Open Water/ Sea Swimming for Kids

OPEN WATER SWIMMING FOR KIDS
Swimming lessons in open water are a great way to keep kids active and teach them important skills. Your children deserve the highest level of health and wellness, including learning how to swim. Our Open water swimming lessons will give them the knowledge and skills they need for an amazing life.

We'll be back with our Open Water Events in Spring 2022. Join us in the pool over the winter!

Our Open Water Swim Clinics for Kids will return shortly! Be the first to know about upcoming events by signing up for our Newsletter below.

We are delighted to announce that we will be running open water clinic for youth swimmers. The swimmers will be split in age groups. 

Our swim clinics and camps will be structured to include swimmers of the same age and skill level.  Our ratio swimmer to coach ratio is kept low to enable us to give each swimmer in attendance the time and attention they need during each session.

We are focussing on technique and training advice for open water swimmers, triathletes and competitive swimmers with a holistic approach to maximise the swimmer’s mental, technical and physical strengths. Our positive coaching style and instant feedback will bring you to the next level and help to achieve your swimming goals.
