Open Water Swim Clinic — Sunday, March 13th 2016, 3:00pm, Butcher Jones Recreational Area, Saguaro Lake, Arizona

DSCN5372cCome put theory into practice in a friendly environment! This clinic is free and open to all. We’ll meet on the beach at Butcher Jones Cove at Saguaro Lake at 3:00pm. Look for the WannaTri tent.  This clinic will be CHILLY so wetsuits are REQUIRED and we will be spending a shorter time in the water than we usually do for our clinics.  However, if you’re doing Lake Havasu or an early season travel race like Oceanside 70.3, this clinic is perfect for you!  If you are doing a triathlon later in the season, please check out our other (warmer) clinics in April and August.

Don’t have a wetsuit?  Don’t like your current wetsuit?  Stop by the Scottsdale Tribe Multisport (not the Mesa store) in the week prior to this clinic to get a FREE rental wetsuit for you to “tri” (har har) just for the clinic.  A HUGE thank you to Tribe for the help!

It’s highly recommended you bring your running shoes and trisuit, so you can take a 10 minute jog prior to the start of the clinic (so you’re extra warm and toasty when we swim).

Remember you need to buy a Tonto Pass for $6 before entering the park. You can now buy them online here or at many local retailers.

This clinic will just be one smaller group.  We’ll get in the water around 3:20pm.  We’ll have a brief discussion prior to practicing covering the following:

  • Adapting to cold water swimming
  • The parts of your technique that are most important in open water
  • Sighting
  • Drafting
  • Race Strategy

This clinic will fill to capacity so make sure to RSVP here or Contact Us to reserve your spot!
