Adult Learn to Swim Classes in Auckland

Our adult swim classes are for swimmers of any age and ability

You’re never too old to learn to swim. Whether you’ve never learned and know you need to develop some skills to stay safe around water, or you learned the basics a long time ago but feel that you need a refresher, YMCA Auckland’s swimming lessons for adults can help you gain the confidence you need in the water.

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).

People join YMCA Auckland Adult Swim Squads for all sorts of reasons. Some want to refine their skills or learn a new technique, while others are keen to build their overall fitness or develop techniques for racing and competitions.

There’s no wrong reason to join our swimming squads for adults, we’re just as excited about swimming as you are – and really excited to have you on board.

However long its been since you last gave swimming a go – or if you’ve never taken the plunge – our adult learn to swim programme at YMCA Auckland will give you a whole new world of confidence.
