If you are taking this course, the allure of open water swimming has captured your attention. For some of us, this attraction to the open water started at an early age; for others, the bug was caught later in life.
Wherever you are, whatever your age, whenever you started or whoever you coach, this course intends to share with you a comprehensive array of open water swimming information that will benefit you and your athletes.
Our sport – like the waters we train and compete in – is ever-changing and this course and our collective body of knowledge will also expand and adapt as the sport develops.
Open water swimming means different things to different people – freedom to pit yourself against the elements, a challenge of mind and body, a change from chlorinated pools, a means to become fit.
