Adult Learn-to-Swim

This free swim program is for adults with limited or no prior swimming experience. Learn basic water safety and beginning swim skills in a fun, safe environment. 



We have received a USA Swimming Foundation Adult Learn To Swim Grant which will help us put on our 2024 ALTS program! Details about our program will be posted soon!


Adult Learn-to-Swim Program

Marin Aquatic Masters certified Adult Learn-to-Swim instructors and volunteers will be offering FREE Adult Learn-to-Swim Lessons (ALTS).


This year we will offer 3 separate sessions of free adult learn to swim lessons. These lessons are for adults (over 18) who have limited to no swimming ability.  


The classes are led by certified adult learn to swim instructors and a team of experienced in water volunteers.  

Our instructors and volunteers are very experienced, patient and understanding and our goal is to teach basic life saving and swimming skills.  

The program will cover:

  • relaxed breathing basics

  • front and back float, glide and kick

  • freestyle with breathing

  • deep water entry/exit

  • treading water

  • other swim strokes

Complete the registration form to secure your space.  


Sessions will be filled in the order we receive registrations.  There will be a $25 registration fee to hold your place for this very popular class which will fill up quickly.

For all sessions, we will hold an informational/registration class on May 2nd at 6:00 pm.


Participants from all Sessions are encouraged to come to this meeting to complete registration forms, meet your instructors, ask questions, learn how to use goggles and caps, and to see a demonstration of the skills we will be covering in the program.

Following the Adult Learn to Swim classes, you will have the opportunity to join our masters team and build upon the skills you learn in this program.  Joining our team will require a USMS membership.  We will offer low cost beginning masters swim classes to all 2024 ALTS program graduates.

* Please note:  This ALTS program is not a technique class for adults who can already swim across the pool but want to improve their skills.  Please contact us for other opportunities to improve your swimming.
