About this program

This is a 12 week entry-level group training program that teaches the basics of ocean swimming in preparation for a selection of official swim events.

It's for people with some swimming ability who are looking to face their fears in a safe, supportive environment.

After 12 weeks training you will be able to:

  • Complete a 1km ocean swim event
  • Safely navigate the surf zone
  • Confidently swim in a group setting
  • Use the ocean to your advantage
  • Say "I am an ocean swimmer!"

All ocean training sessions are supported by water safety crew from surf clubs local to our training beaches, familiar with local conditions, close by at all times.

As a registered Australian charity, all our programs fundraise for cancer research — it's an important part of why we do what we do.

  • 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, and more
  • 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

Due to the holiday break, there will be no coached training sessions from 23 Dec 2019 – 5 Jan 2020 (inclusive).

Help fund lifesaving cancer research

... common fundraising questions.

Do I have to fundraise?

Yes, you have to fundraise in return for learning to trail run. Don’t let that worry you too much, we’ve been doing this since 2005 so we have plenty of resources available to help you achieve your fundraising goal. Plus, you’ll have a Team Captain and Mentor/s to guide you through. The best approach is to have a plan and to start early.

Where does the money go?

When you fundraise for the Can Too Foundation, you're fundraising for Australian cancer research and prevention. We focus on investing in early career cancer researchers across all cancer types.

For every dollar we receive:

  • 65% goes to cancer research
  • 22% goes to cancer prevention
  • 13% goes to general admin.

What if I don't meet my commitment?

Can Too has been teaching people to run and raise funds for cancer research for fifteen years. We know that if you put your mind to it and work hard you CAN TOO help fund Australia's most promising cancer research projects. You have until 30 days after your goal race to meet your commitment, and we continue working with you until options are exhausted.

How long do I have to fundraise?

The good news is that you have until 30 days after your program finishes to meet your commitment to cancer research and prevention. You'll have an active fundraising page from the moment you sign up, so our suggestion is sign up early!
