Swimming is a life skill that offers endless benefits, and it’s never too late to learn or improve. At the YMCA of Greater Whittier, we understand the unique needs and goals of adult learners, offering a comprehensive swimming program that caters to adults of all ages and skill levels. Whether you’re looking to enhance your aquatic skills, seeking a new form of exercise, or aiming to ensure your safety in the water, our adult swim lessons are designed to help you achieve your goals in a supportive and encouraging environment. 

Personal Growth: More Than Just Learning to Swim 

Our adult swim lessons are not just about learning to swim; they’re about personal growth. Each lesson is a step towards improving your swimming abilities, achieving progressive milestones, and gaining a sense of accomplishment. As you progress, you’ll notice improvements in your endurance, strength, and overall fitness. Swimming is a low-impact exercise, making it ideal for adults of all ages, especially those looking for a workout that’s gentle on the joints. 

Personal Safety: A Skill for Life 

One of the core elements of our adult swim lessons is personal safety. We emphasize the importance of aquatic safety practices, ensuring that you’re not only comfortable in the water but also aware of how to stay safe. This knowledge is invaluable, whether you’re enjoying a day at the beach, boating, or engaging in any water-related activities. 

Stroke Development: Mastering the Techniques 

Our program focuses on developing a variety of swimming strokes, from the basic freestyle and backstroke to more advanced techniques like the butterfly and breaststroke. Mastering these strokes not only enhances your swimming efficiency but also ensures a more enjoyable and varied swimming experience. Our experienced instructors provide personalized guidance, helping you refine your technique and build your swimming prowess. 

Water Sports & Games: Fun and Fitness Combined 

Swimming is not just about laps; it’s also about enjoyment. Our lessons incorporate water sports and games, making learning fun and engaging. These activities are not only enjoyable but also a great way to get a workout, improve your swimming skills, and interact with fellow swimmers. 

Rescue: Learning to Help Others 

An essential part of our adult swim lessons is learning basic rescue techniques. This knowledge is crucial, empowering you to help others in need. While we hope you’ll never have to use these skills, having them can make a significant difference in emergency situations.
