What do swimming lessons include?

Swimming lessons include all the tasks necessary for your swimming instructor to teach you, your children, and even your babies to swim safely and with confidence. These are private swimming lessons where your hired instructor can introduce first-timer swimmers of any age to water in a safe manner and ensure that the class begins on a positive note. 

They can give lessons in the shallow end of a pool to help beginners find their buoyancy, develop their confidence and get them accustomed to staying in the water. After they develop these skills, they can learn the basics. These can include proper breathing, proper arm strokes and kicking. Swimming instructors can adjust to a student’s level, from absolute beginners to more advanced swimmers.   

Baby swimming lessons 

Yes, swimming instructors can teach your baby to swim! Note that your baby must be at least 6 months old to take swimming lessons. Babies at this age tolerate colder water better and have better motor skills. Your swimming instructor can teach your baby alone, but they may ask for at least one parent to take part. 

The presence of mum or dad is essential to make sure your baby feels safe and comfortable during the lesson. The swim instructor can help your baby learn to love and enjoy the water, teach them how to float and gradually teach them how to kick and move about in the water.  

Kids swimming lessons

Your hired instructor can start your kids’ lessons by teaching your kids how to breathe underwater and how to float. These one-to-one swimming lessons can help toddlers and pre-teens enjoy the water and avoid developing a fear of it. Your swimming instructor can teach them basic swimming strokes after they’ve mastered floating and proper breathing. 

Adult swimming lessons

Swimming instructors can also teach adult students to swim. If the adult student is a beginner and has aquaphobia, some instructors can lead them to overcome their fear of water. For adult learners that are more comfortable in the water, the instructor can teach them how to float on their own or help improve their technique. They can also teach adult students essential breathing and floating, then proceed to learn swimming strokes and strategies to move through the water. 

Lessons for advanced swimmers

Some swimming instructors can teach advanced swimmers to improve if necessary. If an advanced student is a competitive swimmer, the swim instructor can test their ability by timing their laps. They can see how they can help them improve their lap times and recommend the necessary measures. This can include setting a diet and training regimen, then testing to measure improvement. This process can continue until the advanced swimmer attains their goals. Once you’ve mastered swimming, why not learn to conquer deeper waters?
