Coaching / Lessons

For anyone who wishes to take their first dip in the sea, increase their sea swimming confidence, or improve their stroke either for fitness or a specific event with an STA qualified Open Water Swimming Coach. We offer: Acclimatisation / Introduction to Sea Swimming – Build your confidence in the sea – Swimming Technique and Coaching – Improving your technique and fitness.
These sessions are always designed for enjoyment! Swimming should be fun and we aim for you to leave with a smile 😊 Have a scroll through the options below BUT please be aware that we are more than happy to arrange a time to suit your needs – let’s face it, going to the beach for an extra session is not a burden!
It can be a little daunting baring (almost) all with people you don’t know so this is an opportunity for you to join us in a very relaxed atmosphere, with or without your cossies and begin to understand that actually, no-one cares what you look like  We bring some of our kit, sit on the beach, chat and answer questions. So whether you fancy becoming an Olympic swimmer, would like to improve your stroke or simply fancy dipping, pop along with a flask of something hot – the only compulsory aspect of these sessions is to relax!
To book any of these lessons (£25 per person) please send an email to contact@swimthewight.org.uk or call 07833 348186. Please also note that if you are on a low income or have a long-term health condition then we will subsidise the lesson cost.

Acclimatisation / Intro to Sea Swimming

Swimming in the sea is very different to swimming in a lido, lake or river. Let us take you through the basics, answer any questions you may have about sea swimming and set you off on your sea swimming journey with confidence.
Learn about sea safety including the effects of cold water on your body, sharing the sea with other users, tides and currents, effects of wind direction, obstacles in the water, marine life, beach profiles and local information. £25
