Welcome to Swim2Swim. We are a family swimming business, which is run by Richard and Karen, along with a dedicated team of swimming instructors.

At Swim2Swim we provide swimming lessons for babies, toddlers, older children and adults. Our water-based swimming teachers and assistants teach beginners, improvers and advanced swimmers, either in a small group or private lessons.

We only have one lesson in the pool at any time, this creates a safe environment where the swimmers can focus on their own lesson in a calm surrounding.

All the pools have on-site parking, separate changing rooms, and viewing rooms so you can watch the lessons in comfort.

We run lessons in the Colchester area: Great Tey, near Marks Tey and Eight Ash Green, Tolleshunt Major, near Tiptree and Maldon plus Primrose Pool in Ramsey, near Harwich, Manningtree, Lawford and Tendring. In addition to providing private swimming tuition we also teach at several infant and primary schools in North Essex.

In addition to group lessons we can provide private tuition on a 1to1, 2to1 or 3to1 basis depending on your requirements. These swimming lessons can be very useful for the nervous/ less confident swimmer and equally beneficial to the advanced/club standard swimmer or triathlete who may need to work on a specific technique or skill. Our swimming teachers can also work on general fitness or rehabilitation. Britannia pool is also available for private hire and we run also run Aqua Aerobics classes.

Our Adult/Parent and child classes have one water-based teacher, the focus at this stage is building water confidence in babies and toddlers plus developing water safety skills but most of all enjoyment for both the adult and child. We will pass on swimming teaching skills to the adult/parent to practice with your baby/infant/toddler swimmer. There are many benefits of learning to swim as a baby/young toddler and you can read about some of them here

We only have one class in the pool at anytime and have a ratio of one waterbased instructor to four swimmers

Lovely post from Aqua Sensory and a little reminder for all of us.

I heard a couple of lovely examples this morning ...

A daddy said to his little boy .. "Wow that was a great swim, didn't we have fun"

Mummy to her nervous little one ... "let's try together, I will be right beside you"

Karen x“The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice” Peggy O’Mara.

Children are proficient at reading between the lines of what we are saying, how we say it and even feeling into what we are ‘not’ saying.

In the pool let’s pay particular attention to the words we use and practice softening and slowing down our voices to meet our children where they are at.

An important skill we can offer to young children not only in the pool, is an emotional understanding. This is a vital life skill that will aid children through life, to help them recognise what is going on and how they are feeling. Wherever possible let them explain to you how they are feeling, the sensations they can feel from the inside.

💧 I love your smiles, you look so happy in the water, I love swimming with you!
💧 You are looking a bit unsure, it's ok I am here to keep you safe.
💧 Are you not enjoying back floating right now? That’s ok, let's slow down, I’ll sit you up, what can you see?

This can help our children feel listened to, and to feel that their needs are being met.

What are you favourite phrases in the pool to offer comfort, encouragement and support?
