Adult Lessons

Here at AquaStars Swim Academy we also offer ladies-only swimming lessons on Tuesday evening.  This class is suitable for swimmers of all levels, from beginners to immediate and advanced!   We understand that not everybody was lucky enough to learn how to swim from an early age.  Swimming is a life-skill, and not being able to swim can sometimes feel like a burden – especially on holiday.

If you are serious about your swimming then there are four Adult Learn to Swim Awards to work towards.  These reflect the four Stages of the Adult Swimming Framework.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES OF EACH STAGE

  • Adult Stage 1

Be Water Confident – this Award is about gaining the confidence to enter the pool safely.  It also covers the ability to move around the pool with confidence and to achieve basic core aquatic skills.  These are entries, exits, bouyancy, balance and aquatic breathing.

  • Adult Stage 2

Be a Swimmer – by the time you earn this Award you will have the necessary skills to start swimming independently over short distances (5 to 10 metres).  You won’t need support or swimming aids.

  • Adult Stage 3

Be a Better Swimmer – by this point you’ll be able to swim up to 400 metres independently.  You’ll also have the confidence to try other pool activities, such as Aquacise or lane swimming.

  • Adult Stage 4

Be a Master Swimmer – gaining this Award means you can confidently enter tha Masters section of a swimming club (find more on Masters swimming here).  It’s about more advanced swimming skills to enable you to compete.
