about us

Becky Adlington's SwimStars is an exciting learn to swim programme written by Becky Adlington, Britain's most successful swimmer, with Alan Rapley and Linda Freeman, two of the most experienced and respected experts in teaching children to swim.

The programme is owned by BASS (UK) Ltd, which is a partnership between Becky and Total Swimming Ltd, one of the UK's largest and most innovative private specialist swimming companies in the UK.

All of the swimming teachers who deliver Becky Adlington's SwimStars go through additional training, over and above their ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) coaching qualifications, to enable them to teach children how to swim 'The Becky Way'.


The programme is delivered at venues across the UK either directly by BASS (UK) Ltd or our carefully selected private swim school partners, at high quality swimming pool venues. 

We aim to provide the best and most enjoyable way for children to learn how to swim, focused on values such as excellence, determination, respect and friendship.

Becky's vision is to have no child leave primary school unable to swim 25 metres.   

The Becky Adlington’s SwimStars programme is committed to ensuring that a gold standard of customer care is in place for every child, parent and teacher. Becky is passionate about ensuring that everyone has a fun experience at Becky Adlington’s SwimStars.
