There are parent-baby swimming lessons for babies from 2 months old, but these are mainly to get your kid used to the water. But at which age should a child learn how to swim with the help of lessons?
It is recommended that kids around the age of 4 years start with swimming lessons to learn the basics. However, parents should decide whether their child is ready for it or not, because for some kids it might be better to start a little later.
There is no age limit as to when you can or should learn how to swim. Even as a teenager or adult, you can still take swimming lessons.
There are adult swimming lessons that are offered by many swim schools in Dublin, including SwimCamp, as it is quite common for people to learn how to swim later in life. Maybe you never had the chance to swim as a child and therefore never learned it.
It is clear that swimming is an essential skill that everyone should learn at some point in life. It is better late than never!
You want to book swim lessons but are wondering how many you even need? In general, it can be said that adults learn how to swim faster than children.
It is not easy to say how many hours someone needs to master the basics, as everybody is different and learns at a different pace. The time you need is influenced by many aspects such as your fitness, the swim instructor or the group environment.
It can be said that adults master the basics of swimming in around 20 hours of swimming lessons. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you should only take 20 hours of swimming lessons. You can continue and improve your technique to swim more efficiently depending on what you want to achieve with the adult swimming lessons.
How long children need to learn to swim cannot be said, but definitely more than 20 hours of swim lessons. If your kid is scared of the water, it will take longer, as they first have to get used to being in water and gain water confidence.
Private swimming lessons usually are around 30 minutes long. The teacher can focus fully on the swimmer during the whole lesson, therefore they can be shorter than group lessons in some cases.
The cost of private lessons is of course more expensive than group classes. In Ireland, private adult lessons often cost between €40 and €80. For children, it is a bit cheaper, with around €20 to €30 per lesson.
Comparing this to the cost of group courses, which are often between €20 and €30 per lesson, you notice a big difference. However, there are many benefits to private classes that you don’t get with group classes.
Therefore, it might make sense for some people to spend more money on private classes to profit from these benefits.
We know that private classes are more expensive than group classes, but does it really make sense to spend more money for it?
It really depends on the swimmer. If you are scared of the water and swimming, then private classes can definitely be a good option for you. The swim teacher can focus on you and guide you in your journey. This can be more difficult in a group, because there are several swimmers and only one coach.
The actual time you swim will be higher during a private lesson, as you don’t have to wait for the other swimmers’ turns. There is more waiting during group lessons, so you get less time to practice swimming.
Another advantage of private lessons is that it is adapted to your needs and to your performance. In a group, it happens that some are more advanced than others, so they are held back by the others and can’t progress as quickly.
Basically, you will learn how to swim a lot faster with private classes. This means that you need less private courses than group courses, and the cost in the end is similar.
Therefore, private swimming lessons are worth it, and it is a good investment. Knowing how to swim is an essential life skill and important to stay safe. We can tell you that swimming lessons are necessary and always worth it.
You cannot really say that one is better than the other, because it depends on the needs of each swimmer.
Some need the social interaction with other swimmers that is only given in a group setting. Getting to meet new people, socializing and motivating each other. Group classes can be more fun and less boring than private classes.
However, there might be swimmers that get distracted during group classes and don’t learn well in this environment. Then, of course, private classes are beneficial for the swimmer.
Private classes are also better for scared swimmers that have water phobia or are very unsure of themselves in the water. Getting the full attention of the coach is in this case very valuable to progress quicker and gain water confidence.
