Swim Lessons for Adults!

Adults learning to swim backstroke in swimming lessons

More and more adults looking for adult swimming lessons.

Majority of our adults swimmers,  have the same backstory. They are adult who never leant to swim properly as a child or had a bad experience with it.

Motivation for learning to going back to swimming lessons for adults could vary a lot.

Are you a beginners?

That is O.k!

Honestly, we have taught many adults who wanted to learn to swim from scratch.

Some adults after having their own families, would like to be able to join their kids and enjoy family swims and water parks trips.

Some adults start going back to swimming after decades of break, because they have picked up some injury and land-based activities hurts their joints.

Some adults just want to learn how to be more water confident so they can enjoy swimming when they are holidaying.

Plus, more and more adult swimmers want to get better at swimming.

Swimming with correct stroke technique is what you must know to be able to swim laps. Many adults have had swim lessons with us because they want to learn a specific stroke for example front crawl (with proper side breathing) or Breaststroke or Backstroke.

And finally, with the growing popularity of triathlon, even good adult swimmers sometimes need to seek professional advise to polish and perfect their front crawl.

So, whatever your motivation is, we have both the expertise and experience to help you to achieve your goals, no matter where you are starting your swimming journey from!

If you are starting from complete scratch and unsure about water, we have a history of helping adults with an old water-phobia and teaching them to be comfortable and relax in water and swim.

Are You A Nervous Swimmer?

Backstory: Peter was a very healthy, active and sporty guy when he joined in 2019. Peter was a complete beginner and had a difficulty to be t relax specially in the deep-end of the swimming pool. Peter never learnt to swim as a child.

At last, in my mid 40’s I decided to find time to learn how to swim. I could not be more happier with my choice of the school. Absolutely brilliant swimming school for all ages and abilities. Thanks to James, only after few 1-2-1 lessons I could see the progress and started to enjoy swimming. Despite his young age James is a born teacher. I’m loving every minute of the learning experience. ~ Peter Chopyk (January 2020)

If you are O.K to swim in the shallow end, but, get panic when water goes over your head, we can help you getting your water confidence up. So, if lack water confidence is stopping you from going for a swim, let us help you with swimming outside of your comfort zone.

Want to learn a new stroke or improve your front crawl their technique, hear it first-hand of how we helped Chris in  Summer 2019, who really wanted to improve her front crawl technique and learn to do the bilateral breathing correctly ad efficiently.

You can choose between one-to-one and semi-private lessons. The option of semi-private can be only offered if you would like to share your swim lessons with a friend or a family member. Currently, we have no adult group lessons and very unlikely to add it to our programme anytime soon, post Coronavirus pandemic.
