An overview of the Aqualetics swimming school offer

Aqualetics is the new swimming school in Basel and Birsfelden. We offer a wide range of programs for children and adults. These include swimming lessons for children and adolescents, built according to the Swiss Swimming Kids System. For adults, our offer includes courses tailored to each skill level. From the reduction of fear of deep water to the advanced cure course. Also in the field of aquafit our team has great competence. We offer a wide range of aquafitness courses in both shallow and deep water.

Our range of children’s swimming lessons

Swimming is a wonderful sport for children. He trains the whole body without burdening the body in development. Knowing that one’s own child can safely swim is an extremely reassuring feeling for parents. However, communicating swimming skills is not easy. Swimming is easy – if you master the technique properly. Aqualetics is therefore setting up its swimming lessons program on the Swiss Swimming training system in its swimming school. We teach in a program specially tailored to children. This consists of a 3-level basic system, Basic, Advanced and Specific.

The courses that are part of the basic part deal with pedagogically careful water habituation and then playfully convey the technical basics in different swimming techniques. Beginning with the right technique in the kick of the leg, skills in the back and crawl will gradually be conveyed.

In the Advanced section, these techniques are further deepened. There is the opportunity to learn technical sophisticated swimming styles such as dolphin or the turnaround. Please note that we currently teach the advanced courses in cooperation with the team of the swimming pool Birsfelden.

adult swimming lessons

We also offer a high-quality program for adults in the Basel area and Birsfelden. We have two main focuses. On the one hand the water habituation and the mediation of the basic techniques, on the other hand competence courses in breaststroke, crawl swimming and backstroke.

Our water-getting lessons are designed for people who are not yet able to swim as adults. Adults lack the ease with which children acquire swimming. Here we provide assistance with our experienced trainers. In a safe environment, adult swim beginners learn to reduce fear in the water. On top of that comes the teaching of the basics of locomotion in the water. These include proper breathing, gliding in the water and the basics in the back and crawl.

Our additional course offer is aimed at adults who, although they can swim in principle, but want a refinement of their swimming technique. Swimming is a sport in which small improvements and changes in the style of swimming lead to great progress in swimming fun, endurance and speed. We ask you dedicated courses in chest, back and front swimming. In the Kraulkurs we also offer several advanced courses.

Our range of Aquafitness courses

In addition to our offer of swimming lessons, we also offer the opportunity to make the body fit in aquafitness courses at the Birsfelden swimming pool. There are courses in shallow and deep water available. Aquafit offers the perfect opportunity to be gentle and yet intensively athletic. In addition to the normal courses, we also have specialized courses in the program. These include our popular MoMoMo course (from chubby, for chubby, on Monday), courses that are particularly demanding in sports and those with the opportunity to relax and drop.

Further offers in the Competence Center Aqualetics

In addition to the above program, we also offer early swimming for people who want to be active in the water early in the morning, private lessons for personalized lessons and even rental of water areas for special events.
