Adult, Private, + Adaptive Lessons

Take the Plunge

Are you an adult looking to swim or improve your stroke? Perhaps you or someone you know — of any age — with a physical or developmental need is looking for swim lessons. Well, the Y can help! We provide adaptive swim lessons for youth and adults, private adult swim instruction, and stroke refinement.

Adaptive Lessons

Individual, 30-minute lessons for people with physical or developmental needs. Students work one-on-one with an instructor. An application must be completed two weeks prior to lesson start date. Contact Jess Lukas, Aquatics Director, at [email protected] or 802-652-8143 for more information.

Cost: $30 per lesson for Members and Non-members

Adult Small Group Lessons

Seven lessons (March 1 – April 12), offered in a small group setting with a maximum of six students per class.

Beginner Adult Swim: Designed for adult swimmers with little to no experience in the water. We will work to help conquer the 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. Tuesdays, 6:15-7:00pm.

Intermediate Adult Swim: 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 and safety skills. Tuesdays, 5:30-6:15pm.

Cost: Member $123 / Non-member $183

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, at [email protected] or 802-652-8143 with questions or to schedule a lesson.

Cost: Member $75 / Non-member $100

Youth Private Lessons

Youth private lessons are designed to give children individualized attention to improve or master their swimming skills. Together, the instructor, guardian, and child determine the goals for the session. Private swim lessons are 30 minutes in length and no make-up lessons are offered. Seven lessons are offered during early spring session, multiple days/times to choose from.
