Open Water Coaching Courses


SYS now run an Open Water Coaches course, and an Open Water Rescue course.

Working with the Swimming Teaching Association, SYS has written and developed training courses that will support open water swimming and those that want to coach in that environment.  

SYS is an accredited STA training centre, and all our coaches are trained to at least level 2 in open water swim coaching.

If YOU would like to become an open water coach, or develop and hone your skills then why not join us on our next course?



Our STA Level 2 Coaching Award course in April is now FULL, to register your interest in our next course please send an email to
