ready for your comeback?

"Until the river sessions started, waking up to go and swim on my own was a bit “meh”, now I am actually waking up pumped and excited! Everybody I talked to think I am a lunatic “what?? You are excited about swimming early morning... in the river?!!” But my answer is always the same “it’s THE best, give it a go and you’ll understand!!”"

Come and join us for 9 weekly sessions down at the beautiful Freshwater Bay, Peppermint Grove whilst we wait for the Claremont Pool to re-open following the COVID-19 pandemic.

This session is a great mix of open water skills (i.e. 
drafting, sighting, turning), dealing with the anxieties of swimming in the open water, challenging aerobically, fun and friendly in a safe environment. The session is run by a team of expert coaches each morning and is a great way to start your own COVID-19 Comeback from isolation!
