Adult lessons

ladies only

31% of adults in Britain can’t swim one length of a 25m pool. We want to change this statistic and so Brooks Swim School runs ladies only swimming lessons. These lessons aim to initially teach you the basics, before progressing to technique and deep water confidence work to teach you how to be safe in deep water and a confident swimmer. 

What: Ladies only swimming lessons for  complete beginners, improvers and more advanced swimmers.

When: Wednesdays 6.30 and 7.15pm (45 min lessons)

Where: Keech Hospice, Luton

Cost: £58 for a block of 6 lessons

What happens in a lesson? Lessons are a mixture of stroke work and skills. Stroke work includes front paddle, progressing to front crawl with breathing, as well as back and breaststroke. We use aids including noodles and floats to help you isolate parts of the stroke and improve them before trying the full stroke again. Skills are equally important when learning to swim as they are needed when learning the strokes and help to develop your confidence and trust in the water. Skills include floating, gliding, treading water, jumping and diving, personal survival in deep water and surface diving. These skills help to improve your confidence in the water which enables you to develop your strokes and become a swimmer who is safe in deep water.

Who joins? Learners range from ladies who have never swum or been in a pool before to ladies who can swim a bit but lack confidence going out of their depth or want to improve their technique to make swimming more enjoyable. We offer a supportive environment for you to learn in but we do try and push you as well as we often find we have more confidence in your abilities than you do!
