Private Swim Lessons

Notice: Private Swim lessons are full. Registrations will resume on Monday, June 10th.

Private Lessons are available for individuals who would like to request a specific instructor, need more flexibility in scheduling, cannot make the scheduled times of lessons, need special accommodations, or just prefer one on one instruction. Private and Partner- Private lessons will be 30 minutes long. Instructors will follow the same basic curriculum but be able to individualize instruction based on the participant’s goals.


A Private Lesson Request Form must be completed below to register and schedule private lessons. Scheduling for the first lesson is done with the instructor, and payment is required before the first lesson. Payment is not accepted via the phone or online. It must be done in person at the Rec. You will be contacted once an instructor has been assigned to your request.
