Training for your first ocean swim is a pretty scary prospect to most. With the right training, experience, and support — training for an ocean swim while fundraising for cancer research could also be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.
Like all of our programs, the Sydney Ocean Swim is focussed on creating a safe, supportive environment for you to face a challenge you never thought possible.
All ocean training sessions are conducted by a group of qualified swim coaches, supported by certified water safety crew from the local surf clubs, along with each group having a dedicated team captain and a mentor to support your fundraising journey.
This summer, face your fears and give hope to those affected by cancer. Join the team raising $500,000 for Aussie cancer research.
