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
