Never had the chance to learn to swim? Or not really comfortable in the water? Maybe a bad experience when you were younger? Or maybe you can swim a bit but want to improve your technique or build up your confidence. Then Out to Swim Lessons can help. 

Beginners – These are for non-swimmers and those wanting to build their swimming confidence. We hold these lessons in small groups in a small training pool so swimmers get a lot of close attention from the teachers while learning in a safe, supported environment. When the teacher thinks you’re ready, you’ll be able to move to the intermediate lessons group. 

Intermediate and advanced – These are aimed at swimmers who are beyond the beginners’ stage but need to work on their technique and build up their stamina. These operate on a roughly 12-week cycle during which swimmers work on all four strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly) as well as starts and turns.

At the end of each cycle, our Head Coach, Michelle, assesses how well the swimmers in these groups are doing and whether they are ready to move to the next level up from, say, intermediate to the advanced lessons group, or from advanced lessons to Development. If you’re not quite ready, you can just continue in your existing group.
