Welcome to the International Application! If you are applying for swims in Italy or any of our big challenges, this is the form you should be using.

This is a long form, so at any time you can save your progress - you can also email yourself a link to continue later. The application is also broken down into seven sections, and supplemental documents can be uploaded at the end. PDF, JPEG, PNG formats are accepted. PDF is preferable.

Thanks and we'll see you in the water!

By clicking submit, you hereby certify that you have read and agree to Water World Swim LLC's terms and conditions and the notes on confidentiality & minors in the fold out below.

This is a confidential application required by Water World Swim, LLC, and by the local authorities where the applicable swim(s) will take place.

After being reviewed and approved by a WWS coaching team, it will be submitted to the authorities of the country where the swim(s) will take place.

After the reviewing and final approval, those authorities will approve also the necessary support to the swim(s).

Water World Swim, LLC is committed to being a leader in internet and information privacy. As such, we will not share any personally identifying information with any third party outside of applicable authorities for which this application is intended. We may use some information for internal statistical analysis, but never anything personally identifiable.

If the swimmer applying to any of these swims is a minor under 18 years old, all documentation must be accompanied by a letter from a parent or guardian authorizing their child to swim in dangerous, high risk waters and acknowledging their risks. Parents must include with this application a photocopy of valid government-issued ID for the minor, a letter of recommendation by a Certified Coach with a valid and recognized swimming association license, and hospital or medical insurance.

An authorized family or relative must travel with the minor. If a coach or coaches are authorized to travel with the minor they must carry written legal authorization signed by the parents and a signed Non-Fault Harmless Waiver at all times.

The following documents may be required of you. These documents do not need to be submitted at the same time as your application, but if you have them available, you can submit them on the last page of this application. Minors (swimmers under the age of 18) require additional documentation which is highlighted in red.
