SEPT. 21ST & OCT. 6TH OPEN WATER SWIM SKILLS CLINIC FOR WOMEN AT MACHINE PERFORMANCE CENTER in Vienna, VA. Nerves over the swim portion of triathlon is often the biggest barrier to entry for new triathletes. Speed Sherpa Head Coach Dave will work one on one with athletes at a private pool to help build your skills and confidence in the water. He will also provide you drills and swim sets you can do on your own that will translate into an open water environment. Dave is a 7-time World Championship qualifying triathlete (short course, long course, and off-road). He has more than a decade of triathlon coaching experience, 20 years swim coaching experience, and was an ocean life guard for many years. Join us for a social gathering after the clinic with current Speed Sherpa women team members to talk triathlon or anything else you want!
