Open Water Resources 

Many swimmers on our team have taken to places like, Stiles Pond, Hood Pond, Chebacco Lake, Singing beach, Niles beach and various others around the area to get their workouts in. If you plan to utilize one of the local swimming areas, please make sure that you research and abide by all rules before setting out, and that you practice social distancing by limiting the number of people in your swim group. 

If you are interested in branching into open water swimming, but don’t know where to start, here is a great article that I came across with some tips as well as different workouts that you can use while open water swimming. I have also included some videos about sighting techniques and other helpful info.
