All winter swimming is at your own risk. lf you have heart problems or any serious health issues, consult your physician.
How to register:
This event is for members only. If you’ve already paid for a course or Ice Safety Workshop in 2021, then you’re already a member of our club since the membership fee is included in the price of our swimming lessons.
If you’re a member, just contact us and we’ll register you for the workshop.
If you’re not a member yet, just buy a membership here and let us know in the notes that you’d like to join us at the winter swimming workshop.
Don’t miss your chance – there are only 6 spots available!
What you’ll need:
Wear a regular winter hat, gloves, socks and wetsuit or bathing suit (or try swimming with both). Neoprene socks and gloves are optional but make a huge difference by keeping hands and feet warm. You’ll also need a towel to stand on, towel for drying off, changing robe (optional) and lots of warm clothes to put on afterwards (silk or wool long johns, sweatpants, etc.).
What to expect:
An exciting experience! This isn’t a swimming lesson per se, but more of an experience – the chance to feel the thrill of immersing your body in cold water. In a bathing suit, you can expect to be in the water for a few seconds or so. In a wetsuit, you can probably stay in longer. The dock has a ladder and the water is shallow, so you’ll be able to stand if needed.
We’ll cover the basics of winter swimming and safety in cold water. Then everyone will have a chance to take a dip or two.
We follow FHM guidelines and this outdoor event is Covid-19 friendly (limited to 6 participants and 2 coaches). We hope the only thing you catch is a love of winter swimming!
Best of all, cake and tea/coffee will be served!
