Team MPI Open Water Swim Clinic - Boise, ID

Sunday June 4 2017

Team MPI is conducting it's highly successful Open Water Swim Clinic on Sunday June 4th starting at 8:00am at Quinn's Pond in Boise, ID. This FREE clinic will be a 30 minute dry-land presentation followed by a 45-60 minute beach and open water demonstration and practice. ALL ABILITIES ARE WELCOME!





Registration is REQUIRED (SEE BELOW)



This is a great opportunity to get world class instruction on open water swimming before those "A" races in 2017. While an Elite Ironman competitor would love this clinic, so would a first-time triathlete who wanted to learn the best way to swim in open water. There will be volunteers on SUPs (stand up paddle boards) as well as a lifeguard. This is THE clinic to attend to improve your triathlon swimming!


If you have ANY questions about the camp, please contact Mark Sortino:

Additionally, we're excited to be partnered with blueseventy who will off FREE wetsuit testing on their FANTASTIC line. If interested, please contact Mark HERE and plan to arrive at Quinn's pond about 30min early - around 7:30am. This is another great opportunity for athletes to actually try a wetsuit on before buying one.
