Millions of frustrated aquaphobics are being given the chance to take back control of their lives and overcome their fear of the water with the launch of a pioneering new course. The UK Academy of Swimming and drowning prevention charity The Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK) have joined forces to launch the specialised Adult Aquaphobia Learning Programme (AALP), which aims to give people confidence and control in the water. Written and created by UK Academy of Swimming and supported by the RLSS UK, AALP is a 12-step progressive programme delivered by swimming professionals to help people who are aquaphobic, weak or non-swimmers to overcome their fear of water.
