Adult Learn to Swim
April ALTS Community Lessons
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 37 percent of adults in the United States are unable to swim the length of a swimming pool. That's more than 1 in 3 adults who are at a greater risk of becoming one of the ten adults who drown in the United States every day. YWCA Greater Lafayette and iSWIM Masters are working together to bring low-cost swim lessons to all adults in the Greater Lafayette area.
During the month of April, the YWCA will be donating pool time to swimmers from iSWIM Masters, a local United States Masters Swimming club, for the express purpose of teaching adults in Tippecanoe County the basics of swimming. Adult group lessons will be held Thursday mornings and Thursday evenings in April. A $10 registration fee will be due at the first lesson. Participants will receive a complimentary swim cap and pair of goggles.
In addition to one instructor-led lesson per week, ALTS participants will have access to the YWCA pool Monday- Friday 8:30 am - 7:00 pm in order to practice skills learned during lessons.Adult Learn to Swim Month Community Lessons

The YWCA is partnering with iSwim, an adult swim club, to offer group learn to swim lessons for adults. Adult lessons will be offered in small groups, focusing on life-saving skills as well as building swimming skills for fitness. If you've ever wanted to learn to swim, be comfortable in the water, or swim for fitness or triathlon, this is the perfect opportunity!
Participants will have one coached lesson per week by a United States Masters Swimming coach or instructor, as well as a membership to the YWCA pool to practice skills in between coached lessons.
