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.

Samantha Guthrie, Ocean Swimmer & Cancer Survivor

You don’t have to be fit, you don’t have to be fast, and you certainly don’t have to be brave — I wasn’t! And if it helps create a world where no one needs to get cancer like I did, then that’s worth it, don’t you think?

Train With Purpose

... for a cancer-free future.

Lyndal Keith, Can Too Participant

Cancer took my aunty while she was surrounded by us all, my newborn Heidi tucked gently into her arms where we knew she would have spent so much more time if it weren’t for cancer robbing them both of that joy. Aunty Ree told me it’s important not to be angry about her cancer but to be brave. I promised her that I would make a difference, I knew I had to join Can Too.
