Top Swimming Lessons related questions

While having access to your own swimming pool can have its benefits, it’s not required. Some teachers will have their own pool that they are happy for you to use, while going to a public pool is a commonly taken option.
Although it’s possible to be a great teacher without formal education, there are nationally recognised courses run through the likes of AustSwim and Swim Ed. Supplementary courses such as those in life saving can also be useful and, if the lessons are for a child, having your teacher pass a working with children check (e.g. holding a blue card in Queensland) is a good idea.
Babies can begin going in the water as newborns (but obviously they will need to be supported and monitored), but many teachers suggest you wait until they are at least six months old before introducing them to lessons.
This depends completely on your targets and a number of personal factors. No two people learn at the same rate, but you can speed things up by taking lessons more regularly (e.g. twice a week instead of once a week). A child who is scared of water will take longer to come to terms with swimming than someone who enjoys splashing around, however the skills they will learn are hugely important in Australia.
If you are taking the lessons to be safe in the water, it’s important to note that there is always a little bit of risk in the ocean or in a pool. Having said that, a good rule of thumb is that you should be able to swim 100m unassisted before you give up lessons.
The average cost of swimming lessons on Airtasker is $40-$80, but bear in mind that you will need more than one lesson to be safe in the water.

Suggested reads about Swimming Lessons

What do swimming teachers do?

Swimming lessons can be catered to the needs of you or your children. Whether your child has never been in the water before or you want the edge to compete in races, Airtasker has swimming instructors of all levels to match your requirements. 


Once you’ve outlined what you want, you can speak with a number of instructors to find the one who’s best suited to your goals. They’ll be able to give you lesson outlines and a rough idea of how many lessons you’ll need to get to where you want to be. 

Remember that the price you agree on is simply for the instructor’s time. If you need to make use of a public pool or to buy special equipment – whether it’s new swimmers or floaties – those costs will be on top of the task’s budget. 

Swimming lessons for children

As a parent, your child’s safety is one of the most important things to you. In Australia, this includes them being comfortable in the water. Swimming lessons for children will introduce your kids to water safety. From babies to school-age children, lesson plans can be created to take them from using buoyancy aids to swimming on their own. 

Swimming lessons for adults

Not all adults learnt to swim when they were younger, but it’s never too late to learn. A few lessons with a qualified instructor will help you to overcome your fears and understand the basic strokes and breathing techniques. Lessons can also include tips on identifying rips and other dangers at the beach. 

Training for racing

If your child has shown a keen interest in swimming and is interested in racing, an experienced instructor may be what they need to shave a few seconds off their lap times. Depending on the teacher, this may include remodelling their swimming technique, practising turns and doing work outside the pool. 

Life saving lessons

No matter how well someone can swim, there’s always the risk of an accident. Knowing the dos and don’ts of life-saving can save someone’s life without putting yourself at risk. These types of courses are particularly useful for parents and those considering becoming a pool supervisor.

Me and my friends, a total of 3 of us, wish to learn to swim. We're basically beginners, but have experienced the water. Preferably we want a male helping us out, since we're all guys. And finally we're all around the age 19. We'd want around multiple lessons, over a few week period, depending on the speed we learn and how confident we get. I think we can think of a reasonable price for both parties in hopes we can learn this important life skill, if any one out there is willing to help us out.
