$10 Swim Lessons? Yes, Please.

Swim Lessons. If you’ve seen the fliers for the upcoming free preview, you may have thought, “Pshhh! So not interested, I already know the basics.” Or “I really need to learn. But there is no way in h-e-double hockey sticks that I’m getting into that water!”

 Whether you fall into these categories, or somewhere in between, I bet CRI Aquatics has a swim lesson plan that meets your skill level. So follow along as I dive in (pun intended) to the swim lesson breakdown:

Here’s how swim lessons work:

First off, the lessons are taught by certified swim instructors so I promise you’ll be in good hands.

If you’re interested in learning how to swim or refining your technique, you will first attend the free preview on September 8th at 6:30 p.m. At the free preview, you will actually get in the water and receive a free lesson. This allows participants to get a feel for what a lesson is structured like and also allows the instructors to evaluate your skill level and place you in the appropriate class level.

There are three basic lesson levels you can possibly be placed into:

  • Beginner
  • Progressive
  • Stroke Refinement                  

The beginner level is for those who have never learned to swim. Many times, swimmers who enter the beginner class may be scared of the water and be apprehensive about even getting in- and that’s okay. The swim instructors will walk you through the entire process with the goal in mind of helping you feel comfortable in the water.

 The next level is the progressive level. This level is for swimmers who have minimal skills. They may be able to float, blow bubbles, or put their head under water.

The third level is stroke refinement, also known as the fine-tuning level. Swimmers in this level know basic swimming strokes. Instructors then work on perfecting known strokes and teaching new ones.

Feel like you don’t fit into any of these categories? Well maybe tailor-made lessons are more your style. The Aquatics Center can form lessons based on your individual needs. Some tailor-made lessons already created include ROTC-based lessons and Triathlon training lessons.

So, after you have attended the free preview and decided to go through with the lessons, you will register and pay- The lessons only cost $10 for 6 lessons. Seriously.

Lessons are taught twice a week for three weeks. The beauty of this schedule is that you get to choose the day and time combination that works best for you. Classes will be offered either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thurs and the time slots to choose from are 6:30 p.m. – 7:15 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. – 8:15 p.m.

So now that I have explained how this whole process works, are you ready to get in the water? If you need a little extra push, you can always check out the swim lessons page  or email James Browning, Aquatics Director, at jjbrowning@georgiasouthern.edu.
