Our adult swim classes focus on comfort and ability in the water and are not intended to produce competitive swimmers. Fear often outweighs technical inability, so we begin by focusing on comfort in the water and using tools to decrease that fear. As the swimmer’s comfort steadily improves, focus then shifts to technical training.
The Adult I program is designed for individuals 15 years and older that have no swimming experience. The SSI approach to teaching adults to swim involves using floatation aids as well as vision aids and propulsion aids (goggles, fins), and breath control techniques to assist in reducing nervousness. Safety skills, comfort in water too deep to stand in and fundamental swimming strokes are developed using a comfort through repetition philosophy. (Personal goggles and fins are recommended.)
