On August 12th, join Brent Hayden, 4-time Olympian, Olympic Bronze Medallist and World Champion, for an incredible Open Water Swim Clinic out of Vancouver’s iconic Kits Beach.

Triathletes will get in the water with one of Canada’s most celebrated Olympians to learn the secrets to Brent’s core principles to high performance freestyle, minimizing resistance and maximizing propulsion, to swim faster with fewer strokes and get ahead of the pack. Together with his coach wife Nadina Zarifeh, they’ve developed a program that promises to deliver maximum benefits over a 3 hour clinic.

The session promises to be fun with a dynamic learning environment, empowering participants with new skills that they can readily take to their next multisport event!

  • Hands on coaching; working specifically on stroke technique
  • Swim faster using fewer strokes and better technique
  • Avoiding swim-related injuries
