Whether you are new to the pool or aiming to improve your technique, KAL has adult swimming lessons available for all abilities. If you have never learnt to swim or maybe you can swim a little but want to improve, whatever your swimming ability we can help. It's never too late to master the art of swimming!

The aim of our program is to assist swimmers to reach their potential by placing them in the most suitable session on the KAL Adult Swim Pathway.

The Adult Swim Pathway is as follows:

Adult Introduction

This session 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.​

The introduction to Adult Learn to Swim is an 8-week programme which is an initial course that any beginner adult swimmer would attend prior to the Be a Swimmer or Be a Better Swimmer lessons​

Swimmers will cover the Swim England Adult Learn to Swim Be Water Confident criteria.

Be A Swimmer

These sessions aim to give participants the skills to start swimming independently over short distances. The sessions are ideal for those with little previous swimming experience and feel confident enough to try skills using floatation equipment or those who have not been in the pool for a while and would like to get back into swimming these sessions could be for you.

Swimmers will cover the Swim England Adult Learn to Swim Be A Swimmer criteria.

Be A Better Swimmer

These sessions will give swimmers the necessary skills to start swimming longer distances and more strokes independently. Participants will also gain confidence to take part in other activities such as public swimming, length swimming and SwimFit.

Swimmers will cover the Swim England Adult Learn to Swim Be a Better Swimmer criteria.
