Our adult classes work on the basic principles of teaching freestyle. Classes run for 45 minutes and are held in the indoor 20-metre pool.

The number of students in our learn to swim classes is as follows:

  • Learn to Swim: 7 maximum
  • Stroke Correction: 8 maximum

We offer the following adult learn to swim programs:

Adult learn to swim - beginner

This class is for people who:

  • Are non-swimmers
  • Are unable to exhale under water or are unable to put face in water
  • Have no water confidence
  • Cannot float
  • Unable to propel through water
  • Have a fear of water or have had a previous bad experience

Adult learn to swim - intermediate

This class is for people who:

  • Are able to submerge under water
  • Have some swimming experience
  • Can propel through water with a rudimentary breaststroke or freestyle
  • Have a little water experience
  • Can propel through the water for 5-10 metres

Adult stroke correction

If you are tired of being slow or having to rest every fifty metres this class is for you. Our instructors will analyse your stroke and give you advice on how to correct it by using drills that will improve your style as well as help to increase fitness and endurance.

The main focus at this level is on the freestyle stroke. Most participants will be aiming to improve breathing, stroke efficiency, and stamina. Other strokes can be explored and developed if the group is willing and capable to move forward.

Many elementary skills will be revisited to ensure the basics of body position, breathing, floating, and recovery have been mastered by the group.

Adult Stroke Correction is for adults who have basic stroke and breathing skills and can swim approximately 50 metres freestyle without stopping.

Classes commence in the indoor 20 metre pool, to cater for quality practice rather than quantity in the early stages. As the group progresses, classes can move to the outdoor pool to lengthen and challenge students as they show readiness.

Adult swim-fit

This class is for people who:

  • Are ‘not so confident squad’ swimmers
  • Are able to swim at least 200m of freestyle non-stop

The sessions aim to extend swimmer's strength and endurance, develop more confidence, achieve personal goals, and create good lifestyle habits (and maybe get a little addicted along the way!).

Swimmers can use this squad to help them make the transition to adult squad classes.

Flippers, pull buoys, and hand paddles are required for this squad. Swimmers can join at any time.

This squad swims:

  • Tuesday and Thursday, 7-8pm

Casual entry or decrement passes can be purchased.

Adult squad

The Adult Squad is designed for advanced swimmers who are able to swim 2km or more. Most sessions cover between 3km-4km.

The Adult Squad at LPAC caters to those who enjoy swimming and wish to do so for fitness or enjoyment, as well as providing challenging sets for triathletes, ocean swimmers, and masters swimmers.

Flippers, pull buoy, and hand paddles are required for this squad. Swimmers can join at any time. Please visit our squads page for more information about adult squads.
