You are required to be able to swim a half-mile unassisted to attend this clinic.

You should bring a towel, recovery drink, wetsuit (if you plan on wearing one for the race), swim cap (required during race) and goggles. Yes, wetsuits are recommended, for more info on wetsuits checkout www.tri-zone.com, www.triathlonlab.com or www.blueseventy.com for help.
