1:1 Open Water Swimming Coaching

Our personal open water sessions will help you feel more confident getting your face in the water and dealing with this new environment. You'll learn how to sight properly and swim in a straight line. You'll improve your technique while your coach paddles next to you in a kayak. You'll be taught how to prevent zig zagging in your races, which can sometimes add 10-20% to your total swimming distance! These sessions are highly recommended and book up weeks in advance. Suitable for beginners, intermediates and advanced swimmers looking for the edge over your competitors. We've helped literally thousands of swimmers improve their open water swimming over the past 15 years, there's always a way to get faster!

Sessions are held at the Oxford Wakeboard & Ski Centre (Queenford Lakes) in Oxford, at the Bicester Hotel Performance Centre or the River Thames.
