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 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?
