Here at USwim we have a dedicated, friendly, qualified and experienced team with a diverse array of watersport backgrounds; from teaching at all levels from beginners to competitive club swimming and coaching, to lifeguarding water safety skills and wider open water based sports.  We specialise in ensuring correct techniques are taught from the very start and building blocks are built upon in a fun and positive way, using a variety of and varied and creative lessons and equipment.

Each teacher and assistant is trained and qualified by Swim England and undertakes regular and consistent training to remain up to date and relevant with all swim developments.  There are always fully qualified life guards at lessons.

Why choose USwim?

USwim prides itself on helping swimmers develop excellent swimming technique, water confidence and knowledge. We create the competency building blocks to ensure solid foundations are built and abilities exist before progressing to the next level, making the best swimmers.

Integrity & Quality

Each stage of the USwim program has specific and clear developmental and detailed skills aims.  We create competency building blocks to ensure solid foundations and abilities exist before progressing to the next level.  This approach ensures each child can move confidently up through the stages ready to expand their swim knowledge and ability whilst feeling confident amongst their swim peers.

USwim is both ability based as well as age sensitive so whilst adults and teens will not be in the same classes as foundation age children, you may, for example, see an array of primary ages in a class together.  Individuals will all have a swim assessment as part of their introduction to USwim to ensure they are in the right class and individuals will move through stages as and when they have mastered the competencies in the level they are at; trust us – we are the experts!

USwim prides itself on integrity and quality.  Whilst other swim schools may rush learners through their stages to make space at the starter levels, USwim learners will be treated as the individuals they are and will each be masters of their own water levels; progressing through to the top levels will see learners ready to move to club/competitive level should they wish or even diversify to things like Life Saving and Swim Teaching – maybe they’ll be the next generation of USwim Teachers and Assistants!
