NOTE – We’ve SOLD OUT for this event but if you want to be on the waiting list please send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.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.
