Why SwimStars?

Becky Adlington’s SwimStars is a learn to swim programme designed for children aged between 3 and 11 years old.


Our swimming lessons are structured initially around a 4 year journey (to mimic an Olympic cycle) which has been designed to mimic Becky’s favourite and World Record swim, the 800m Freestyle.

Becky Adlington’s SwimStars includes a teaching programme with teachers who have received training in teaching 'the Becky way' and a rewards scheme that inspires and motivates children about being the best that they can be. The programme teaches children to become competent, confident swimmers who could then easily make the step into a swimming club (or another aquatic discipline) should they wish to.

Becky Adlington’s SwimStars is also based on the structure of the Amateur Swimming Association’s (ASA) Learn to Swim Framework, which is an England wide standard, based on sound swimming practices. It also has an exciting award scheme with badges and certificates for children to collect as they progress.


Why Becky Adlington’s SwimStars is different to other Swim Schools:

  • The programme is written by Britain’s most successful swimmer, Becky Adlington
  • There are motivational rewards throughout the programme to teach children important values and behaviours in being the best they can be, such as being a good friend, being respectful, and being determined, and provide a real opportunity for you and your child to celebrate magic moments during the swimming lesson programme
  • Teachers are specifically trained to teach ‘the Becky Way’ - innovative and fun!
  • There are dedicated resources for children, parents and teachers.
