. The coach will remind you of this each week, but it is important to enter the water slowly and carefully, being mindful of the changes in depth.

 

Swimming cap and tow float

Your brightly coloured swimming cap and tow float are vital pieces of kit for your open water experience. The cap ensures that you are easily recognisable as a member of the introductory/improver group, while the tow float offers the opportunity to pause and rest, without having to tread water (should you need to). These two pieces equipment work in conjunction to offer a heightened level of safety while swimming in the open water environment and it is, therefore, essential that you bring them with you to each session.
