Open Water Swim Program
P3’s Open Water Swim program at Fox Brook Park in Brookfield is one of the most popular programs we offer. On any given Monday evening from the beginning of June though the end of August over 100 triathletes can be found practicing on our well marked 400 meter open water swim course. We have lifeguards both on the beach as well as in the water on paddle boards and in kayaks.
Open Water Swim Clinics
P3’s Open Water swim clinics take place on Monday evenings during the open water swim program. Certified coaches provide instruction for both beginner and intermediate level triathletes. Here’s your chance to get comfortable swimming in open water while learning everything you need to know about the swim segment of a triathlon. The coaches will demonstrate key open water swimming skills and provide you with plenty of time to practice course sighting, turning around buoys, drafting and mass starts. We will also provide you with tips for dealing with pre-race jitters, remaining calm in the water, positioning yourself at the start of the race and swimming in a wetsuit.
Note: P3 has the open water swims sanctioned through USA Triathlon (USAT). All swimmers must be current USAT members.
