Private Lessons

private swim instruction 

Private lessons are a good alternative for those who need more personalized interaction with an instructor. In a private lesson, a client’s individual needs can be identified and a strategic plan can be made to help that student find success in the water. Each 30-minute lesson will be held in the Student Recreation Center Leisure pool.

Individuals interested in enrolling should register at the SRC welcome desk. After registering, our student program manager will contact you by email to complete a short questionnaire about swimming skill and your schedule. Once we receive your questionnaire we will match you with one of our swim teachers and they will contact you to set up specific lesson times. We will contact you no later than one week after registration.
