Open Water Program


Our Open Water Program will get you prepared for your open water event. The program includes coached, group, open water swims virtually every week during the season. 


Wed workouts: Lake Salisbury located at the end of Chalkwell Dr, Midlothian, VA 23113

Workout Schedule

Open water workouts are held every other Wednesday.

Skills and Endurance Training: Wed: 6-7pm at Lake Salisbury. Workouts are on a marked course and involve a combination of open water skills, intervals and endurance training. Due to space limitations these workouts are available only to Program members and those paying a $15 drop-in donation to SwimRVA.

2019 dates can be found on the Training Calendar

Water Conditions/Inclement Weather

In the event we have predicted inclement weather or water conditions, we will make a cancellation determination no later than 1-hr prior to the workout the day of the swim. Notices will be posted on our Facebook and Twitter pages. If there is no notice posted, the swim will be held as scheduled.

Non-Member Swimmers

Non-members may drop-in to any of our open water workouts. There is a suggested donation to SwimRVA of $15 for lake swims.


Our use of Lake Salisbury is an extreme privilege. This is a beautiful, private lake in the Salisbury subdivision. Speeding in the neighborhood and/or excessive noise (i.e. loud music from your vehicle) will quickly put an end to our welcome. Failure to abide by these rules puts our entire program at risk and thus will be grounds for termination of your membership.
