Private Swimming Lessons
Private lessons are set up on an individual basis and are designed to give any participant the individualized attention necessary in order to improve or master swimming skills. Together, the instructor, participant and/or parent(s) determine the goals for the session and the curriculum is customized to meet your goals. 
Private lessons are highly recommended for kids who are struggling to pass a level because of one or two skills, would like to work to strengthen specific skills, or prefer to work on a one-on-one basis.  

Please note: it is NOT typical for children to pass an entire level in the duration of one private swim lesson session! Although this can occur, several sessions of lessons are usually recommended and/or needed in order to pass each level.

Fee: $70 per session 
Private lesson sessions consist of four, 25-minute lessons.
