Overcoming Your Fear of Swimming

Registration for this event is closed
Event Information
Part of the RACE-MANIA programming line-up, this workshop will help you recognize and address the fears you have about pool or open water swimming and help you work past them to free yourself and excel in the water. For those looking for in-water instruction sign up for the workshop plus a private or semi-private lesson with Coach Caron.
Workshop: What you will learn
In the classroom-based workshop, attendees will learn:
  • How to identify what's behind your fear of swimming
  • Coping techniques to move past the fear
  • How to make your mind work for you instead of against you.
Private or Semi-Private Lesson Opportunity
Athletes looking for additional hands-on instruction have the opportunity to get in the pool and work 1-on-1 (private lesson) with Coach Caron or in a small group session (semi-private; limited to 2 people) with Coach Caron. Both the private and semi-private opportunities will allow you to share specific challenges you have with pool or open water swimming and get specific tips and guidance from Coach Caron on how to overcome them.
