Welcome to Melbourne OWSC

An Open Water Swim Club for all abilities,
We support learners, swimmers and experienced athletes to swim in the sea.
Based in Melbourne, at Williamstown Beach

Melbourne OWSC has supported and friendly swims each week at Williamstown Beach.

Saturday 9AM - Swim around the Yellow Poles (boating markers)

Set your own pace, distance & time in water. A boardy keeps an eye on conditions (and you) so you can relax and enjoy a comfortable swim at your pace.

Meet in carpark behind Williamstown SLSC. $10 for club members, $20 for non-members. $5 of this fee goes to inclusion programs and safety equipment.

Meet at Western end of Williamstown Beach, near the carpark behind Williamstown SLSC.

Club membership is $20 for the summer and $20 for the winter.

We are affiliated to Masters Swimming Victoria and you can join through MSV or, for open water swimming members who simply want to enjoy swimming in the sea with us:

1) Get TeamApp

2) Search for Melbourne OW Swimming Club and request to join.
