Adult Aquatic Wellness & Lessons

Here at the Y, adults can take the plunge into better health, too! Join us for one or more of our many aqua aerobics, stroke improvement or instruction programs—or even create your own swim set!

In addition to the programs listed below, both our Lap Pool and our Program Pool include many open swim opportunities.

Adult Small Group Swim Lessons — Just Added!

These will be a set of seven lessons (November 2 – December 14), offered in a small group setting with a maximum of six students per class.

Beginner Adult Swim:  This class is designed for adult swimmers with little to no experience in the water. We will work to help adults conquer their fear of swimming and introduce basic concepts of stroke technique and water safety. The majority of this class takes place in the shallow end of the pool.

Class meets Tuesdays, 6:15-7:00pm.

Intermediate Adult Swim:  This class is for adult swimmers who feel comfortable in the water and are looking to improve technique and learn new strokes. This class covers more advanced, deep-end skills such as diving, treading water, and fitness swimming along with continued stroke technique. As with all of our classes we include important safety skills.

Class meets Tuesdays, 5:30-6:15pm.



Swim Stroke Refinement Using Underwater Video

During this 45 minute session in the lap pool a coach will help you to identify changes to improve your swim stroke(s) using a submersible iPad. Underwater video will be taken and reviewed to provide immediate and detailed stroke feedback. After the lesson the video will be emailed to you with voiced over feedback related to the lesson. Contact Jess Lukas, Aquatics Director, by phone at (802) 652-8143 or by email at with questions or to schedule a lesson.
