Curriculum: Open Water Swimming

Open water swimming isn't always about who is the best swimmer (even though that helps). Most of the time it's about who can outsmart their opponent. Learn the strategy of the best open water swimmers in the world by working with Olympic open water swimmer Chloe Sutton and practice the skills, drills, and exercises that she uses in the pool that her get her hand on the finishing pad FIRST in the open water.

  • Freestyle Technique: In open water, your freestyle stroke must maximize every ounce of efficiency possible. Long, relaxed strokes are very important to being able to finish a long distance race. Learn how to maximize your efficiency and energy conservation technqiues for your freestyle so that you can swim long and fast just like Chloe Sutton

  • Sighting: When you swim open water, you have to lift your head to see where you're going. Learn to use aligator eyes to glance forward and sight landmarks so that you don't go off course in your next open water race.

  • Open Water Strategy: How should you position yourself in the pack during each leg, during the turn, and when should you make your move. A lot of the technqiue for open water strategy comes from knowing yourself and your opponent. Find out how to put yourself in a position to win.

  • Drafting: When you draft behind your competitor, you conserve up to 20% of your energy. You MUST learn how to body surf on your opponents wake in order to have the energy to blast past them at the end. Learn what it feels like to draft properly and how to get into that position.

  • Feeding: When and how you feed in open water is something that takes practice and skill. Learn to keep snacks in your suit as well as how to pass feeding stations so that you don't loose time or your position.
