Open Water Swimming

We are excited to be running open water swimming training opportunities in Ottawa this summer again. This will be the club’s second summer participating in open water swimming. Capital Wave believes that maintaining our athletes’ fitness levels and swimming conditioning is essential and open water swimming does all that as well as providing an experience like no other! The season starts in June and ends in late August.

The swims start around 2 KMs at the start of the season and build to 7 – 8 KMs. The majority of the swimming is in the Ottawa River. Members are invited by the head coach.

There will be three (or more) scheduled swims per week.  Due to conditions and precautions (see below), it’s not always possible to take advantage of all of the scheduled swims.

For more information, please contact Coach Rodrigo here.
