HEAT-Newington Bike – Tri Swim Clinic – Sunday April 7th – SOLD OUT

NOTE – We’ve SOLD OUT for this event but if you want to be on the waiting list please send me an email – membership@ctheat.org.  We wanted to limit this to 25 individuals.  Thanks.

HEAT and Newington Bike  is joining up with Jeff Stuart–one of the best swim coaches and athletes in the region–for a full 2 hour triathlon-specific swim clinic at St. Joe’s in West Hartford.

All levels are welcome – from complete novice to ex-college swimmers.   We are renting the entire pool so you will be in a lane with people of similar ability.   We guarantee that Jeff will have you swimming faster after the 2 hours and ready to take on the open water season.

The session will be limited to 25 individuals and we expect this to sell out fast.

Cost will be $30 for HEAT Members, $40 for non-HEAT Members.
