Private and Semi-private Swim Lessons

Private and Semi-private lessons are designed to meet your individual swimming needs, whatever your current skill level.  Our American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors will tailor your classes to meet your swimming and fitness goals. Instructors are assigned according to your schedule, instructor availability and your specific needs. Semi-private lesson participants both must be present in order for the lesson to be conducted.
