Adult Group Swim Lessons allow swimmers to progress at their own pace, mastering one set of skills before moving on to the next level. Adult swim lessons are available in the following three levels and developed to meet the needs of adult learners: Beginners, Intermediate and Swim for Fitness.

LMU BRC ensures the same high quality experience at our pool. The new adult swim lesson program has the following levels:

  • Beginners: This level is designed to introduce the inexperienced or fearful adult so that they become more comfortable in the water and learn to enjoy the water safely. We will work to help participants conquer their fear of swimming and introduce basic concepts of stroke technique and water safety. The majority of this class takes place in the shallow end of the pool. Participant will learn how to enter and exit the pool safely and control their breathing. As they build their confidence, students will learn proper body position on both their front and back with flutter kick.
  • Advanced Beginners: This level is designed to introduce swimming strokes to participants so that they develop confidence and endurance as novice swimmers. This class is for participants who feel comfortable in the water and are looking to improve technique and learn new strokes. This class covers more advanced deep-end skills, such as diving, treading water, and fitness swimming. Participants will master the swimming strokes in Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Sidestroke, and Butterfly. Basic flip turns at the wall are introduced. Treading water and recovery to a swimming position is mastered.
  • Swim for Fitness: This level is designed for participants who have mastered the swimming strokes to increase their level of fitness, to compete in triathlons or join a Masters Team. This class is for participants who want to work on proper timing, stroke refinement, efficiency, power and endurance.
