Los Angeles Triathlon Club
Swim Event
The Ocean 101
Description The Ocean 101 is more of an introduction to the ocean, rather than a swim clinic. We'll start with some (mandatory) beach instruction, discuss ocean rhythms, currents, surf, tides, entering and exiting, etc. Then, conditions permitting, we'll hit the waters to practice some basic techniques. Above all else, we want you to feel comfortable and safe in the ocean.

We ask that you can swim 300 meters non-stop freestyle in a pool, in order to attend. That's 12 widths of the pool, non-stop.

Bring dollar bills and quarters for the 'two buck' parking. Or just dollar bills for the exotic dancers.

The Ocean 101 has an RSVP list (8 people max) on the Polls/RSVP page. There is a small waiting list attached.

The Ocean 101 is free, but only open to Los Angeles Triathlon Club members.

We meet promptly at 6:15 am, and finish at 7:30 am.

If you sign up, and then need to cancel, please remove your name from the RSVP list by the Tuesday morning before, thus allowing others to attend. If you leave your name on the list, and don't show up, you can not attend another Ocean 101 in 2010.

Please bring a swimming wetsuit (required), goggles, and a brightly colored swim cap (note: dark green, dark blue, black, etc. are NOT bright colors)
With 3 days advance notice, you can borrow a wetsuit from Bike Improve, http://www.bike-improve.com ,for the day. They are a club sponsor.

1)Take the I-10 into Santa Monica, and exit at Lincoln (south)
2) Drive about one mile south, to Ocean Park Blvd. (There's a stoplight)
3) Go west (to the ocean) until you reach a stop sign at a 'T' intersection.
4) Go left (south) for about 40 yards to a stop sign.
5) Make a right into the parking area, and then an immediate right into the smaller of the two parking lots.
6) Bring quarters and /or dollar bills for parking. That's Ocean Park.
