OCEAN SWIM SCHOOL

MOCEAN

Our most class for pure enjoyment

MOCEAN ocean fitness sessions are all about the motion in the ocean! They’re for ocean swimmers who want to enjoy a nice relaxing ocean swim.

There’s never any pressure to get your heart-rate up (although you’ll still get plenty of fitness benefits) and the focus is purely on fun and enjoyment.

Sessions will be guided by what participants would like to do, and could include anything from a long casual swim to a body surfing session.

Bring a friend and have a laugh while getting fit – then treat yourself after with a coffee.

FAQ

We have two blocks during the season.

An 8-week block in the lead up to Christmas, and then a 6-week block after New Years. These block lengths coincide with the morning light we have available before work.

Participants are required to sign up for a whole block of 6/8 classes upfront. There is no concession for classes missed during a block due to our extremely small class sizes (1:6).

During some seasons, depending on weather, we may run a pre-season and/or post-season blocks. These are communicated to participants and times are managed around the sunlight hours available.

For the benefit and fairness of all the other participants we are strict with the level of ability required to participate in ENERGY. We need to ensure the participants get the opportunity to push their limits without being held back by less able participants. There may be times when a class can be made up of similar, but less able, participants who because they’re all at the same level, will be able to take a small step up from VITALITY. This is decided on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Andre if you’d like to discuss your suitability. If you are interested in this class and are yet to participate in the prerequisite level 2 clinic, let your instructor know at the clinic and they will assess your suitability at the clinic.
During some seasons, if the weather is consistently nice, we may run a pre-season and/or post-season blocks. These are communicated to participants and times are managed around the sunlight hours available.
No. Participants need to sign up for a whole block of six/eight classes upfront.
Due to our extremely small class sizes (1:6), we do not have the capacity to offer make-up classes or refunds for classes missed. We will do our best to accommodate you in another class if space becomes available, but there is no guarantee and we are not obliged to. Why would you want to miss a class anyway?!

Our instructors are pro’s at managing different levels of ability within a small class, so in the first instance you will need to remain in this class until the end of the block.

If we can find a spot for you in a VITALITY class, we’ll do our best to move you.

Season runs from 1 Oct to 30 April. Some contact out of season.
