2024 Open Water Swim Clinics by sailfish


Our Open Water Swim Clinics are back!  

For the 12th consecutive year, Empire Tri Club will be hosting our extremely popular Open Water Swim Clinic series to help athletes of all abilities prepare for triathlons and open water swim events.  Our #1 goal is safety, and we strive to make every swimmer, no matter your swim ability, leave feeling more confident and prepared for your upcoming event.

Athletes are broken into small groups based on ability level to practice skills and learn race tips specific to their swim ability and comfort level.  At the end of each clinic, we combine all the groups to create a “race simulation” so you can experience what it will be like on race day and overcome any fears you may have.

Empire Tri Club’s open water swim clinics fulfill the NYC Triathlon Swim Requirement!  You will receive a certificate of completion prior to race day.  If you do not get into the clinic or prefer a more intimate setting to work on individual swim technique, we are happy to set you up with a coach for a 1 on 1 open water swim lesson (1-3 swimmers) which also fulfill the NYC Triathlon Swim Requirement. Please note, we do not pair swimmers together.  Sign up here and email info@empiretriclub.com to be connected with a coach!
