Saturday, June 9th starting at 8:30 AM, Brian Long will be hosting our annual beginner/ refresher swim clinic in conjunction with the Carlsbad Triathlon. This is a permitted clinic and there will be state lifeguards on site.
For those that would like to attend, here is what you can expect:
Please join Carlsbad Triathlon sponsor, Brian Long, at Tamarack State Beach, lifeguard tower 36, north of Tamarack avenue near Cherry Street, for a FREE surf entry clinic. This clinic will last about 1 hour and will cover:
- There's nothing to fear. Ask an 8 year old.
- Waves?!?! What now?
- Best practices for surf entry/exits if you don't plan on winning.
- Sighting, goggles and my swim cap.
- Can't anyone swim straight anymore?
- What to do if you need help in the water
After a brief talk we will break out into groups and hit the ocean for entry practice and practice swims. Wetsuits and sunscreen are optional but a good idea. Off-street parking is available or you can park at Tamarack State Parking Lot for a fee.
This is a great opportunity to work on your confidence for the athlete and to help out others for the more experienced. Hope to see you there!!
