WINTER CLUB Open Water Swimming
at Ocean Walker Crystal Lake!
What is the WINTER CLUB at Ocean Walker Academy?
Ocean Walker Academy are launching their WINTER CLUB, so that open water swimming enthusiasts may continue to swim outdoors as the temperatures drop in our purpose built open water swimming lake, designed with swimmers safety in mind by owner - RLSS open water swimming safety ambassador and record breaking open water swimmer Adam Walker and lifeguarded by a qualified RLSS open water lifeguard.
Regular Sunday morning swim sessions starting from November - WINTER CLUB members will be able to come and enjoy a swim in Crystal Lake, followed by exclusive access to our luxury Wellbeing Barn to warm up afterward with a hot drink* and slice of homemade cake*.
Free car parking
Luxury indoor heated space with sofas and seating
Open water swimming is an extreme sport even in warm weather, so you are required to have attended an Ocean Walker Academy Induction Course to be able to participate in these swim sessions - please find out more below.
*hot drinks/cakes/refreshments to be purchased onsite (you cannot bring your own).
WINTER CLUB INDUCTION COURSE
STEP 1. Book onto this course
You must attend this course to be able to attend our Winter Club. Even if you are an experienced cold water swimmer - we still need to see you in action prior to turning up and swimming. It is important that we know what level everyone is at, to ensure your safety during your time at our lake.
Confident pool swimmers are welcome.
The course is 1hr 30mins total, and is part theory, part swim.
You will learn about what to expect from cold water immersion, how to enter and exit the water safely, how to recover and what equipment you will require.
You will be shown the course and be advised of all facilities available to you and how the sessions will run.
