Sydney 1km Ocean Swim 2019 is an entry-level group training program that takes community-minded people with some swimming ability and coaches them to confidently complete a 1km ocean swim.

Twice per week you'll learn from qualified and experienced ocean swimming coaches. For additional peace of mind all ocean training sessions are supported by water safety crew, staffed from the local surf clubs who are familiar with conditions at your beach, close by in the water to lend a hand whenever needed.

Pool swim sessions mid-week focus on:

  • Refreshing swim skills
  • Building base swimming fitness
  • Learning how to swim more efficiently
  • Practicing basic ocean swimming techniques
  • Drills for stroke correction

Ocean swim sessions on Saturday mornings focus on:

  • Identifying changing ocean conditions – waves, rips, tides, sand banks, etc
  • Learning to enter and exit the water safely
  • Increasing your swim distance in the ocean under supervision
  • Learning advanced surf skills and using the ocean to your advantage

You’ll receive a training program to follow at home outside of coached sessions – increasing your strength, agility, and stamina so you can be your best on race day.

There will be no coached training sessions from 22 Dec 2018  4 Jan 2019 (inclusive)

Sydney Ocean Swim

About Your Ocean Swim Goal.

The 1km ocean swim program has two options for your goal event.

2019 URM (Little) Big Swim

  • 1km Ocean Swim
  • Palm Beach, NSW
  • Sunday 27 January 2019

2019 North Bondi Classic

  • 1km Ocean Swim
  • Bondi Beach, NSW
  • Sunday 10 February 2019

You can participate in one swim – or both! It’s totally up to you. Can Too will have a huge presence at both of these events, including support from coaches, your team captains and mentors, and the office staff who swim with the Can Too team on race day.

It’s your responsibility to enter your chosen race, at your own expense. Registration into the Can Too training program helps cover some of the cost of merchandise, pool fees, water safety and coaching. It doesn’t include entry into, travel to, or any other costs associated with participating in your chosen goal event race day.

We also have a 2km+ ocean swim training program available.
