The Geelong College Adult Learn-to-Swim Program is aimed at teaching adults fundamental swimming and water safety skills.
Catering for a wide variety of individual needs, instructors are able to tailor each class to suit the students’ learning requirements and pace, whether you are having lessons for the first time and would like to be safer around water or are a competent swimmer needing stroke correction.
There are four levels available in our Adult Learn-to-Swim Program. Our staff will guide you and provide optimal learning for every individual.
Adult Introduction - This level is designed for people with little or no experience in the water, who want to improve confidence levels in and around the water. These classes provide an understanding of the basic foundation skills required for water awareness, aquatic safety and swimming, such as safe entries, submerging, floating, kicking and breathing.
Adult Beginner - This level is designed for people with some experience in the water, who would like to improve their confidence levels in and around the water and their swimming ability. These classes will provide an increased understanding of the basic skills required for water awareness, aquatic safety and swimming, such as improved kicking technique, introduction to deep water, basic freestyle and backstroke technique, and it will enable swimmers to swim at least 12 metres of proficient freestyle, backstroke and survival strokes.
Adult Intermediate - This intermediate level is designed for people with basic swimming and water safety proficiency who want to extend these skills. The classes provide tuition in stroke development, timing and breathing, and include water safety skills such as treading water and further developing survival strokes. The outcome of this course is to be able to swim proficient freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and survival strokes for at least two laps.
Adult Advanced - This advanced level will further extend participants’ swimming endurance levels and refine stroke technique and sculling, to better ensure safety levels in a variety of different aquatic environments. It has an extended class time of 45 minutes to 1 hour.
