Private Lessons

Individualized Lessons for Children and Adults

Upper Valley Aquatic Center offers Private Swim Lessons for children and adults of all abilities. They are a great solution for individuals who want to refine skills or who have an extreme fear of the water.

About Our Program

  • Our instructors progress slowly, helping the swimmer adjust to the water at a comfortable pace.
  • Breath control and balance are the foundatations for a comfortable swimmer.
  • Repetition makes new skills permanent.
  • Swimmers advance when skills are mastered.
  • From blowing bubbles to swimming all four competitive strokes, swimmers are rewarded for their efforts every stroke of the way!
  • When comfortable with swim lessons, the swimmer may choose to move to a group class.

"Our 5 year old daughter has been taking swim lessons at UVAC since she was 4 1/2. We have been amazed at how quickly she responded to the techniques used in the swim program. All of the instructors are enthusiastic, friendly and well-trained. We are so grateful to have such an incredible swim facility and program close by - it has truly made a difference for all of us."
