Private Swim Lessons

These lessons are for those individuals who are interested in one-on-one instruction. We also hold semi-private swim lessons for groups of 2-3. Sessions are 30 minutes long. Participants should bring a towel and wear a swimsuit. Goggles are strongly recommended for preschool, youth and adult classes. If your child is not fully potty-trained, it is required that they wear a “swimmy” diaper. Scroll down for all of the available options!
