Bellywhackers Open Water Swimming Collective offers a safe and inclusive environment for participants at all levels to swim together, improve physical and mental health, meet new friends, share knowledge and be inspired by the many opportunities open water swimming offers. We respect all ocean lovers and unite swimming clubs, associations, community groups and businesses.
We enable swimmers to establish safe swim pods and support networks, which help strengthen and grow our wonderful sport. We will support and establish your growth as a swimmer and mentor, providing you with the skills to encourage and develop other swimmers.
Bellywackers provides coaching and support crew services for your upcoming swimming events, either within Australia or internationally. Our crew are experienced swimmers, specialising in racing, mid and long-distance swimming. We provide expertise in stroke correction, competitive technique, fitness, open water education, overcoming fear, swimming education for people with a disability, rehabilitation, working with both adults and children, and mentoring. We ensure all our crew hold current coaching certificates and qualifications in CPR, first aid and lifesaving.
Coaching can be designed to suit the individual, offering a selection of individual coaching, small groups, squads, master classes and specific skill training held in either pools or open water.
