Before deciding on private lessons, we encourage everyone to enroll in group swim lessons as their first choice because class sizes are small, instruction is personal and goals can be customized.  Our group lessons are perfect for first time swimmers or those who may have a fear they’d like to overcome.    

However, we understand you may have unique goals such as learning to snorkel or a hectic schedule that doesn't line up with our classes.  If that’s the case, please email Stephanie Landess, Aquatics Coordinator, to discuss the options.
