The Allure of Open Water Swimming

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.
