Look for adult swimming lessons using a website, such as SwimLessons.com, that locates all nearby instructors and swimming schools. Another good option is looking at the local YMCA, as they frequently offer swimming classes for adults.
SwimLessons.com provides a tool that makes it easy to find nearby swimming instructors. Some work privately and come to the person’s home to teach swimming, while others work for fitness clubs or swimming schools. The tool requires entering a ZIP code, address or just a city and state. Select Adult Swimming Lessons under the type of lessons, and choose between group lessons, private lessons or semi-private lessons. Also select the current swimming level, such as non-swimmer, beginner, intermediate or advanced.
The Swim Lessons website also provides a list of swimming schools in different areas of the country. Start by selecting a state and narrowing down the search by choosing a city. There is a list of nearby swimming schools and a map that shows the location of each school.
The YMCA is a good place to check for local swimming lessons, and they are often less expensive than private instructors or traditional swimming schools. Most YMCAs offer different levels of classes, including those for beginner, intermediate and advanced swimmers.
