Adult Swimming Lessons (Group)

It's never too late to learn how to swim! Adult swim lessons help participants gain basic aquatics skills and swim strokes, as well as improving proficiency and skill refinement. Participants will also learn skills needed to stay safe in and around the water and how to help themselves and others in an aquatic emergency. Participants can expect to gain confidence in and out of the water and learn in a friendly and safe environment in a small-group setting. Adult swim lessons are for teens 13 and up and adults of all ages. Private and semi-private lessons are also available. Interested in training to be a lifeguard or water safety instructor? Michigan Tech Community Programs periodically offers Red Cross certification classes in both Lifeguard Training and Water Safety Instruction.
