TTC will have sanctioned open water swims for all members, free of charge on Wednesday's at Cherry Beach throughout July & August. New this year we will also have a series of 3 Splash N Dash events throughout the summer. These timed swim/run event are meant to be fun, yet challenge you to push a little harder to simulate race day. See below for more details & dates.
All OWS sessions will start at 6:30pm, and will be coached by Miranda Tomenson. We will be in the water reviewing various OWS concepts, from race simulation, to technique, to starts. Below is the weekly schedule:
July 5 - Drills: Floating, how to breath without swallowing water, basic technique work
July 12 - Sighting & Cornering
July 19 - Starts & Drafting
July 26 - Race simulation: Pre-swim dryland activation and warmup, simulate the race start and a 400 to 1500m TT.
