From learners to masters and competitive age group swimmers vying for national times. Open water swimming is a fast growing sport and we are proud to be part of providing responsible and professional open water swim coaching.

9AM OW Skills Group

This is our most popular group.

Perfect for tri-athletes, masters swimmers and pool swimmers transitioning to the open water. Here is a video of the Open Water Skills Group.



Each week we do drills and exercises that reinforce the basic skill components of an efficient open water freestyle. That’s a high ‘buoyant’ body position with relaxed breathing, effective kicking and powerful stroking, swimming straight, sighting effectively and drafting as much as possible.

You will swim about 2km in this group and complete our 700m open water swim training course.

Stroke correction, 1 on 1 and small group classes

Yes, you can improve your swimming quickly, but you can’t do it alone. You need a coach to set you a professional training program and ensure your technique is efficient.

I have taught many adult learn-to-swimmers, competitive masters swimmers and tri-athletes. Just a few classes can improve your open water swimming significantly.
