Abstract: Purpose. Swimming is a worldwide sport. However, its teaching-learning process is mainly centered on style, leaving aside the most essential phase - the adaptation. The aim of this paper is to describe experience gained within the Learning to Swim Project (LSP), a teaching and research initiative at Physical Education Faculty/UNICAMP, based on consideration of the adaptation process and on teaching through movements and easy execution. Basic procedures. Each class lasts 60 min, twice a week and is divided into three stages: warming up, main session, and relaxation. Even the main session is composed of specific exercises such as the control of the body, floating and propulsion, among others, without abandoning the adaptation principles. The classes include educational and corrective exercises and games. The program is very flexible, and varies according to the assimilation capacity of the students. Main findings and conclusions. The results indicate that our approach can be considered efficient, since it promotes a fast and adequate learning process.
