SwimRVA’s Adult Swim Lessons

Whether you know the basics but want to become a stronger swimmer or are new to swimming, SwimRVA is here for you. SwimRVA offers swim lessons for adults that emphasize proper techniques while helping everyone have fun in the water while staying safe.

Why Learn to Swim as an Adult

One of the many great things about swimming is you can learn how to swim or improve your existing skills at any age. Besides your own safety in the water, taking adult swim lessons offers many other benefits like building confidence, emphasizing the importance of water safety for your family and improving mental health.

Our swim lessons follow a seven-station water safety course for beginner swimmers. Each module focuses on developing a specific skill so swimmers can learn and execute it confidently. Once students have mastered one station, they immediately move on to the next and start learning and practicing a new skill. With our seven-station curriculum, swimmers can begin building on skills right away instead of having to wait for the next class.
