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.

Founder: Ram Barkai

International Ice Swimming Association shared a video from the playlist Beat Yesterday.3 weeks ago
"Per chi nuota in acque gelide il freddo non è la sensazione peggiore". Inizia così il #BeatYesterday di Paolo Chiarino. Ci sono limiti più estremi di altri, oltre i quali in pochi penserebbero di spingersi, come nuotare in acque gelide, sotto lo zero. Ma, in fondo, anche questo è lo spirito Beat Yesterday. E Paolo lo incarna alla perfezione.

The ICE has a lot of interesting benefits to our body and our mind.
It's good to see research on the benefits of what we are doing.
Would be great to see more research, this is just the tip of the ICEBERG.
