Swim Lessons

Kids love swimming. Set them up for success with swim lessons at UVA. Our small class sizes give each kid individual instruction to help them succeed. If you are looking for youth swim lessons in Charlottesville, look no further.
This program is far superior to that offered by --- in our experience. My child looks forward to class every week and is not afraid to push her comfort level. It’s been so great watching her have fun and respect the water at the same time. I can’t thank the instructors and program enough.
This is the second year we have done UVA Youth Swim lessons and we couldn't be happier! We aim to do this every spring session and we can't wait for next year! Thank you!
