45 minute 121 Swim Coaching tailored specifically to your requirements
The relevant Swim Coach will get in touch to arrange a suitable time and location. Please select Emma for week days and Christine for weekends. (Please note that while they teach swim courses on behalf of Seabirds any 1 to 1 work will be independent of Seabirds and arranged directly with them).
Emma is a Swim England level 2 teacher. She specialises in teaching beginners and those wishing to improve their technique - especially those wishing to transition from breaststroke to front crawl or adjust their front crawl for sea swimming.
Emma is a proud Brighton girl, born and bred and has been dipping and playing in the sea all her life. She began to swim more seriously ten years ago when she herself had lessons. This is when her passion for distance swimming began.
Emma strongly believes in the healing powers of the sea and wants to share this passion with all ages and abilities.
Christine is a STA Open Water Swim Coach trained by the best in the business, double world champion Keri-Anne Payne
Christine grew up in Saltdean and remembers most of that being in the sea! She loves the wonderful feeling of freedom it gives and the different conditions that tides and weather decide to present. She says "Nothing is more wonderful than helping others overcome fear to realise the delights of the sea swimming, improve strokes and stamina and realise dreams, what ever they may be. I am delighted to be part of the Salty Seabirds!"
Fantastic - thank you Christine!
I had a 1-2-1 swimming lesson with Christine earlier in August. I haven't managed to swim with Salty Seabirds yet (I swim off Shoreham/Lancing more than Brighton way) but joined the online group some time ago and was really excited to see these sea lessons. I felt I needed a refresh on crawl as had been struggling with my breathing (I only learnt to crawl a year ago and that was in a swimming pool). Christine was absolutely brilliant, very knowledgeable - am in awe of her swimming achievements - and supportive. I came away feeling I'd learnt some great top tips to put into practice on my own and I had a great swim. Thank you Christine!
The title sums it up! Emma is so warm, empathetic, encouraging and enthusiastic I came away inspired. She tailored the lesson to exactly what I needed and. I didn’t want it to end. A huge THANK YOU!
Thank You Christine
I had a 1 to 1 swim coaching session with Christine today, and it was amazing.
Christine was patient and understanding (of my health conditions, and with me), and hugely encouraging and supportive.
After 10+ years not sea swimming due to my health, I'm back in and absolutely loving it.
Christine not only helped to give me my confidence back, but also helped me to get my life back. Thank You so much Christine.
I hope to start swimming now with the Seabirds, and can't recommend 1 to 1 coaching with Christine highly enough.
PS Christine also covered safety aspects of sea swimming and I was able to ask questions. Greatly appreciated.
From a very happy swimmer : )
