The SAA Swim Program is designed to provide a swim training regimen for adult triathletes and adult recreational swimmers of all levels and experience. We provide 4 dedicated lanes and a certified coach for each practice. Our focus is on stroke technique, endurance, strength, speed, and fun. Swimmers can expect to log between 1800 and 3500 meters per workout. We provide two 60 minute swims per week, from September through July, Wednesday, and Friday early mornings at Watermania in Richmond. Take advantage of our 50 meter pool!!
In late spring and through the summer, we also enjoy open water swims at Boundary Bay, ranging from 1000 meters to 3000 meters.. These tend to be scheduled with less notice as they are subject to weather and tides.
