Laying on the beach sipping cocktails doesn’t sound like a good vacation plan? We have something for you! Join us for an intensive one-week Open Water Safety Camp! This is your chance to get introduced to the open water in a safe way together with our coaches and to fall in love with it forever.
There will be two batches this summer: 27/07 — 1/08, and 10/08—15/08.
As we love goal setting, we offer our students to finish their training with Open-Water swimming races: on the 1st of August — Husarö Runt 2020 (1800 m) or on the 15th of August — Riddarfjärdsimning (1600 m). For beginners there is also a possibility to swim their first oficial 200 m in open water during Riddarfjärdsimning, which is the Swedish test of swimming ability. However, this is of course not a requirement! You go at your own pace!
This Camp is for you if:
- you are just starting your path in the open water
- you would like to improve your crawl technique
- you would like to swim an open water race
- you want to learn how to swim safely in the open water
- you want to challenge yourself
We will go through the basics of behavior in the open water in Sweden and starting from the shore exercises, eventually venture on short swims. We will improve on our breaststroke technique — the most important swimming stoke for your safety in the water. But also get to try some crawl basics. Depending on your swimming ability and level the coaches will adjust swimming technique exercises.
The regular price for the camp is 2250 SEK. An early-bird discount for the first 6 persons who buy the course is 1700 SEK. Early bird tickets are available until the 1st of June.
- 7.5 hours in the Open Water with a coach
- goodie bag from Stockholm International Swimming Club with swimming essentials
- team spirit and support at your first Open Water Swimming race
- picnic lunch after the race
We meet every afternoon at Brunnsbikens strandbad — the beach just across the shore from Haga Health Club where some of our classes take place. We swim in any weather, getting used to the Swedish summer can be tough but rewarding! Depending on your current level and ambition we will adapt the program to your needs, but everyone will for sure get more friendly and confident swimming in natural water.
