ucanswim strongly believes that everyone can reach their full potential with their swimming, in essence uCANswim! We are based in Chester, but work with people from all over the Northwest. Our fundamental belief is that through continual improvement in technique, there is no limit to how much you can improve your swimming. It doesn’t matter what level you are at with your swimming, beginner right through to experienced and high level, there is room for improvement for everyone. We also cater for either pool or open water swimming, so we really don’t leave any drop of water untouched!

What can ucanswim offer you?

We take pride in the fact that we strongly believe that everyone is different, so there isn’t a one cap fit all approach or technique that suits one person. Our coaching method is to take each swimmer individually, to analyse your own style and technique, then take the correct technique improvements that will suit you. This will then give you the best chance to move your swimming on and achieve whatever goals or ambitions you have set for yourself.

We offer tailored, structured training plans to suit your swimming and lifestyle so you get the best out of your swimming. As an example, please see one of the packages we offer below (others are available):

  • Monthly 30 minute video analysis session in the flume.
  • Two sessions per week (these sessions are tailored to your swimming) and sent via email for you to do in your own time during the week.
  • Cost for this package is £60 per month

“Excellent coaching session this morning in flume pool, amazing how a few tweaks can totally improve stroke! Thanks Chris!”

@ucanswim I am pleased to report that I have taken my 400m swim time down from 9.47 to 8.49 after video swim analysis! 💪

'Just the best tuition sessions I've ever had! I've particularly enjoyed, and learned from, the fact that each session has focussed on a certain aspect of the stroke'.
