Welcome to the International Ice Swimming Association (IISA)


The International Ice Swimming Association (IISA) was formed in 2009 with a vision to formalise swimming in icy water. IISA passion is swimming in icy waters in every location possible around our globe. In order to allow for that IISA has put in place a well considered set of rules to allow for maximum safety measures in this extreme sport and to regulate swim integrity in terms of distance, time, conditions and safety.

IISA introduced the Ice Mile as its ultimate achievement of swimming in ice waters. An Ice Mile is One Mile in water of 5C or less. The swim must be unassisted and with one pair of goggles, cap and standard swimming costume. The Ice Mile is the ultimate personal challenge that should be followed with all the safety and controls in place.

In 2014 IISA introduced the 1km Ice event. The event allows swimmers to compete in icy waters of 5C or less under IISA rules for 1000m. IISA is set out to keep world records with its vision to include Swimming as a category in the Winter Olympic Games and make it globally recognised sport.

IISA World Cup Series Stage 0ne in Veitsbronn, Germany

World Records broken, and 1st World Cup Series ranking

Europe was faced with a hot summer in 2018 that kept and still keeping water temperatures in western Europe above 5C, to the frustration of Dutch, Great Britain and Ireland who, regardless, swam in water temp slightly above 5C, and swam well!.
However, that heat wave skipped Veitsbronn who experienced water temp of 1.4C and air temp of 2C.
The event was a great show of frozen swimmers’ performance and professionalism by organizers. A big well done to Christof Wandi who, relentlessly, pushing Ice Swimming as swimmer and as organizer. It was a great success. Thank you as well to our loyal sponsor Aqua Sphere Germany.
In the frozen pool competition was as hot!
A young German swimmer Alisa Fatum came and smashed the Women World Record and for the first time broke the 13 minutes barrier. Alisa swam 1000m at 12:48:70 minutes.
Well done to Alisa and welcome to a new world record holder!
Alisa also came first overall with 20 men swimmers and 22 women swimmers!
Well done to young Sven Elffrerich from The Netherland first in the man category in 1000m.
