IES is working to grow excitement for, and participation in, Open Water Swimming in our LSC.

Only a small percentage of our athletes competed in open water events in the past year. However, IES will be the host for the 2023 Western Zone Open Water Championships at Lake Couer d'Alene, Idaho, in late August of 2023, and we are excited for this opportunity to educate our LSC about open water swimming, and to encourage greater levels of involvement from our athletes.

Additional information on open water swimming can be found on the USA Swimming website HERE.

Specific questions about open water swimming can be addressed to our Open Water Chair, Jeff Walkley [email protected]
