Open Water Swim Training- Get comfortable in the open water and/or practice your swim technique in a lake within the St. Louis Metropolitan area! Each Saturday from May  through June – 8:00 am to 10:00 am.

 Where are the open water swim sessions?

The lake is located at New Town in St. Charles and is the exact swim course used in the Big Shark New Town Triathlon. The lake course is a .62 mile swim and in most areas you can touch bottom. Come join us each Saturday and swim as many laps as you like. For sighting, as well as your safety and convenience, there will be buoys in the water.

And wait there’s more: Wetsuit demo’s at every session! Demo’s and fittings are included with your admission.

Cost: $15.00 per session. Fee covers insurance, life guards, clinic, and set-up. Big Shark Triathlon Team and St. Louis Tri Club will receive a discount because you’re all so very special.
