The beauty of private swim lessons is that you get to choose when you want your swim lessons to take place! Private lessons are available to swimmers of all ages and swimming abilities. Private lessons provide an opportunity for your instructor to work with you one-on-one based on your individual needs and abilities. Whether you’re trying to conquer your fear of putting your head underwater, want to learn how to float on your back, or are interested in developing endurance and stroke technique, we can help! Packages are available!

Semi-Private Swim Lessons
Just like private swim lessons, with semi-private swim lessons, you and your buddy get to choose when you want your lesson to take place. Semi-private swim lessons are available to swimmers of all ages and swimming abilities in groups of 2-3. These lessons are perfect for siblings, couples, cousins, neighbors and friends who want to learn to swim together in a more individualized setting than traditional lessons offer. Whether you’re trying to conquer your fear of putting your head underwater, want to learn how to float on your back, or are interested in developing endurance and stroke technique, we can help! Packages are available. See below for details.
