Swim School for Adults

It’s never too late to Learn to Swim.

Many adults feel embarrassed to admit that they can’t swim (or can’t swim well). They figure, it’s too late to pick it up.

You're not alone. One in every 20 adults feel exactly the same.

The good news is, it's never too late to learn. Our adults classes are the perfect way to set a good example for your children, and learn essential skills to survive in the water.

It's normal to feel nervous.

Let us repeat. It is normal to feel nervous. We know that it can be hard to take the first step.

But that is ok.

At Adelaide Aquatic Centre, you work slowly with kind and patient professional swim coaches. You go at your own pace and skill level that is comfortable, in a small class of other adults of similar skill. There is no pressure, and no feeling self-conscious or embarrassed.

Not every family scrapbook is filled with fond memories of the beach. But that does not mean you must miss-out on on memories to come.

That's why in your class, you will learn:

  • The trick to feeling confident by the pool and how to learn to love the water
  • Why you have trouble floating – and the secret to stay afloat
  • All the basic strokes AND the best reason to use each one
  • How to fine-tune your style and swim with ease

Since founding Adelaide Aquatic Centre half a century ago, we have taught hundreds of adults the fundamental swimming skills they need to survive.

Our pool is always heated to a toasty 27°C, and classes are held all year round at convenient times throughout the week – because we know you’re busy.

"Saying, 'I’m not good at this but I want to learn – can you teach me?' means the fear no longer rules me. I am back in control."
