Our mission is to provide coaching, workshops, and retreats that cater to swimmers of all skill levels, ages, shapes, and sizes.
Whether you’re a beginner looking to gain the knowledge to safely swim outside, a seasoned swimmer wanting to improve your technique or an experienced swimmer wanting to train for a triathlon or a specific swimming event, we have something for you.
The Outdoor Swimming Company was started by Caroline Saxon who has a well-established swimming CV.
Our team of experienced coaches are passionate about helping you become a confident, skilled swimmer in natural bodies of water, all year round.
As outdoor swimmers ourselves, we believe that the experience of outdoor swimming is about feeling free and fully immersed in nature.
We encourage all swimmers to try swimming without a wetsuit at least once, but we also respect and support individual preferences, especially if your event requires a wetsuit. We want you to feel comfortable swimming outdoors.
Our coaching, workshops and retreats cater for everyone, whatever type, and shape of swimmer you are.
At The Outdoor Swimming Company, we believe that outdoor swimming is all about community.
Our founder, Caroline Saxon, has almost two decades of experience in competitive outdoor swimming, over a decade experience teaching, and one-to-one coaching.
She founded The Outdoor Swimming Company to offer a safe and enjoyable way for others to experience the joy of swimming outdoors through group and private coaching, workshops, and retreats.
Over the years, swimmers who have trained with Caroline have not only become friends, but have also joined her as coaches, leading to the growth of our team. We offer one-to-one or small group coaching to help you achieve your personal goals and targets.
Our team has the expertise to coach swimmers of all levels and in all seasons because we have all been there ourselves. We know first-hand what it feels like to be in the water, which we believe is crucial for effective coaching.
For us, swimming is about feeling free and connected to nature. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a curious beginner, we welcome you to join us in the water and experience the freedom of outdoor swimming.
Join us for a session to find the joy in outdoor swimming and to achieve your swimming goals.
