Learn to Ocean Swim

Can Too NSW Training Programs

Learn to ocean swim and help beat cancer.

Ever stood on the beach, not sure if you can face the waves, or where to even begin?

Well, you're not alone. And when you learn to ocean swim, you won't be ever again.

Since 2005 we've been building a community of everyday people, giving them the education and the experience they need to achieve what once felt like an impossible goal: become ocean swimmers.

And we do it all for a good cause, funding Australia's brightest young cancer researchers so they can find better ways to beat cancer.

Face your fears in a safe, fun environment.

Qualified, experienced ocean swim coaches teach you how to read ocean conditions, safely navigate them, and then use them to your advantage.

Water safety crew support you in the water during every ocean session. They're from the surf clubs local to your beach, know the local conditions, and are there to keep you safe.

Team Captains and Mentors are past ocean swim graduates, chosen because they're encouraging and supportive, to keep the team spirit alive throughout summer.

They're all here to help you learn to ocean swim, so you can help those affected by cancer.
