Learn-to-Swim Program

$125

    8 lessons

The Learn-to-Swim program is for those who do not feel ready to attend regular practices, or who want to learn or improve their techniques and strokes. Participants learn the basics of freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly and/or work on stroke improvement. They also learn to use the timing clock, develop aerobic pacing, floating, flip turns and pool etiquette.

Our program aims to develop the swimmer’s competency and comfort in the pool. Each session is tailored to the participants’ abilities and swimming goals. For beginners, we will work with individuals to develop a certain level of comfort in the water and to introduce them to the various swimming techniques. For experienced swimmers, we will work on developing and refining the techniques; introduce swim workouts, as well as developing endurance. A previous swimming background is not required.

Next sessions:
 

The Learn-to-Swim classes will restart when the pool reopens.

The learn-to-swim fee includes access to the members’ website and swim team news. You will receive a Rideau Speedeaus swim cap upon completion of the program!
