Hi I’m Ed Williams

Managing Director


My name is Ed Williams and I am the founder of Elite Swimming Academy. My job is to maintain the quality and ethos with every step of the company to make sure we maintain a 5 star service and attention to detail in every element. I was the very first teacher for ESA and love seeing how much progress our swimmers make in every lesson. My main role now is working to re-develop new sites in order for us to expand without losing any of the ESA quality and magic that makes us special. 

When I am not in the office I spend my time swimming between countries doing extreme Channel swims to inspire our students. Check out the videos below for my latest swims.
