Adult Swimming Lessons | Watford | St Helen's Enterprises

Adult Swimming Lessons

It is never too late to learn to swim, or improve your technique. Our adult swimming lessons cater for all levels of swimmer, from beginners and improvers through to our masters class.

Swimming at St Helen’s is designed to develop essential aquatic skills needed to be confident, competent and safe in the water. Our instructors will ensure that whatever your age or ability, learning to swim can be fun as well as practical.

Swim lessons for beginners and improvers

Our beginners lessons are ideal for those with little or no prior swimming knowledge or ability, and our improvers classes are available for those who have progressed to become more confident or experienced in the water. The teacher will be in the water for both of these classes.

Lessons for swimming masters

Our masters class is a great opportunity to continue your swimming in a fun and structured session. To help keep you motivated and to further develop your swimming fitness, each session will consist of a variation of drills, aquatic skills and fitness.
