Adult Swimming Lessons

The UWA Aquatic Centre provides specialised adult lessons and private swimming lessons for beginner adult swimmers.

Adult lessons are small group classes (maximum of four participants) that operate over 10-week blocks. The lessons cater to swimmers who would like to further develop the three core strokes (freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke) and focus on the correct breathing and stroke technique.

Private lessons are tailored to suit your individual ability and learning objectives. Please contact us on 6488 2277 to arrange a day and time for your private swimming lesson.
