Coached Classes in Your Area

Adultswimedinburgh 76 (1)

These adult coached sessions called Skills and Drills and Powerswim are available in local facilities around the country. There are different session types available depending on your ability and level of fitness: 

Skills and Drills

These group sessions are suitable for able recreational swimmers who would like to improve their technique and fitness through learning new skills and drills. They are ideal for those wishing to improve their front crawl breathing or perhaps work on one of their weaker strokes.  If you would like to get more out of your swimming sessions or are perhaps training for a participation event or triathlon then these sessions are ideal for you.  They will help you to get more out of your swimming in an encouraging and social environment.  Sessions generally last between 30 to 45 minutes.


These group sessions are suitable for more able, intermediate or advanced swimmers looking for a more challenging workout. They are ideal for improving your swimming technique, learning to use swimming equipment and developing your swimming fitness. Sessions generally range from 30 minute lunchtime sessions to 1 hour evening sessions.

Adult Swim Classes

This class is designed especially for those who would like some help and advice on their swimming technique and confidence in the water. Whether you are a complete beginner or would like to improve on your swimming, we aim to help you reach your goals while helping  you to feel comfortable too. The adult swim classes are delivered weekly and the course block must be booked in advance. 

Adult Beginners
To introduce adults to the swimming pool environment, where they can learn the core aquatic skills & early introduction to basic stroke techniques. This is a private session held out with public swimming times.

Adult Improvers
To introduce more advanced stroke techniques across numerous strokes, to aid swimming competence across further distances. This is a private session held out with public swimming times.
