Private Swim Lessons

Due to the overwhelming demand of our popular Private Swim Lessons we have removed our private swim lesson request form. 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.

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