SWIM TECHNIQUE CLASS (MONDAYS) + SPLASH & DASH CHALLENGE (WEDNESDAYS)

Training for a triathlon or want to become a triathlete? Join our weekly 60-minute SWIM TECHNIQUE classes and/or our weekly SPLASH & DASH CHALLENGE to get ready for an Indoor Triathlon, the Chicago Triathlon, a full Ironman, or just to learn how to improve your freestyle swim technique! Open to all ages & ability levels, these programs are led by some of Chicago’s top USA TRIATHLON (USAT) and US MASTERS SWIMMING (USMS) certified coaches, including the head coach of 4 STAR ENDURANCE, Coach Chris (4starendurance.com/coach-chris) and feature a fun, all-inclusive community of athletes from beginners to Ironman finishers and even national championship qualifiers!

TRIATHLON FREESTYLE "SWIM TECHNIQUE" CLASSES

The SWIM TECHNIQUE classes are weekly 60-minute technique-focused swim training sessions designed for adults of all ability levels, with a primary focus on FREESTYLE swim technique. Each class will feature at least 3-6 different swim lanes divided by ability level and will typically complete up to the following distances on any given week, but may vary based on skills and drills:

  • LEARN TO SWIM (6:30pm class only) - up to 1,500 yds
  • BEGINNER - up to 1,600yds
  • INTERMEDIATE - up to 2,000 yds
  • ADVANCED - up to 2,500 yds
  • "SCARYFAST" - up to 3,000+ yds

We have two classes every Monday night at 5:30pm and 6:30pm - feel free to attend whichever class works best for your schedule as our coaches are experienced at adapting both classes to the participants who attend on any given night.

MONDAYS 5:30pm - SWIM TECHNIQUE II (ALL ABILITY LEVELS)

Our 5:30pm class is open to all ability levels from beginner to advanced, swimming about 1,600-3,000 yards on average. For the best experience, we expect most swimmers in this class to be able to comfortably swim 100 yards non-stop.

MONDAYS 6:30pm - SWIM TECHNIQUE I (BEGINNER FRIENDLY)

If you're not quite there yet, or simply want a fresh start on breathing skills & basic freestyle technique, consider starting with our 6:30pm class that will also feature at least one swim lane dedicated to true first-timers with lower volume of about 1,200-1,500 yards per class in a dedicated "Learn to Swim" lane. This lane will feature a progressive 4-week development program to help you learn the basics and build confidence to "graduate up" to higher volume swimming. Advanced athletes are still welcome to attend either class, as both classes will feature lanes and workouts tailored to a wide range of ability levels!
