Adult Swimming Lessons

Adult swimming lessons across our Auckland centres all have qualified instructors taking lessons in dedicated (and heated!) teaching pools. We have private tuition and group lessons available, depending on your preferences – and we can cater to specific event or triathlon training too. You’ll develop everything from the basics of body position through to technical proficiency in each of the four strokes (freestyle, back stroke, breast stroke and butterfly).

So if it’s been a while since you last gave swimming a go – or if you’ve never taken the plunge – our adult learn to swim programme at The Y will give you a whole new level of confidence in your daily life.
