South West Swim offer a complete range of services in Open Water.  Our hugely popular and highly rated Introduction to Open Water & Triathlon Swimming Clinics are a great place for the new open water swimmer to start, teaching all the skills needed for safety and event participation, or just to get in and enjoy your Open Water swim.

We also offer Individual 1-2-1 coaching to work on technical swim skills, confidence in the water, open water skills or to give the athlete a great individual session in the build up to their key events.

Our Squad Sessions start form beginner (in open water) through to our advanced squads for those faster swimmers.  These sessions are productive and fun and help build your confidence, speed, pacing and stamina, not to mention your open water specific skills.

We have coached swimmers taking part in their first 200m triathlon swim through to those swimming the english channel or Ironman events.  We are proud to have worked with Open Water Swimmers and Triathletes who have qualified to National, European and World championships in their respective disciplines.
