New to outdoor swimming?

Would you like to transition from pool swimmer to outdoor swimmer?

Want to regain confidence, or refresh your skills?

Then this is the course for you.

The session aims to introduce swimmers with a bit or no experience of swimming outside and give you confidence to swim outdoors. I believe that swimming outside is all about community; this session is a perfect opportunity to meet like-minded beginners and start to develop your Swim Tribe.

The course is 55 minutes and covers:

  • Welcome and safety briefing
  • Education pointers
  • Water entry
  • Acclimatisation
  • Basic open water skills
  • In water safety
  • Debrief


Please note wetsuit hire is not included.

Wetsuits are optional and I encourage swimmers to try the course without one.

If you swim without a wetsuit, a tow float is mandatory and you have the option to purchase a Swim Secure tow donut as part of your booking.

The course price also includes a swimming hat.

This course is for over 18s only. If you have a child who is interested in swimming outside, please contact me.

Cost: £30-£40 per person
