Swim Lessons

 

SwimLessonsSwim lessons are available to adults 18 and over who are registered with Swymnut Masters under U.S. Masters Swimming. We offer 30-minute or 60-minute lessons with an option for underwater filming with comprehensive stroke analysis at an additional cost. All of our coaches are Level 3 USMS Certified Coaches (Cokie is Level 4) and can help you with all four strokes, starts and turns. Our coaches are also certified by USMS in their Adult Learn-to-Swim program (teaching someone how to swim who either doesn’t know how or is trying to overcome a fear of the water). Whether you are a novice swimmer or veteran, lessons can really help take you to the next level!

We also have the option to hold lessons at the Indian Valley pool. This must be arranged in advance as the time slots available change throughout the year.

Most of the year, we are able to offer lessons at our Lucas Valley pool at the below listed times. All of our coaches provide lessons and all lessons must be booked in advance to ensure lane and coach availability. Payment is made to Swymnut Masters.

  • Tuesday through Friday between the hours of 7:00 to 9:30 AM (at some times of the year we have to work around the pool cleaner or pool closures and these times might change temporarily)

Swim lessons are a great way to ease yourself into our Masters practices. If you have been out of the water awhile, aren’t quite sure of how things work in a swim practice, or are not yet confident of your ability to tackle that first Masters workout, consider signing up for a few lessons to work on your form, learn some drills we use in our practices, and understand some of the lingo as well as how to use the pace clock.

With Head Coach Cokie you have the option for underwater filming, which she does with a GoPro or iPhone/iPad in a waterproof case. This provides a terrific view of what is happening under the water with your stroke mechanics and body alignment. After your lesson, you will receive a link to your film with a comprehensive on-screen analysis as well as a detailed written report indicating your strengths and weaknesses for that particular stroke and drills that might help correct stroke deficiencies. This requires a few hours of computer  time to do this type of analysis and write the report hence the higher cost for this option.

All of our coaches are able to film you above water for a quick on deck review within your lesson block. Bringing your own smartphone (iPad, Android, etc.) or tablet is recommended so the coach does not have to later email you the file (they can get too big to email). If they need to film off their device and send the video to you there may be an added cost.

You are able to purchase a single lesson or a 4-pack lesson. We recommend 30-minute lessons unless you are an experienced swimmer and are trying to squeeze in 2 or more strokes in the lesson.

  1. Hi,
    I am looking for underwater filming and analysis. My girlfriend is a triathlete and would like to know how to improve her swim stroke. What option do you reccomend?
