Adult Swim Lessons

Currently, due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, Our Pool remains closed to adult swim lessons. As soon as we have any information on re-opening these lessons we will be posting on our social media channels.

 

Swim England believes that every person should have a chance to learn to swim and become the very best swimmer they can be, which is why our adult lessons give a very specific set of aims and targets.

The Adult Swimming Framework has a national syllabus with clear aims and objectives which help swimmers start to become competent and confident in their ability in the water.


It caters for every type of adult swimmer, including those who are unable to swim at all, beginners and those who are nervous about swimming. There is also support for swimmers who are coming back to swimming after a break or just those who want to improve their technique.


The four Adult Learn to Swim Awards


1. Be Water Confident – this Award is about gaining the confidence to enter the pool safely. It also covers the ability to move around the pool with confidence and to achieve basic core aquatic skills. These are entries, exits, buoyancy, balance and aquatic breathing.

2. Be a Swimmer – by the time you earn this Award you will have the necessary skills to start swimming independently over short distances (5 to 10 metres). You won’t need support or swimming aids


3. Be a Better Swimmer – by this point you’ll be able to swim up to 400 metres independently. You’ll also have the confidence to try other pool activities, such as Aquacise or lane swimming.


4. Be a Master Swimmer – gaining this Award means you can confidently enter the Masters section of a swimming club (find more on Masters swimming here). It’s about more advanced swimming skills to enable you to compete.


Adult Learn to Swim Awards Core Skills
As you work through each of these four stages you will focus on developing the follow key skills:

• Entries and exits
• Treading water
• Rotation and orientation
• Streamlining
• Aquatic breathing
• Sculling
• Travel and coordination
• Floatation
• Stamina
• Submersion
• Water safety

It’s a good idea to talk to your swimming teacher before you start about what you want to get out of lessons.
Although each of the four stages has a number of outcomes, not all outcomes will need to be achieved to move onto the next stage; as they are not compulsory.
Adult learn to swim is about flexibility. The swimming teacher will select the required outcomes based your individual goals.
