Adult Swimming Lessons are known for its many benefits compared to other sports. With the less gravity straining on bones, joints and muscles. The water also works almost every part of the muscles due to the water resistance. This aids in rejuvenating, healing and improve blood circulation. In recent research and articles published, it states that being in the water helps to reduce blood pressure, heart rate and stress levels. Therefore, simply just walking in the water would help gain health benefits for any age groups.
In our Adult and Senior learn-to-swim programme, we will screen through if there are any underlying health or physical issues that our student has. From there, we will advise which swim strokes or techniques would be best to learn first. We will also understand the objective and expectation of our student. Through this whole procedure, we will be able to address their needs.
Learning to Swim need not only be about swim strokes. Many a times, we will address survival techniques more than purely swim strokes. In our Senior learn-to-swim programme, majority of them will have underlying issues that would require approved medical letter. Besides addressing their objective and expectation, we will also implement different water safety techniques and movements that will help develop their physical and cognitive development which will help to decrease their daily response time on land.
Adult Swimming Lessons
There is no age limit to learning!
Most adult beginner students who want to learn swimming are usually those who would like to include themselves in other water sports or activities that require water safety and basic swimming, such as:
- Scuba diving,
- Snorkeling, or
- Simply to join other adults to fun beach or pool parties together, those who feel left out at such occasions!
Our Adult Learn-To-Swim program is customised and catered to each individual’s needs – Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced. Each class is conducted in a small group ratio for better attention and clarification for every individual.
What is covered?
Beginner Class (Only the basic styles are taught):
- Frontcrawl (freestyle)
- (Survival) Backstroke
Our teachers will assess and break down the class to teach each style according to student’s confidence and progress. Our approach is focused on being water confident first, to promote water safety, followed by stroke technique & correction.
If students want to learn other techniques such as treading water, butterfly style or backstroke, these are considered as Intermediate or Advanced progression from the Beginner Program.
