Swimming is often the weakest event faced by triathletes, which is why the Rockville Swim and Fitness Center will offer two swimming programs geared specifically to the open-water component of a triathlon.

Center’s certified coaches understand the challenges of open-water swimming and the need to swim efficiently. Beginners to world-class triathletes can take part. Register with the course number listed below at www.rockvillemd.gov/registration.
