winter swim club 2019/20

We have hosted a WINTER SWIM CLUB for the last few years at our lake in Lincoln and the 2019/20 season will be running every SUNDAY MORNING (10 am to 12 noon) from Sunday 20th October 2019 until Sunday 29th March 2020

Our popular WINTER SWIM CLUB is for swimmers who like to challenge themselves and see HOW LOW THEY CAN GO!

Don't be fooled though, this is a serious undertaking and should not be approached lightly. Please note - due to the nature of this activity it is only available to persons over 18 years.

There is a well informed article in the link below if you want more information about swimming in COLD WATER before you sign up -

Due to the nature of this activity we make attendance at an INDUCTION DAY for new members compulsory.

 

The FIRST induction day for the 2019/2020 season will be on SUNDAY 20th OCTOBER 2019 starting at 10 am until 2 pm and includes lunch, warm drinks and a full programme of information and swim sessions.

You must be pre signed onto the INDUCTION DAY as we need to reserve you a place - you do this by BUYING A TICKET through the BUY NOW button above.

This is for your safety, if you have not swum at low temperatures then some understanding of the effects this can have on your body is required.

 

Anyone who thinks it is OK to just turn up and 'give it a go' is either mad or does not understand the dangers enough to participate and we are probably not the club for you.

 

PLEASE DO NOT just go jump in a lake without understanding the potential risks and balancing that against the many benefits - our INDUCTION DAY is an ideal opportunity to do this, ask questions and learn all about COLD WATER SWIMMING.

 

If you have previously completed our COLD WATER SWIMMING INDUCTION SESSION then you DO NOT need to complete another induction unless you want too.

 

If you have NOT previously completed our COLD WATER SWIMMING INDUCTION SESSION then you will NOT BE ABLE TO SWIM until you have competed the session.

 

THE ONLY EXEMPTION we will consider is if you have verifiable experience such as having previously completed an ICE MILE - if this is the case then please contact us to discuss your options.

FOR THE 2019/20 SEASON PLEASE NOTE -

There is NO PAY AS YOU GO OPTION for the WINTER SWIMMING we run a WINTER SWIM CLUB which you join by completing an INDUCTION SESSION and then committing to either -

A FULL SEASON PASS (£150 = 25 swim opportunities)

A FIVE SWIM CARD (£45)

A TEN SWIM CARD (£80)

ALL TICKETS INCLUDE A HOT DRINK AFTER YOUR SWIM - food will be available to purchase on the day.

All options are AVAILABLE TO BUY in our ONLINE SHOP or OVER THE COUNTER each SUNDAY between 10 am and 12 noon (last swimmer in the water at 11.45 am)

SHOWERS will NOT be available during the WINTER SWIM SESSIONS - if you need to ask why then you probably don't understand the implications - you should read this well written and informative article -
