Our skills class is for swimmers who are new or are nervous of open water swimming. This is regardless of your swimming experience.
You will be required to wear a wetsuit (SFT do not loan wetsuits) and a brightly coloured swim hat, (apart from red) SFT will have hats for sale for £6 on the day.
We operate a registration system called Lakemate. It will cost you £10 to receive a band. If you lose or break your band you will have to purchase another one. Alternatively if you own a PoolMate Plus, this has the chip in to use the scanner so you will not have to purchase a band.
