The OSS is a not-for profit organisation run by committed volunteers. Please see the team page for more details on who does what. The OSS exists to promote outdoor swimming around the world, via inspiration, information and action, and (Spring 2015) currently has a community of over 24,000 swimmers worldwide, with 16,000 on our OSS Facebook group.

The OSS is free to join and funds are raised for the society's actions via the flagship event, the OSS Dart10k. We have two other key sites to visit - the Outdoor Swimming Society facebook group and, a free crowd-sourced map guide to great swims worldwide.  

If you have a general query about outdoor swimming that is not answered on our website our Facebook page is another good place to look. Email service is patchy, but volunteers reply to all emails they can manage so for all other information or enquiries please email:
