Learn from the best

Swim Skills started 25 years ago by Bill Furniss, coach to Double Olympic Champion Rebecca Adlington. Today, Swim Skills is made up of a team of expert swimming, strength and conditioning coaches, sports nutritionists and a sport psychologist because we believe in the power of a holistic approach to swimming.

It’s not just about what you do in the pool that matters. Our unique method involves working as an integrated team covering not only Water Skills, but also Land Skills and Performance Skills of mindset and lifestyle mentoring.

During the Q&A sessions at the end of our courses, you asked us if we had any videos, articles, tips or advice available online that you could look at and learn from. So we've been working on an online membership offer, which will be available soon.
