Specialized Group Instruction for Adults and Teens +14

Adult Beginner Lessons

If you have never learned to swim, our Beginner Lessons would be best. Class takes place in our Warm Water Pool until the class is comfortable enough to work in the Competition Pool. If you are fearful of getting into a deep pool or cannot swim 50 yards freestyle, this is the place for you. If you are still learning to swim several laps at at time, the Advanced Beginner Swim is recommended for you.

What some new swimmers had to say…

“Just wanted to let you know how much I loved the adult beginners swim classes. It took a mini freak-out moment during a Caribbean snorkeling excursion to realize I should probably learn to swim and be comfortable in deep water. I now feel comfortable and know I can be safe in the water.”

“I had a fear of swimming for several years until I enrolled in the adult learn to swim lessons at UVAC. The swim instructors were super friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. With a group of fellow learners, learning to swim was a lot of fun! I never thought I’d enjoy swimming so much or be able to swim unsupervised, thank you so much UVAC for helping me overcome the fear!”

“I completed two sessions and am now enrolled in the Masters class with Barbara. Although I don’t plan to enter any meets or swim competitively, I do hope to become a distance swimmer one day.”
