open water 
swim training


Sufficient experience, good swimming technique, endurance and safety play important roles in open water swim training. When preparing for a lake crossing or for a first triathlon, professionally guided open water training is a must. 

Open Water introduction swimming course

Would you like to swim in open water, but don't know exactly what to look for? Many people have the necessary swimming skills, but don't dare to go out in the open water. If this is also the case for you, then take your first steps into the open water with us!


This swim course is suitable for triathletes and swimmers who already know how to crawl well, but do not yet have any open water experience. In this swim course you will learn how to put on a wetsuit, what to consider when breathing in open water and how to orientate yourself in open water. The course takes place in small groups so that an optimal learning process can be ensured.
