Millions of adult Americans - by some estimates over 30 Million, cannot swim. Many of these non-swimmers were raised by non-swimming parents who passed on their fears of swimming onto their children. Some may have had a near drowning experience, and since that time, kept a safe distance from the water. For many, economic disadvantage prevented them from enjoying the sport of swimming. For some kids, (and adults) self-perception of appearance in a swimsuit was enough to keep them out of the water.
In 2009, the American Red Cross conducted a Water Safety Poll. This poll had many questions about water recreation. One question in particular asked was "How well can you swim?"
1/3 of respondents rated their swimming skills as Fair, Poor or Cannot Swim at All. This is an alarming statistic, and not just from a personal or public safety perspective. Non-swimmers are missing out on a world of fun, exercise and togetherness in the water.
And children from non-swimming households are eight times as likely to be at-risk of drowning.
Is it easy for adults to learn how to swim? Probably not, just as learning a language as an adult is more difficult than as a child.
But it can be done.
Most adults can learn basic swimming skills in as little as 2-3 lessons....but many want to continue to learn, and we are here to help you achieve your goals.
