Private Swim Lessons

  • Private lessons are a good way to help swimmers focus on a particular skill or to help overcome a fear of the water.
  • The instructor works one-on-one with participants at times convenient for both parties. These lessons are designed for any age or skill level.
  • Let your instructor know what you hope to achieve from your lesson(s). Your instructor will plan lesson(s) accordingly to help your swimmer reach their goal.
  • All private swim lessons are 30 minutes in length.
  • Payment is due on the day of the lesson(s). Payment is given directly to your instructor.
