Adult water confidence courses

Water confidence courses at Bradford-on-Avon Pool

As thoughts turn to summer, many of us look forward to cooling off in the pool or enjoying a dip in the sea. But for some, day trips to the beach or the annual holiday to warmer climes can be a stressful, fraught or even frightening experience.

Thankfully our water confidence courses, designed specifically for adults will get the most nervous, non-swimmers, into the water and well on the way to enjoying the many benefits that swimming brings. Small class sizes and a teacher in the pool to offer support creates a relaxed environment as you work towards feeling safer in the water.

Just take a look at a couple of comments we’ve had in from recent course attendees:

“As an adult I’ve spent a lifetime suffering from Aquaphobia. I decided to bite the bullet and sign up for a series of ‘swimming for the terrified’ lessons at Bradford-on-Avon Pool. With the help of my swimming instructor – Jackie Monk, I’ve overcome my fear of water and although I’m not yet swimming confidently, I enjoy and look forward to the sessions. I know it’s only a matter of time before I can swim a width of the pool.”

“The course gave me confidence, was very easy to understand ­– Jackie is an excellent swimming coach and gives a lot of support, making you feel at ease and able to overcome your fears. Couldn’t swim before, but now absolutely loving swimming – remember to bring your goggles.”
