Private/Semi-Private Swim Lessons

Private/Semi Private Swimming Lessons

The YMCA provides a safe environment for swimmers of all ages and abilities to overcome fears, develop an understanding for water safety, discover the health benefits of swimming and build confidence!  

Our private lessons are 30 minutes and come in two different options. Choose between semi-private or private lessons.  

  • Semi-Private lessons can contain up to three participants and one instructor. Great for families with multiple children or a group of friends looking at improving their skills. 
  • Private lessons are strictly a one-on-one lesson with the instructor.  

Our Private Lessons are designed to fit your family’s busy lifestyle. After completing the intake form, and when slots become available, an instructor will reach out to you directly. Together you will work with your instructor to determine your swimming goals and the instructor will create a lesson plan to help you achieve those goals. Together you will plan the schedule to meet your lesson package. 

Private lessons are available in packages of 4 lessons, once a week or 8 lessons twice a week spread out over 4 weeks. Due to our limited staff and high demand for private lessons, if any lessons are missed, they must be made up within 6 weeks from the start date of lessons. 

There will be no refunds for lessons not completed within the 6-week time frame.
