Whether you are an experienced swimmer, a triathlete or fitness swimmer, the WVU Open Swim Club has a lane for you! The WVU Open Swim Club is a program at the Student Rec Center designed to improve your swimming, learn and implement new techniques, and take your current workouts to the next level. We are a group of water enthusiasts looking to meet new people, have fun and get fit. We pride ourselves on our program offering something to everyone, including, but not limited to, triathletes looking to improve their swimming skills or swimmers looking to change their workouts and improve their techniques.

*Program will begin Tuesday, August 22nd and run through December 7th.

PRACTICE SCHEDULE

  • Sunday 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm
  • Tuesday through Thursday 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm.

Participants may choose how often they come to practice and which practices they attend. This program is designed to provide opportunities to participants with busy schedules. Each practice, coaches will lead a structured workout which incorporates drills and stroke techniques to improve time, form, and confidence.

Practice is open to all SRC members. Drop-ins are welcome; a guest pass is available for $10.00 at the front desk of the SRC. Participants must be able to swim 100 yards and have basic knowledge of swimming. Bring a cap, goggles and water to every practice! To get the most out of your workouts we recommend purchasing fins, pull buoy and paddles.
