Triathlon swimming practice in Las Vegas occurs in pools throughout the community. Many train on their own at their health clubs, others a part of regular coached pool sessions. Lake Mead is our lake for practicing open water swims.
Most of our coaches will work with beginning as well as seasoned athletes to teach them what they need to know to get through their initial races. For many beginners the swim can be the most unfamiliar and scariest part of the event – don’t let that stop you!!!
Do to the fact that swimming is an athletic, technical and emotional challenge for some we recommend that you work with a coach to get the basics down if you are new to the sport. We also recommend that if you have any concerns about your ability when you go to the lake, that you take a personal flotation device like a lifeguards buoy, until you are sure of your abilities.
