eSWIM offers private swim classes for swimmers who need individual advice and tuition.  eSWIM also offers group classes for those wanting to improve their swimming fitness and train in a non-competitive and friendly environment.  All classes are conducted at HBF Stadium (formerly Challenge) (click here for our map).
Just look on the pool allocation board for which pool your class is in or ask at reception on your way through.

Please contact Elena if you are interested in arranging a private lesson or attending a group class.  You will need to complete the Enrolment Form  before you attend your first class or lesson.

What to Bring

All swimmers will need to provide their own training equipment for all lessons and classes as follows:

  • Goggles
  • Fins 
  • Kick board
  • Pull buoy if you have one
  • Water bottle

If you need to purchase these items you can get them from sporting shops and online at swim suppliers such as Aqua Shop.  A few tips when purchasing your equipment:

Goggles                                                                                                                                                        

This is a very personal decision as goggles have to feel comfortable and fit the shape of your face.  The best way to find out whether a specific pair of goggles is the right shape or fit is to put the eye pieces on without the strap around your head and if they stay on your face for at least 3-5 seconds then they’re a good fit.  Some people prefer the larger mask-type goggles which provide good vision and tend not to leave raccoon marks around your eyes.  If you usually wear glasses or contact lenses it is possible to get prescription goggles and they are worth investing in as it will make your swimming experience a whole lot more enjoyable if you can see where you’re going.  

 

Fins

For beginner swimmers it is best to get fins that have a longer blade.  Scuba fins are too long and the short training fins are not long enough.  Try to get something like this:

Kick board

Any lightweight streamlined kick board will be fine.  Don’t get the most expensive board you can but get one that suits your size. If you’re petite there’s no point getting a giant kickboard!

If you have other equipment such as pull buoys and hand paddles then you can also bring these to your sessions.
