Adult Swim Academy Lessons


Learning to swim has no age limit, all swimmers who attend a beginner’s class have the same fear and apprehensions, from getting your little toe wet to putting your face in the water. Understanding that you are not the only one with these fears will help you to overcome yours. Our teachers are understanding and patient and will help you to achieve your goal of learning how to swim, these sessions are delivered in 1 to 1.20 depth and for the nervous beginners class on a Tuesday is one teacher in the water to help and encourage while another teacher is on pool side directing the class.

Nervous beginners:
For swimmers who are very nervous in the water, there's a teacher in the water with each class- 45 min class


Take the plunge to learn how to swim- it doesn't matter what age you are- 45 min class


These sessions are for those swimmers who have learned the basics and would like to learn techniques and build on their capabilities. The depth of water is the same as beginner classes, however, the swimmers will be brought on occasion into deeper water. The stroke technique will be gradually built on from body position leading to leg kick which will lead on to arm action and then combining them all together with breathing and timing. A variety of strokes and skills will be taught at these levels - 45 min class


When a swimmer has progressed through the programme they will join the lengths class, this will help to develop confidence in deep water and swimmers will learn new skills like diving. This class is a great way to further your swimming ability and to keep fit if you are already a confident swimmer you can join this group straight away. These lessons work on the finishing touches to all strokes, building stamina and developing other aquatic skills - 45 min class
