Learn how to swim before summer
TUD Welcome Center offers Swimming Course in English

Be prepared for next summer (Photo: C. Reichert)

As we already announced in our last newsletter, we were approached by some of you asking if we could arrange swimming lessons. And here they are. Due to the limited time slots in Dresden indoor swimming pools, this course can only happen in the beginning of March, so this is a once–in-a-year opportunity for you!

The course will be open for both gender and is designed for non-swimmers and by professional and experienced trainers, who usually work with internationals. The lessons will start in the early morning at 6 a.m. due to the limited spots and to ensure that you can still follow your daily routines. And there is nothing as great as starting your day after having had a refreshing splash in the swimming pool, right?

For the course itself, please make sure you have swimming clothes (hint: for beginners it’s difficult to maneuver in wide clothes), swimming goggles (highly recommended for the exercises), towels and shower utensils with you. For your own safety, we recommend wearing flip-flops inside the swimming hall to avoid slipping. The course times include the time changing into your swimming clothes, so we recommend wearing them underneath your regular clothing to save time before the course.

There will be 3 experienced trainers practicing with you. And be sure, by the end of this course you will be a confident swimmer!
