First hello and welcome to Everyone Active 1:1 Swimming my name is Simon and I am a ASA certified Swimming Teacher here at The Basildon Sporting Village, Everyone Active. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing me in what is the most comprehensive swimming development programme available in the UK. 


My 1:1 Swimming Package Program is a great way to compliment the main swimming lessons scheme giving swimmers that additional support they need to take their swimming to the next level.


Everyone Active 1:1 Swimming Swimming Lessons provide an ideal environment for you and/or your child to first gain water confidence, and subsequently develop excellent swimming techniques within a structured programme. The Swimming lesson programme adheres to the ASA Learn to Swim Framework (Amateur Swimming Association).



Upon arrival for your lesson at Basildon Sporting Village, Everyone Active, please ensure you scan the students Everyone Active Card at the turnstile (issued at the time of booking) this will gain access to the centre and automatically register their attendance. 


You will need a £1 coin (which is refundable) to enable you to store your belongings securely in a locker in the changing rooms.


In the interests of swimmer safety, we request that minimal jewellery is worn during swim lessons – this could include stud earrings and wedding rings.  Any jewellery that could pose a catch hazard must be removed or covered.


You can access the poolside through the exits in the changing rooms. No outdoor shoes are to be worn beyond this area; blue shoe covers are available in the entrance to the changing rooms or alternatively, please remove your shoes.


A 1:1 Swimming Package is a minimum of 4 lessons and the course fee is payable in full at time of booking. 24 hours’ notice must be given by the customer before rescheduling or cancelling a lesson or the fee will be forfeited.



Under 8’s through our care procedures  (THIS IS A PICK UP AND DROP OFF AREA). All children under 8 need to be taken to the shallow end of the main pool where the swimming teacher will greet you. The teacher will then escort the swimmer to the area allocated for their lesson. Once you have dropped off your child please make your way to the viewing areas (teaching pool entrance in the main foyer opposite the café, and the main pool balcony is reached via the main staircase). No spectators are allowed on Poolside.


Your child will be returned to you by the teacher at the ‘PICK UP/DROP OFF’ this area is located in-between the small and main pool. Please be back at this pick up area 5 minutes before the end of the lesson. The teacher will then move to the next pick up area for their next lesson. All lessons time slots allow 5mins for pick up/drop off and a brief on any progress made.

I hope you/your child enjoys their Everyone Active 1:1 Swimming Lessons, Please do not hesitate to contact myself or the Duty Manager if you have any enquiries or require any further information.

I feel very fortunate and lucky to be a swimming teacher and look forwards to working with you soon!
