Derby Triathlon Club


Coached Pool Swimming
Our coached swim sessions are structured in such a way that whether you are a novice to triathlon or an experienced age-grouper we can help you achieve your swimming goals.

These swim sessions are very popular and we do not wish to discourage anyone from taking up triathlon but we do not have sufficient coaches to teach people how to swim. We therefore ask that anyone who attends a pool swim session is able to complete 200m (8 lengths) of front crawl without stopping.  If this is slightly beyond your current ability please contact and we will do all we can to get your swimming to a level where you can join in with and benefit from the Club coached sessions.

We would also like all members to follow this guidance on training etiquette for pool swim sessions. This makes it easier for the coaches to coach the sessions and enables us all to get more from the limited time we have so that every training session is as beneficial to everyone as possible.

Club members are required to sign-up for swim sessions via the online booking system.

If you are thinking of joining and want to try a taster session (free) or you are a triathlete temporarily in the area looking for a somewhere to train then please email and we will do our best to accomodate you.

Open Water Swimming
During the summer months we operate an Open Water Site at Barton Marnia.  Swimming is open to both Club members and non-members with coached sessions available for Club members only.  For more details please click here.
