Then we focus on what you want ot achieve and go from there. It takes time to gain a new skill, give yourself time to learn and practice – it will be so, so worth it!

If you can already float, kick or move through the water or if you want to learn how to swim out of your depth then “Adult improver” is your course. If you can swim but want to increase distance, speed and stamina or learn tumbleturns, “Adult Advanced” is for you.

Be a swimmer – Adult improver lessons

At this stage, you already:

  • are comfortable in deeper water, up to your shoulders

You will learn:

  • Treading water
  • improve basic strokes,
  • learn to breathe properly
  • build stamina and confidence in deeper water

Don’t forget about handstands and picking up sinkers from the bottom of the pool!
