What do adult swimming lessons include?

Adult swimming lessons include all the tasks necessary for students to learn how to swim with proper form and confidence. The lessons can consist of getting you comfortable in the water and learning basic aquatic skills. 

Your instructor can teach you the right way to breathe, float, kick and do arm strokes. They can teach you these skills one-by-one in shallow water, then guide you to combine them and develop your body coordination. They can then teach you basic swimming styles after you’ve mastered the essential skills.  

Getting accustomed to being in the water

Your adult swimming instructor can help you get used to being in the water. They can get you to stand in the shallow end of the pool, teach you to blow bubbles and use other techniques to help you feel more comfortable staying in the water. 

Learning to breathe

Your adult swimming instructor can teach you essential breathing skills like breathing underwater, the proper way to inhale and exhale, and how to hold your breath. They can give you these lessons in shallow water.  

Learning to float

As with breathing, your instructor can teach you how to float in shallow water. This step can include extending your arms and legs as you float on your back while the instructor supports you with a flotation device. You may have to do this for several sessions until the instructor allows you to float unassisted. Your instructor can use this or other techniques to teach you how to swim with confidence.  

Learning to kick

After learning how to float, your instructor can teach you how to kick and move through the water. They can teach you how to kick the right way, so you propel yourself through the water and don’t aimlessly splash about. They may provide you with a kickboard to develop this skill, then have you kick without its help. 

Learning arm strokes

Once you’ve learned how to kick, you can learn how to use your arms to make proper strokes. Your instructor can teach you good form and do arm strokes starting from a standing position, then on the water’s surface, then with your face in the water. Your swimming instructor can use this or other proven techniques to teach you how to do arm strokes. 

Combining lessons

After completing and mastering all the basics, your adult swimming instructor can ask you to put all of the lessons together and have you swim a short distance. They can observe your technique, then recommend which areas you must work to improve. 

This process can continue until your instructor thinks you have succeeded in combining the lessons and can swim the proper way. Once you’re confident with your newly-learned swimming skills, your instructor can teach you other swimming strokes if you wish.
