Auburn Racquet & Fitness Club is unique in offering year-round Private & Semi-Private swim lessons. Private swim lessons are available for both adults and children. Our warm, 86-degrees temperature, bubble-enclosed pool, allows us to offer swim lessons throughout the year.
Lessons are available for all ages and skill levels. Adult lessons will cater to each swimmers goals, whether that goal is to learn proper swimming strokes, fine tune stroke techniques, learn flip turns, or help with breath control.
Adult lessons have helped many swimmers gain confidence in the water, incorporate lap swimming into their fitness regimen, or train for open water and other swimming competitions.
Come meet our professionally trained staff of instructors, who are certified in CPR and first aid. With our knowledge and passion for safe swimming, your child will react with readiness to "self rescue" in a short period of time! Call Emily at ex #107 if you have any questions.
Teach Your Child to Swim!
There are many reasons why parents should invest in Swim Lessons for their children. The main reason is that swimming is the only sport that can save your child's life. Drowning is still one of the most common accidental deaths in children, so being able to swim is an essential life-saving skill. Other reasons why your child should learn to swim...it's fun; it offers a social setting; and it's a great source of exercise. Swimming keeps the heart and lungs healthy, and it improves endurance, flexibility, balance, and posture. Not only does swimming provide life skills, social skills and health benefits, it also offers challenges and rewards, which builds self-confidence. Swimming is an overall win-win. So, get your kiddos in the pool!
Swim Tip: Long arms close to the head and body are not the only aspect of an efficient backstroke. The body rotation is key. To practice, try this drill. Three right-arm-only backstroke pulls; three left-arm-only backstroke pulls; and three alternating regular backstroke arm pulls. Watch for an open hand all the way to entering the water. Keep your arms straight and close to the head. Feel the opposite shoulder rotate up towards the surface of the water as the opposite arms enters the water catching it and pushing it towards the feet.
