Beginners / Older Adult Beginners

It’s never too late to learn to swim! We understand that you may feel nervous about taking swimming lessons as an adult. If you have a fear of the water, or panic just thinking about the deep end, then this class is for you. We’ll help you with water confidence and relaxation and introduce you to core aquatic skills, including aquatic breathing.

Improver - Stroke development

This stage will help you develop stroke technique and core aquatic skills. We can tailor lessons to the stroke you wish to develop.


Skills and Drills

This stage will develop your pool etiquette and teach you to use equipment such as kickboards, pull buoys and fins. You’ll learn efficient stroke technique as we introduce you to basic training programmes to develop your fitness and stamina.



This class is perfect if you’re looking to improve your fitness, endurance, speed and technique. Classes are tailored to meet your individual needs.
