Learn to Swim

Who should attend?
Non-swimmers who have anxieties about learning to swim and anyone who feels uncomfortable putting their face in the water.

Aim
To gently build up an assured confidence in the water. The pools we teach in are shallow (generally 1.2m deep). Instead of using floats, we work with you in the water and help you to discover the natural buoyancy of your body.

By the end of the course you should be able to:

  • walk unaided freely around a shallow pool,
  • release body tension in the water,
  • manage the transition between air and water without anxiety,
  • glide with your face in the water assisted or unassisted
  • recover from gliding to standing, and
  • float on your back assisted or unassisted.

You may also be able to move on to basic:

  • front crawl leg kick,
  • front crawl arm recovery, and
  • body rotation on front/back.
  • front crawl leg kick,
  • front crawl arm recovery, and
  • rotation on front/back.
  • front crawl arm recovery, and
  • rotation on front/back.

We have had many years experience teaching those who need to overcome all types of uncertainties in the water. Your Art of Swimming teacher will always be in the water with you to help, encourage and reassure every step of the way.
