Nov 16, 2018 · According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 37 percent of U.S. adults can’t swim 24 yards, which is the length of a typical recreation-center pool. For some adults who don’t know how to swim, signing up for lessons is a big step in itself, as is showing up for a lesson. Swimming lessons for babies are typically less expensive than swimming lessons for adults. Learning to swim takes practice and repeat exposure, so many schools offer monthly tuition, which allows your child to attend at least one group class per week. Higher tuition can be paid for unlimited monthly group classes.
At the YMCA, we offer swim lessons for the beginner and for people looking to improve their strokes. Adult swim lessons are for people age 13 and older. Participants are evaluated on the first day of class and placed accordingly. AquaMobile private swim lessons are ideal for adults with a fear of swimming. Our patient and understanding swim instructors will help you overcome your fear of water so you can enjoy swimming. Within 10-12 lessons, beginner adult swimmers are often ready to move on to intermediate and advanced swimming skills.
