I'm an adult non-swimmer, having not been taught when I was a kid (I'm not sure how that happened, both my siblings learned!) Every summer I say that I'm going to learn to swim, because I feel like I can't enjoy myself when the kids go to the pool, or go to the water park. If something were to happen to them, I couldn't even try and intervene. This summer I decided to fix that. My local municipal pool doesn't provide any swimming instruction for adults (I was hoping for private lessons), but it turns out the pool's Assistant Manager has taught adults before so I signed up directly with him and my first lesson is on Wednesday. My hope is to do 3 lessons a week (except this week since I had a conflict) until I have a base of skills strong enough that I can join a group class at the Y (which is about a 45 minute drive, but is offered in the evenings.) Anyone else learned to swim as an adult?
