Welcome to VAST Swim School!

Welcome to Valdosta Aquatics Swim School at the Stone Creek Golf Club.  We are a year-round lessons program that builds the skill levels of all swimmers from beginners to advanced, from children to adults.  With lessons inside during the cold of fall and winter and outdoors during the warmth spring and summer, we have the facilities and expertise to help any swimmer improve through every season!

Basic Skills
All new students begin with safety and survival skills. As a student progresses, the individual lessons adapt to needs of the swimmer though all the basic skills and into stroke lessons.
Format: One-on-one instruction
Lesson Time: 15 minutes 4 days per week
Session Length: Two weeks
Cost: $150* (+$25 registration for new swimmers) 
 
A  one-on-one, 15-minute lesson engages the swimmer in learning of motor skills and movement patterns immediately upon entry in the water. This helps the swimmer move quickly through our progression of skills towards stroke lessons based on the needs and pacing of the swimmer. Additionally, for those swimmers who need more confidence with swim lessons or in the water in general, the almost daily interaction in the pool is a quicker way to reduce stress and crying at swim lessons. In all, we believe this is the best way to teach swimmers the basic skills and water safety. 
 
Stroke Lessons
After completing the basic skills lessons, swimmers begin stroke lessons building their endurance (more safety) and learning freestyle and backstroke skills.
Format: small group instruction (no more than four swimmers per instructor)
Lesson Time: 30 minutes 2 days per week
Session Length: Two weeks
Cost: $100* (+$25 registration for new swimmers)
 
After completing the basic skills lessons, swimmers are ready for group lessons. These lessons are high-paced practice focused on long-axis strokes. Swimmers will learn body position (level), kicking (legs), arm movement (levers), proper breathing and basic competitive swimming skills like starts and turns. This muli-level curriculum strengthens endurance, confidence and fun in the water!
