Open Water Clinics


Our open water clinics are built for beginning and intermediate open water swimmers, triathletes, and curious fitness swimmers looking to enjoy our greatest outdoor resource. There is no combination of swimmers and coaches in Minnesota with more open water and triathlon swimming, coaching, and racing experience, than our seasoned professionals.
Our sessions have been refined over the course of over 100 group open water clinics and camps, openly available in Minnesota since the early 2000s, with Minnesota Tri Club, Minnesota Tri Masters, Total Immersion, and YWCA Minneapolis.

Now, we've improved the experience further. 

Included in each clinic

  • An extensive review of open water skills and equipment

  • Expertly-design technical progressions for optimizing an open water swim

  • Guided swims and skill-building exercises 

  • Recommendations for comfort, speed, endurance, and strategy.

  • Filming and uploading every swimmer's open water stroke for post-session recommendations

  • Two post-clinic practice plans for pool and open water practice

Not only did all of you instill in me, greater confidence in swimming and preparing for my first triathlon, but all of you gave me the pleasure of swimming without struggle.
