Workshops

Open Water Swimming Workshop

Our Open Water Swimming Workshops are aimed at swimmers who are new to open water swimming or swimmers who would like to gain confidence & skill in open water. These sessions use a mindful approach to introduce those who can swim comfortably in the pool and tread water to the wonderful world of open water swimming. These sessions cater for swimmers who may have a fear or are nervous in open water.

Our workshops start in the Galway Bay Hotel with an introduction to the Ebb&Flow coaching team and fellow swimmers, a dry land discussion on open water swimming and how best to prepare. We then do a practical session at Crabpool Beach where we cover open water safety, fundamental skills for being comfortable in the water and assessments of your current swimming ability with tips on how to gain confidence and competency. 

We finish up with a post session debrief over a warm cup of tea or coffee back at the hotel.
