Become An Open Water Swimmer

... and help us beat cancer.

This 8 week program is designed for those ready to leave the pool but not not yet ready to take on ocean swim training.

Balmoral Beach is a sheltered location inside Sydney Harbour, which makes it a perfect training location.

As an open water swim there will be some small surface waves. You will not face big crashing waves, you won't be asked to navigate the surf zone, you won't deal with rips, or face other ocean swim conditions.

You will be supported by qualified and experienced swimming coaches. In addition, for all open water sessions at Balmoral Beach, you'll be supported by certified water safety crew.

To join this program, you must be able to swim 50m freestyle (without stopping) in a pool.

If you have questions, please contact us, we'd love to chat to you.
