“I don’t think there’s anything better than swimming outdoors…
when the sun is either rising or settling down for the night…
the reflection of natural light makes me one with the water.”

OSM’s outdoor program always fills up fast. Stay tuned for updates on the 2019 season.

Our exclusive Summer program is designed for enthusiastic novice lap swimmers through to elite Triathlete and Masters swimmers. With access to a 25-metre outdoor pool we will offer a program for all levels. 

And, look forward to our Fun Friday practice where we think outside of the swim practice box doing fun sets and team challenges!


  1. Must be able to swim 1800 metres in an hour (fast lane will do 2800-3000 metres). A set of 5 x 100m front crawl repeat times will be approximately 1:40, 1:50, 2:00-2:30 in one of the lanes.
  2. Must be able to swim and kick front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke (expect 75% front crawl and 25% choice) as well as a willingness to do butterfly. This is not a front crawl only program.
  3. Must choose particular practice days and session times

Join our enthusiastic members in a friendly environment…in the great outdoors!
