Adult Learn to Swim

Adult Learn to Swim 

It is never too late to learn how to swim! Swim Wales believes that every person should have a chance to learn to swim and become the very best swimmer they can be. 

Swim Wales work with lesson providers to ensure that lessons are engaging and motivating for all abilities, and ultimately provide a pathway into independent swimming.

Making the decision to learn to swim as an adult will help develop individual confidence, ability and skill in the aquatic environment. Learning to swim is a life skill which can enhance quality of life through physical activity and achievement of goals – whether that be to complete a triathlon, join a Masters swimming club, take advantage of the 60+ Free Swimming Initiative in Wales or just enjoy being in and around the water with family and friends. Not to forget that swimming is great fun, with plenty of room for progression and improvement.

Confident swimmers can be given the opportunity to improve all of the four strokes, go into the competitive side of swimming or to join a Masters club which are aimed at adults over the age of 18.
