Adult Swim Lessons

Adult Swim Lessons in Knoxville, TN

The American Boating Association states that for boating accidents with a known cause of death, “75% of fatal boating accident victims drowned”. We want adults to have strong swimming skills as well as water safety knowledge so that they do not become part of this statistic.

What swimming skills can an adult acquire?

Adults can become Level 6 swimmers, ready to learn more advanced skills from other providers, such as scuba diving.

What do you do to help adults with a lot of fear about swimming?

Many adults who never learned to swim had a negative experience when they were children. That negative experience might have even been traumatic. We adapt swim lessons for adults to the comfort level of the student. We start slow and allow the adult to acclimate to the water, one skill at a time.

How many swim lessons should I book as an adult student?

We recommend starting with 10 lessons to give you the best chance of success, but this depends on your goals. If you want to learn to scuba dive, you may need more! If you want to learn to swim across a pool, 10 may be all you need.
