Swim Private Lessons
 
We believe children benefit most from our group lessons.  Children in classes tend to push one another to try something new, conquer a fear and encourage one another to be the best they can be!  On a rare occasion, there may be a situation when a group lesson is not an ideal setting for a child.  In that case, private lessons may be the best option for the child in order to keep them safe while learning to swim. 
We have very limited availability for swim private lessons due to the popularity of our scheduled classes.  Typical availability would be before and after our weekday classes (before 4:00pm and after 7:15pm).  If you are interested in private lessons, please call the office to place a private lesson request. 
 
Private Lesson Pricing:
Single Lesson $45.00
Four Lessons $160.00
