Open Water Fundamentals
Virtual Aquatics Swim Team (VAST) is partnering with Academy Bullets Masters (ABM) to host an open water swimming clinic for masters swimmers of all ability levels. Swimmers will learn and practice skills that will help them in triathlons, open water swims, and training events. Coaches will provide demonstrations as well as event takeaways that attendees can bring home with them. The goal is to gain the confidence and knowledge to perform better in the open water.
Chris Colburn is the Head Coach of ABM in Aurora, Illinois and the Lead Coach for VAST. He has over a quarter century of experience coaching swimmers of all ages and ability levels. Chris called “The Beach” his backyard pool for almost eight years. He has developed many ideas on using the facility’s unique features to teach a myriad of open water topics in a controlled environment.
