Open Water Workout Resources:

As beaches open, some might be considering options for an open water workout. 

First and foremost, clubs/swimmers must comply with all local, state and federal health guidelines.  

If putting together a plan, here are the 3 key issues to know before any OW Practice:

1. Safety!
2. Line of sight
3. Follow the local requirements for swimming and "active use" of the body of water

USA Swimming has posted a number of Open Water workout recommendations that can be found here: USA Swimming Open Water
