Which swimming class is best for me?
With a huge number of academies and freelance instructors offering lessons on swimming in Dubai, this might leave you with the daunting job of deciding which is best for you. Here are some factors that you might want to consider during your search journey:
1. Student-to-Teacher Ratio
If you’re someone who wants to learn to swim best while enjoying the social factor and lower price of a group swimming class, then you might want to consider a class with a maximum of 5:1 student-to-teacher ratio, ideally at 3:1. This ensures you get adequate attention from your instructor.
Complete beginners might want to start with private lessons which will provide them with 1-on-1 instruction in an environment where they will feel safe to make mistakes without fear of being judged by others.
2. Qualified Swimming Coach
Your swimming coach plays a crucial role in your learning process. He/She must have the proper certification and experience in teaching to facilitate easy learning, provide the right motivation, and ensure your safety while delivering adequate instruction. And since this type of information might not be readily available to you before booking with a specific swimming school on your own, skilldeer has got your back here. We only partner with reputable swim academies and certified swimming instructors with relevant years of teaching experience in the sport.
3. Schedule Flexibility
How strict can you commit to your class schedule? This is one of the factors you should consider before choosing a class. Group swimming lessons would require you to stick to certain timings from 2-5 times a week and only gives a grace period of a couple of days in case you missed a class. But if you like “at-your-pace” lessons with full schedule flexibility, private lessons can be arranged at your and your coach’s most convenient time, which is also easier to reschedule when you miss a class.
What shall I expect to learn?
What you will learn depends largely on your goal and current skill level. Swimming for beginners, for instance, will start with building water confidence, breathing, floating and basic strokes such as front crawl and backstroke. Intermediate swimmers, on the other hand, will focus more on new strokes such as butterfly and breaststroke and improving their stamina for longer swims. Advanced swimmers who train for competitions will have specialized and more rigorous training, which may require them to stick to a stricter schedule. Basic safety and emergency measures will also be taught to students of any skill level.
Don’t know what your skill level is? Don’t worry as your coach will conduct a swimming assessment on your first day of the training to make sure you get the right training program.
Can I find ladies-only classes?
Sure, you can! Our swimming classes for ladies in Dubai are administered by qualified female coaches with professional certificates, with your choice of group or private classes. Classes would be held in pools that are restricted to females only so that you don’t have to worry about your privacy or fear there will be men around.
What is the best age to start learning swimming?
Infants as young as 3 months up to 2 years old can start with parent-assisted baby swimming lessons. This is an introductory program that will help babies become comfortable in the water and slowly develop their floating and submerging skills within a safe environment. Swimming lessons for babies also serve as a gentle exercise for their body, helping to improve their muscle, lung, and heart development. What’s more, it’s a fun bonding activity for parents and their little munchkins!
Swimming classes for kids can be started at the age of 3 where they will be taught with actual swimming skills that suit their age and ability. Toddlers will be introduced to floating, proper breathing, and swimming within a short distance while older kids will learn freestyle swimming, jumping in the water, and holding their breath longer underwater. If your kid is athletic and interested to join compete in the sport, there are also special training programs for both individual swimming and synchronized swimming competitions.
Learning how to swim at a young age teaches kids an important life skill that will help them avoid water-related emergencies such as drowning. So, wait no more and start them young!
Do you have classes offered at an indoor pool?

Before booking the class, check the description and see if the class is offered in an enclosed venue.

What if there is no class offered at my location?
