Even as an adult, it’s imperative to make water safety a priority! According to a report published by the American Red Cross, only 56% of adults who say they can swim can perform life-saving water safety skills. These skills include floating or treading water without a floatation device, exiting the water without using a ladder, and other essential competencies to help yourself in a pool or open-water emergency! Whether you’re in need of basic safety training, or simply looking to improve your swimming technique, adult swimming classes in Chicago may be right for you!

About our Swimming Classes for Adults in Chicago

It’s never too late to learn how to swim! At British Swim School of Downtown Chicago, we teach swimming and water safety skills to adults of all abilities and skill levels. Our adult swimming classes provide personalized attention based on the areas that each student needs most, allowing for more-customization and the opportunity to focus instruction on your goals. The swimming and water safety techniques taught in our adult swimming classes will protect individuals from preventable drowning tragedies and teach the skills needed to confidentially enjoy water-based fun with friends and family.

Our Adult program is structured into three levels – water acclimation, water survival and stroke development – to help adult swimmers gradually progress their skills in a safe environment with a trusted, caring, and certified Instructor. Depending on skill level and areas of need, some of the skills we teach in our swimming classes for adults include:

  • Water acclimation and becoming comfortable in the water
  • Floating, treading water, and other skills to prepare you to learn full swim strokes
  • Learning and practicing traditional swimming strokes
  • Lifesaving water safety and survival skills
  • And more!
