Ages 18 years and up

It’s never too late to learn how to swim! Whether you started learning to swim as a child, but never quite mastered it, or feel uncomfortable around water, we’re here to help you learn to swim confidently, in a supportive environment. You’ll soon feel safe and secure in any body of water– whether it’s a pool or a lake!

The skills taught in Adult Swim Lessons center around four main components:

  • Personal Safety:
    Students learn to be safety conscious in and around water.
    The information forms the basis of accident prevention.
    Survival skills and self-rescue skills are taught.
  • Personal Growth:
    In learning new skills students build self-esteem.
    They also learn the consequences of their choices in relation to water safety.
  • Stroke Development:
    Students are taught through stroke techniques.
    Paddling skills, treading, floating, basic rescue skills
    and safety using lifejackets are among those taught.
  • Rescue:
    Students learn safety techniques – knowing when to yell for help,
    being able to go for assistance, reaching and throwing assists.
