Fearless Warrior Open-water

Group Swims

Fearless Warrior Pop-Up Open-water Group Swims in the Bow Valley lakes! These group session are no cost to you, all I ask is to post your experiences on social media with photo’s of Fearless Warrior Pop-up Open water Group swims and to be committed in attending as many Sunday (5-6pm) & or Monday (6-7pm) evening session as possible, the more the merrier! How much fun would it be to swim with a group of amazing like minded swimmers, to try out different lakes within the Bow Valley, create an Open-water swim community in the Bow Valley, have fun, meet new friends, and swim with friends. Why is this called a Pop-Up Open-water swim? because every Sunday evening the location of open-water swim will be announced, all with in the Bow Valley. Please note that the Sunday evening swims will be located at Quarry Lake in Canmore every Sunday, not a pop-up swim group only Mondays. Please email me at coachsmcpherson@gmail.com if you are interested in joining the group swims and I will add you to the list and send further details.


I can’t thank you enough for your belief in me and thoughtful yet inspiring way of pushing me. The years leading into this journey were spent in a vicious cycle of self-destruction and feelings of shame. What a difference it had made spending 10 months feeling proud of myself. And what a special gift to have someone by my side who shows such enthusiasm for the sport and genuine care for those she is coaching. Thanks for always being there.
