Swim for a mile Logo


Swim for a mile is currently under construction!

Swim For a Mile takes place annually from January to May, with registrations opening the December prior. The programme’s Official Charity Partner is Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

Swim Ireland coaches have written a 12-week swimming programme, that will enable those who can swim a little, to swim a mile. You can choose to follow the programme on your own or join one of our SFAM training groups at a participating pool near you.

For those looking to set a definite target for themselves, swimmers can opt to complete their mile in an official Swim For A Mile challenge event in April or May, where their swim will be timed, and they will receive a Swim For A Mile pack. What’s more, those who register for an event with us will also receive access to free, expert-led technique clinics from former International and Olympic swimmers at designated SFAM pools.

Everyone will also receive training tips, video demonstrations and online support throughout the 12 weeks via our website’s news section, as well as our Facebook and Twitter pages.

See you soon!
