Better Late Than Never: Adult Learn to Swim Programs in Chicago

Adults in pool with swim instructors during adult learn to swim programs in ChicagoThere’s an old wives’ tale you’ve likely heard that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” This is a common misconception that is flat-out wrong. The fact is, you’re never too old to learn new skills, especially swimming! Now more than ever, adult learn to swim programs in Chicago are widely available and help adults become safer and more confident around the water!

About our Adult Learn to Swim Program in Chicago

Learning to be safe in the water is a critical life skill regardless of age. However, there’s a mistaken belief that swimming lessons are only for children. Think again!

That’s why British Swim School created our adult program, which is specifically designed for teaching adult swimmers. We recognize that many adults have varying levels of skills and experience and there is no “one size fits all” approach. Our adult program tailors the lesson plan to the individual needs and goals of each student!

While our adult program is personalized around the needs of each individual, a few of the common skills taught in our program include:

  • Water acclimation to build comfortability and a foundation for future swimming lessons.
  • Water survival skills to develop safe water habits in a comfortable and encouraging environment.
  • Swim readiness skills to prepare for advanced stroke techniques.
  • Advanced swimming techniques and stroke styles.
  • And more!
