Private Swim Lessons

Private swimming lessons are designed to give participants individualized attention in order to improve or master their swimming skills. Instructors, participants and/or parents work together to determine goals for the session and lessons are then customized in order to meet the established goals. Private Lessons are available to participants of all ages and can be scheduled any day of the week.
