Private Swim Lessons
We are no longer accepting private lessons requests for the 2023 season.
We offer private swim lessons for all ages (youth through adult) that are customized to meet the needs and abilities of the swimmer. Lessons are based on the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim curriculum; a logical, six-level progression that helps swimmers develop water safety, survival, and swimming skills. It is designed to give participants a positive learning experience.
Please submit a private lessons request to be added to our waiting list. This is not a guarantee of lessons. Requests are addressed on a first-come, first-served basis, at which time you will be contacted by one of our instructors with availability to meet your request. Swim Lessons are purchased in 1 hour blocks that can be used/taught in 15, 20, 30 minute sessions – your choice! Payment is not required until lessons have been scheduled.
Please check back for the private lessons request form on May 1, 2024.
