My services are tailored to the individual’s situation and experience, and while no open water experience is required, being able to swim at least 400 meters in a pool nonstop for health and safety reasons is required. All that being said, there are some common categories of coaching that you may find yourself as areas of focus.

Everyone has different goals and abilities, so whether you are looking to improve your general fitness, own well-being, join the social side of open water swimming, swim in mass events or charity swims all the way through to the channel itself, it is bespoke to you, your ability and your goals.

Cancellation Policy

Booking Terms and Conditions

Open water coaching is subject to the weather and the changing elements, therefore changes might be made in the lead-up, on the day and evening during the session due to the swimmer’s and coach’s safety. Changes will have as minimal impact as possible and we will inform you as soon as possible in the event of such changes.

Failure to attend a pre-booked swim session will result in the charge of the full session amount.

Cancellations of pre-booked swim sessions must be via email at least 24 hours in advance of the session start time. Where possible an alternative session will be transferred onto a future available slot.

For group and squad sessions should there be a lack of demand, there is a minimum number requirement per session. If this is not met, we have the right to cancel however, this will be communicated at least 24 hours before training start time and you would then receive a full refund.

Should any session have to be canceled due to COVID-19 a full refund is available and can also be transferred to another available slot.
