Swimming Lessons

For all abilities, our Ocean Walker coaches take you through a 5 stage process providing you with video analysis above and underwater plus reference videos of Adam Walker to help you continue your training.

Rehabilitation, Disability and Wellbeing

Water is an incredible thing, creating a low impact environment for us to exercise. For many it is also an escape and being able to swim is freedom. Adam Walker is already working with disability swimmers, and swimmers in rehabilitation.

Pool and Open Water

Here at the Ocean Walker Academy we are passionate about swimming, both indoors and outdoors. Our front crawl technique doesn't change when the environment changes, so what you learn in the pool is exactly what you would use in open water.

Coaches Training

We are very excited to announce that following a rigorous selection process we have selected our first two candidates, who are presently undertaking our Ocean Walker Coaches program.
