Building swimming community
- At V Aquatics Swimming Academy, we place great emphasis on building a swimming community that focuses on feeling connected to swimming as a sport and a source of personal development. In our community, members work together and share sports experiences – training, open water swimming, enriching workshops, swimming camps in the Czech Republic and abroad, and participate in swimming competitions.
- The community consists of swimmers of various levels, coaches, swimming enthusiasts and team staff. The swimming community creates a space for support, inspiration and a sense of belonging. It is a place for sharing information, experience and skills not only in swimming, but also in other areas of life.
“Swimming in a beautiful lake by the forest, in the depths of the sea or in a river with a changing landscape – all this is a unique adventure and the reason why we like to swim in open water. We connect body, soul and mind with nature and wilderness. Long distance swimming and open water is definitely what defines us.”
