BAM Open Water Swim Clinic

TriHive and The Battle at Midway Triathlon (BAM) are sponsoring an open water swim clinic and BAM Tri Pre-Race Training Day. For those of you who may be a little worried about open water swimming, this would be a great opportunity to try it out in a non-race environment. For those seasoned open water swimmers it would be a great opportunity to refine your skills and get in a training swim. Best of all, the clinic is FREE!
