Private swimming lessons for children.

We run enjoyable, structured and affordable swimming sessions for children of all ages and abilities.

RB Sports has been teaching children to swim since 2002, and we have seen many children pass through our classes and progress. Some just enjoyed their swimming in their free time and others have gone on to compete in national trials.

We have always tried to keep the fun aspect of swimming whilst not losing focus on the learning and safety aspects.

Rich holds an A.S.A. swim teacher certificate, is a Fellow of the Institute of Swimming Teachers and Coaches, and is a member of the Institute of Swimming.

Our lessons

Parents and toddlers: fun and games whilst learning valuable water skills for both parent and child.

Non swim: water confidence, taking those first “steps” towards swimming on your own.

Beginners: introduction of stroke skills.

Improvers: building on skills and strokes.

Stroke improvement: improving stamina, strengthening and perfecting strokes.


My two daughters have been having lessons with Rich for the past few years. They started as non swimmers and are now really confident in the water. Rich is very encouraging to the children that he teaches and makes every lesson fun. My girls look forward to their lessons every week. I would recomment Rich to anyone.
