The Bullants Open Water Academy aims to increase the opportunities for students to train in a variety of Open Water sports including open water swimming, surf lifesaving and triathlon preparation.
The Academy trains officially in terms 1 and 4 and prepares students for open water competition with a focus on developing confidence in the open water, the development on surf awareness skills, endurance and long-distance swimming.
With several experienced and active open water swimmers on staff, and a wealth of qualified water safety personnel available, this is a fantastic opportunity for young people to be involved in an individual sport with an enthusiastic and safe team atmosphere. One of the highlights from open water academy last year included our overnight camp to Lorne where all students completed the famous pier to pub swim and enjoy surfing in a different environment.
Students interested in partaking in this Academy need to be able to meet the minimum swim requirement, with the opportunity to use the College pool facility at lunchtime to improve their technique or endurance over the cooler months.
