ADVENTURE. /. DISCOVER. /. ENJOY
Would you like to step up your ocean swimming distance?
You may have a bit of swimming experience behind you but you’re looking for a challenge with some structure and support for your training to reach a goal.
Step up a level and train for a 2.5-3km Manly - Queenscliff return ocean swim distance with this 4-week training program designed to build you up and help guide you through the training with the goal of finishing this 3km swim.
This program takes your swim training to the next level by increasing session volume and intensity, including a focus on more advanced drills and techniques you can use to practise in the pool in your own time.
The pool training sessions build up from medium to high-volume and include swim drills each week to help you develop a stroke that is efficient in both the pool and the open water environment.
The in water tuition of the course will focus on ocean swimming techniques/ stroke, how to swim in waves, catch a wave in, reading the ocean, understanding where is safe to swim and how to tackle the surf.
Join a small group of like minded swimmers, along with coach Linda Goodwin and be in a supportive and fun learning environment. As part of a group of 4 swimmers training together and taking on this challenge as a team you can support, motivate and encourage each other's journey.
