Never had a chance when I was a kid. My parents never got me into sports. So now I'm trying to finally accomplish one of my resolutions for this year... Learn how to swim!

Any suggestions/specific place where I can learn how to swim? (with as little embarrassment as possible )

Thanks!

Try a YMCA! Good luck with it, it's a good skill to have.

Not sure what school district you are in, but you can also try Northside Aquatics. I would give you a link, but I am on pretty late and their website is down for updating!

I'm in the Northwest side. Preferably anywhere close to that area is good.

Try the Braundera YMCA. You don't have to be a member to take lessons. I do know they offer adult lessons because my husband and I were looking into them. The classes are relatively inexpensive, as well.

San Antonio - Northside ISD Aquatics

This is the info for Northside Aquatics. I believe both locations (1604 & 410) will be offering lessons over the summer. They do have adult lessons also.

HTH,

My husband was an instructor of the NISD Aquatics and he had a few adults in the evening classes he taught. He had some adults that were terrified of getting in the water so don't think you are alone in learning to swim at this age. Don't give up, it takes awhile to learn but once you do you don't forget! And if you have any issues in finding a good class let me know, I can hook you up with an instructor for private lessons.

Thanks everyone! I'll probably go with the YMCA program. The class is longer so I'm hoping that should give me time to actually learn how to swim.

Go to the pool as often as possible. Don't think that just going once or twice a week for lessons will get you there, it won't. Practice on your own as often as possible!
