Swim Ireland has launched a new membership category, entitled ‘Me and the Water’. This membership has been created for those who are not Swim Ireland club members, but love to dip their toe, swim out to the buoy and back, enjoy an early morning workout in the pool and be part of a community who have a passion for and relationship with the water.
For just €10 per 12 months, members of Me and the Water will be able to avail of many benefits, including:
- Member-only events
- Monthly prizes and giveaways
- Special edition swim hat to connect you to the tribe
- Real life stories from our tribe to inspire you in your Me And The Water journey
- Access to training plans, videos, tips and drills to help improve stroke and fitness levels
- Discounts for our events and from our partners.
What’s more, existing Swim Ireland members will also benefit from these Me and the Water initiatives.
Siobhan Kennedy, an open water swimmer, enjoys the thrill of the elements. “There’s a real buzz, it can be exhilarating to be out in the midst of the big waves,” she said.
“What draws me to the water? Well everything, it’s magic, it’s bigger than you. You walk into the water and it takes all of your problems away, you can’t think of anything when you’re there. I don’t know what I’d do if I couldn’t swim – it’s my solace, it’s my everything.”
Speaking about the Me and the Water membership, Sarah Keane, CEO of Swim Ireland, said: “We want people to share their relationship with the water and afford these people the opportunity to share their story and become part of a wider community.
“It will be about members making and building human connections and telling us their stories as to why they love to swim.
“It is about the members communicating with each other and not about Swim Ireland, we are the conduit that makes it all happen.”
