Prepare for your Open Water Swim Season!
Sports have always pushed the limits of the human body. Ever since they were introduced, we have pushed to reach greater heights, run faster, jump higher.
Endurance sports push this even further, combining sports already designed to push the body, and making it go even further. These events test the mettle of even the most hardened athletes, and are regarded as some of the toughest events to complete.
Ocean swimming isn’t something you can just start on the go; no matter your ability. Being able to swim kilometres in the pool may not translate to the same distance in open water. The ocean is an environment of its own with no constraints or built in safety measures. You need to be smart and effective swimmer if you want to excel in these conditions.
Our Open Water Training program has two distinct groups with a clear focus in both groups. Our beginner group is geared towards swimmers wanting to gain confidence and build their skills in the open water landscape.
Our Advanced group is focusing on open water swimmers who want to improve their skills and technique for event conditions.
