Swim lessons starting soon.

Three summer sessions of VAC group swim lessons will be offered for the 2015 season.  Sign up here:


8 lessons for $60. Each session is Monday - Thursday 10:30-11 AM for 2 weeks.



  • Session 1: June 22 - July 2
  • Session 2: July 6 - July 16
  • Session 3: July 20 - July 30





Students per group are limited. Four skilled coaches from the swim team will be the instructors for the sessions.


Maxine Daniels (lifetime VAC member and Asst head coach) will manage the lessons. Questions: find Maxine at the pool every morning or follow the signup link (above) to see her email addr 


Please sign up and bring payment (check made out to VAC Swim Team, child name on memo please or cash) to first day of lessons. Maxine will collect payment.


If private lessons are something you want, inquire directly with any VAC coach or ask Maxine for guidance as to which coach/instructor would best fit your child and schedule. Private lessons vary but are typically $20-$30 (or more) per 30 minutes, dependent upon the instructor coach. Payment for this is done directly with the instructor coach.

Lease List Changes

Posted by rickkwilhelm on August 29, 2015 at 6:40 AM Comments comments (0)

As always, the end of the pool season is the time for the opening of the VAC lease list for the next pool year. This year we are doing things a little differently than we have in the past.

Usually we open the lease list to everyone at midnight on the day after the pool closes (this year 12:00am Sept 8 2015)  

For those families that leased for the full summer of 2015, the Summer 2016 lease list opens at 12:00am Sept 8 2015.

For everyone else, the lease list opens one week later at 12:00am Sept 15 2015


If you are not a current 2015 full summer lease holder, then any application submitted prior to 12:00am Sep 15 2015 will be ignored, and your early submission will not receive a response.

Please note that August pass holders are not 2015 lease holders and thus are not eligible to sign up at 12:00am Sep 8 2015.  August pass holders need to wait until 12:00am Sep 15, 2015.


Please submit your lease application to


Again, for current 2015 full summer lease holders, the list opens at midnight on September 8, 2015.  For all other applicants the list opens on September 15, 2015


Lease priority will be in order of receipt, but because of the variable number of leases available from year to year, even current lease holder applicants cannot be guaranteed a lease for 2016
