Welcome to our friendly and supportive introductions to cold open water swimming (autumn and winter 2021/2022! This is the perfect course for beginners, returners and those looking to explore the wonders of open water swimming and water sports, and aims to teach you key skills as well as offer confidence as you explore.
In-person clinic at Bewl Water includes;
After the interactive classroom session, your coach will then invite you into the water to practice cold water submersion, breathing control and relaxation techniques so you can truly enjoy your experience.
We only allow a maximum of 6 participants per course to ensure that we can fully tailor your session to your individual needs.
This course has been specially designed by head coach, Laura Ansell, and has been accredited and supported by the STA and Swim Smooth. It is the only one of its kind in the country!
Our interactive, online clinic;
Our online version of this clinic includes everything from the in-person clinic, but is delivered to you in the comfort of your own home! This is a fantastic option for those that are particularly new or nervous and would like to obtain information on clothing, mental preparation, nutrition and safety guidelines before they venture into the water. This is also a particularly good option for those that would like to explore other water sports, such as winter paddleboarding, or wild swimming away from a supported venue.
After the clinic, we will email you a copy of our written handbook to keep and you will receive an open-invite to obtain one-free winter swim with us at Bewl Water.
