This group is suitable for those who have taken a series of lessons with Mediterra. It is intended for those who have studied with one of our coaches and are now familiar with the skills, drills, and terminology that is used extensively in the practice group sessions. Adult swimmers – male and female, younger and older, slower and faster, fit and getting in shape – are warmly welcomed.

We are pleased to gently work with those who may feel strong fear or anxiety in the water. We recommend that you start first with a private lesson or with our Pool Comfort course to experience our method for removing that stress from your water experience.
