 Our Instructors

Swim2u Instructors

Swim2u instructors are fully qualified A.S.A. (Amateur Swimming Association) teachers and R.L.S.S. (Royal Life Saving Society) Lifeguards. In addition they are all C.R.B. (Criminal Records Bureau) checked and fully insured members of the I.o.S. (Institute of Swimming). 

Many of our instructors are ex-competitive swimmers that have also specialised in water-based instruction. 

Our instructors use practical demonstrations to motivate children, whilst providing a caring, considerate environment.  They are committed to helping pupils learn and develop by using an enthusiastic and modern approach that makes learning fun.

 

I believe that our instructors are able to provide some of the best instruction in the area, that's why they have been handpicked as part of the Swim2u team.
