Announcing our 2018 Adult Learn-to-Swim Program

Swymnut Masters certified Adult Learn-to-Swim instructors and volunteers are offering FREE Adult Learn-to-Swim Lessons (ALTS) in June 2018!

This program is for adults with little to no swimming experience*. Whether you are afraid of the water, or just never had the chance to learn, we will help you feel safe and enjoy being in the water. Our instructors will guide you through the U.S. Masters Swimming ALTS curriculum at your own pace.

The program will cover:

  • relaxed breathing basics
  • front and back float, glide and kick
  • freestyle with breathing
  • deep water entry/exit
  • treading water
  • other swim strokes

We will offer two sessions. Each session includes seven classes and we ask that our participants commit to a full session.

Our 2017 Program

Our 2017 program was a smashing success. We had 21 participants in our basic two-week ALTS session. 10 of those participants moved on to a more advanced course, also 2-weeks long, where we worked to improve their freestyle stroke,  build their stamina and even teach another stroke. Check out some of our videos and pictures of our program in action.
