Coach Jason Bryce is a current qualified AUSTSWIM Teacher and ASCTA Coach of Open Water Swimmers and insured.

Jason has been swimming, teaching and coaching for decades and has a current Working with Children Check (Vic).

Williamstown Open Water Swim Coaching’s guidance is based on tried and trusted professional swim coaching principles, and years of experience teaching and coaching adults and children.

All Coach Jason and WOW Swim Coaching activities are risk assessed and have a safety plan – usually including volunteers on kayaks and rescue boards.

You will learn to:

  1. Feel comfortable in the water,
  2. How to hold your body in an buoyant and streamlined position,
  3. A relaxed and easy breathing rhythm,
  4. Efficient kicking and
  5. Powerful stroking.

These are the basic building blocks for effective open water freestyle. You can’t have a powerful arm stroke until you have mastered numbers 1 through to 4.

That’s why we offer classes and groups for various levels of abilities and one-on-one coaching for rapid improvement with video analysis.

We don’t have a new way of swimming, just the techniques, exercises and drills that are tried, trusted and proven by peer reviewed research.¬†Years of experience means I can tell you how to improve your swimming skills and enjoy the open water.

For pool swimmers transitioning to the open water, I can tell you about adjusting your body position to get your head higher, breathing, sighting and drafting. I can teach you about swimming in the chop, the currents, the deep water and getting a good result.
