At Safety Before Skill, we use the proven Miracle Swimming Methodology to eliminate the fear of water first, then we learn the fundamentals of swimming.

Adults have two options for swim instruction: Group Class or Private Lessons.

1. Group Class

Are you peer- motivated? Want to learn with friends?

The Aquatic Attitude group class offers small group classes for adults. The class is divided into Beginner and Advanced and is 45 minutes long, meeting once weekly. The first 30 minutes includes instruction and the last 15 minutes is open for practice, with supervision from the coach. We offer a 1:3 coach to student ratio.

2. Private Lessons

Do you prefer more privacy? Want to make the most of your time in the water with a customized plan?

Private Lessons are available on an A La Carte basis or on a weekly recurring basis. For a recurring package, please call us at 501-940-1287 so we can make sure you are booked with the right coach.
