Adult Swimming Lessons at The Y Onehunga Pools

Swimming doesn’t have to end at school with The Y (formerly known as YMCA)

Learning to swim as an adult can be a daunting prospect – so it’s a brave decision to make! It’s never too late to learn, and having a good understanding of swimming technique and safety around water means that you’ll not only be better equipped to stay safe yourself, but you’ll be able to make sure that your kids or other young people around you stay safe too.

The Y's swim lessons for adults cater to people aged 16 years and over. No matter your fitness or skill level, our instructors provide personalised advice to help you improve and achieve your goals in the water.

All of our adult swimming classes are taken by qualified instructors, and for your comfort, lessons are held in a dedicated indoor teaching pool. Whether you’re coming into lessons with no experience whatsoever, or you need to brush up on some technique, we’re equipped to guide you through the necessary steps to become more confident in your swimming.
