Private Swim Lessons

Please note that the steam rooms are currently closed.

Due to the overwhelming demand of our popular Private Swim Lessons we have removed our private swim lesson request form. There is currently a 2 to 3 month waitlist. We will replace the request form when lessons become available. Please check back later for updates. 

Work one-on-one with qualified aquatics instructors to learn how to swim or refine your skills. Swimmers of all levels are welcome and children must be at least three years of age to receive instruction. We offer multiple options for private swim lessons taught by professionally trained staff and Water Safety Instruction (WSI) certified instructors. Private lessons are scheduled based on instructor, client and pool space availability. All private swim lessons are 30 minutes. Group rates are also available.

Members receive priority on the private swim lesson waitlist and advanced registration for all Aquatics Programs. For membership information>

Locker room policy for children

  • Children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian in the locker rooms at all times.
  • Children four years old and younger can accompany a parent/guardian in the locker room, regardless of the child's gender but we ask that the parent/guardian use the designated family changing area of the locker rooms to change the child.
  • Children over four years of age will need to be accompanied by a same gender parent/guardian in the locker room. Otherwise they must use the family changing rooms located near the West Pool.
