About Us

swim2swim | Colchester | Learn to Swim

Richard Sullivan established Swim2Swim to promote the importance of learning to swim and water confidence as a life skill, which enables people not only to enjoy and participate in physical activities such as swimming, water sports and other outdoor adventurous activities, but more importantly to save their own lives. Research has shown there are many other benefits of learning to swim at a young age.

Richards’s passion for swimming began at an early age and his swimming skills and ability continued to develop through his youth and into adult hood competing at a high level both in swimming and water polo.

Learn to swim in a safe, supportive environment

At swim2swim we believe that learning to swim needs to be both enjoyable and fun. This is achieved by creating a safe and supportive environment. Through guided learning, positive feedback and constant encouragement this increases the desire to learn to swim, an ethos that is shared by all within the Company.

We also believe that exposing babies to water early is to be encouraged. Contact with water encourages the desire to swim and reduces the chances of a child developing a fear of water.

Continuity really helps therefore we run swimming lessons 50 weeks of the year

We run swimming terms throughout the year and each term is 12 or 13 weeks long and lessons continue through the school and bank holidays. We have a 2 week break over Christmas when there are no lessons.
