Private Lessons

private swim instruction 

Private lessons at the WVU Student Rec Center are a good alternative for those who need more personalized interaction with a swim 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 and confidence in the water. Each 30-minute lesson will be held in the Student Recreation Center Leisure pool. Lesson times are flexible as we strive to work closely with your schedule. Private swim lessons are designed for participants at least 4 years old up to adulthood. 

Individuals interested in enrolling should register at the SRC welcome desk. After registering, our student program manager will contact you by email and have you complete a short questionnaire about your current 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.
