This introduction to open water swimming coaching camp is the perfect way to make the transition from pool to outdoor swimming. You will have the opportunity to discover the joys that come with taking part in a swimming adventure in the great outdoors – all under the expert guidance of our qualified swim coaches.
Based in the scenic village of Amed on Bali’s north-eastern coast, our coaches will work with you in a 25-metre pool at the Blue Earth Village, using in-depth video analysis to help you improve your swim technique and open water swimming skills. There will also be coaching in open water skills along the rugged volcanic coastline.
To make sure you thoroughly enjoy the transition from pool to the open water, our qualified swim coaches run one-to-one and group sessions. Combining these sessions with a healthy dose of encouragement, patience and, most importantly, fun, your time with us is sure to be an incredible stage in your journey to becoming a true open water swimmer.
Who is this camp for?
This camp is designed to suit swimmers who can comfortably swim at least 500m in a pool and want to make the transition to swimming open water, with a focus on swim technique, open water swim skills and endurance. Whether you are relatively new to pool swimming or have been following the black line for years, this coaching camp will provide you with the skills and reassurance that you need to make the move into the sea with confidence.
If you’ve already got some open water experience but would like to develop your technique, work on open water skills or build your endurance, you may like to consider our Open Water Development - Bali coaching camp which also runs out of Amed.
Swimmers do not require open water experience but should be capable of completing the average swim distance of 1-1½ km prior to the start of the trip. The average daily swim distance is around 2km (split over a minimum of two swims).
