Private Lessons
Private swim lessons offer one-on-one instruction for all ages and all abilities.  These lessons are 30 minutes long and can generally be scheduled any day the pool is open. Private swim lessons are available for children and adults who would like an individual instruction to further their swimming ability and/or for those who cannot fit into our regularly scheduled lessons.  Instruction is based on the student's ability. Private or semi-private swim lessons allow the participant to work at a personalized level to achieve swim goals. Private swim lessons are a good way to help swimmers focus on a particular skill, or to help overcome a fear of the water. Participants can set up times that are convenient for them.
