Adult beginner lessons

Did you know one in five adults in the UK can’t swim?  Well it is never too late to learn.  Our friendly and welcoming classes are designed for all abilities, providing a supportive and encouraging environment for you to enjoy your time swimming with us.

Class content

The classes are tailored to ensure adults can progress at their own pace.  We start out by working on the basics and developing your core muscles as well as confidence in the water. Then the classes move onto perfecting your strokes, without adding too much distance to your training, so you can focus on your technique without getting tired by the length of the pool. Classes cover:

  •    Floating and treading water
  •    Basic stroke technique
  •    Building the confidence to submerge yourself under the surface

We give extra care to people that have had unfortunate experiences with water, so please do tell us if you have had negative experience or a particular concern.

What to bring

Swim kit consisting of a board, flippers, pull buoy (you can bring your own or purchase this from us for £45).  You’ll also need a towel, goggles (we sell them for £15 a pair) and a swim cap (we sell these for £5 each).


Classes are 45 minutes long
