Adult Swim Lessons

Our Adult Swim lessons are offered as private lessons and perfect for adults of any skill level from beginning non-swimmers to advanced.

“The Swim School is by far the best institution for students of any age to learn to swim. Watching my daughter develop her skills inspired my husband and I to take lessons. Now our entire family has learned to swim and we know that it is fundamental to learn a new life skill. Thanks to EXTRA patient instructors, we will enjoy swimming this summer as a family, and no longer sit on the sidelines.”.

  • Beginning Adult

    Adult swim lessons are once a week for one hour. Both evening and day classes are available.

    When you begin your swim lessons you are in water shallow enough to stand in comfortably if you so choose (4 feet deep).

    Our teachers will provide and fit you with a FREE safety vest, mask, snorkel, and fins. Using a fully inflated safety vest means you cannot sink, like training wheels on a bicycle.

    Next, with the confidence that you cannot sink we will teach you to use your arms and legs for propulsion. We work to get you to focus on your arm and leg movements prior to mastering breathing.

    You are encouraged to progress at your own pace to where you are comfortable releasing some of the air from the safety vest. In your own time you will begin swimming independently of the equipment.
