Swimming

We have Intermediate & Advanced Swimming Lessons on Friday mornings at 7:15am and Friday evenings at 8:30pm. There are beginner lessons on Friday Evenings at 7:45pm. There are two levels catered for in the beginner lessons: Non-swimmers and beginners/improvers. These levels are explained further below.

All lessons are 45mins in duration and are held in the Tralee Sports Complex. There is no additional cost for entry to the pool. Our club swimming coach is John Edwards (Wild Water Adventures, Kingdom Swimming Club coach, Safety Officer with Tralee Bay Swimming Club). John is a fully qualified swimming coach and lifeguard.

All current lessons are sold out. Contact the club if you are interested in joining future blocks of swimming lessons.

Intermediate & Advanced Swimming lessons: These lessons are for athletes who can comfortably swim multiple lengths. The lanes in these lessons are split by speed of swimmers. The aim of these lessons are to improve technique, and increase distance and speed. This is done through instruction and drills to perfect specific areas of technique and build power, endurance and speed. These classes are not for non-swimmers or for beginners/improvers.

Beginner Swimming lessons: There are two levels within this class

Beginner Improvers: These lessons are for athletes who can manage to swim a length or two.

Beginner Swimming lessons for Non Swimmers: These lessons are for athletes who cannot swim. If you can’t swim a length of a pool, can’t do the breathing, afraid of the deep end or are afraid of water. These lessons are for you.
