UNIS Aquatics Academy (UAA)
The purpose of United Nations International School of Hanoi academies is to provide additional specialised instruction to UNIS Hanoi students in support of our curricular and co-curricular programmes. Additionally, UNIS Hanoi academies provide options for our parents, faculty, and staff to improve their skill set in their chosen activity. In some cases UNIS Hanoi academies extend programme options out to the greater community.
UNIS Aquatics Academy provides a wide range of swimming programmes for members of the UNIS community as well as the wider Hanoi community. For UNIS Hanoi students, swim lessons and competitive swimming are offered after school. Through the Community Programme, lessons and competitive swimming for adults and students are offered to the Hanoi community. The Aquatics Academy promotes safe and enjoyable swim opportunities taught and coached by well trained instructors.
Outdoor activities and swimming lessons may be modified or cancelled in case of inclement weather (e.g high AQI, high heat index, storm, lightning). The pool will be closed if there is lightning within 16km, if the AQI is 201 or more and the Heat Index is above 54. Please carefully review our Heat Level Action Chart, Heat Index Consideration for Swimming Pool and visit our live AQI/ HEAT INDEX PAGE for up to date UNIS readings. Please make sure to check prior to your UNIS-based activity as cancelled lessons will not be published.
For any cancelled lessons due to weather, swimmers may join another group of same ability at another time during the week. Make up lessons may also be arranged subject to the availability of the instructor and calendar permitting.
