Private SwimAmerica Lessons

We will resume private swim lessons at the beginning of July. Group lessons remain on hold.

To register, please submit the form above.

Here is a preview of how lessons will work:

  • All lessons for children 3 years and above will be taught privately, one-on-one unless there are two siblings who are close to age and ability.
  • All our instructors are fully vaccinated and will teach with as little contact as possible while wearing a face shield.
  • Lessons will be taught on individual platforms so the students can stand confidently in the water.
  • During the lesson, one parent or guardian will be allowed in the facility and remain in the designated seating area.

Parent/Infant Swim Lessons

Age: 7 months to 2 years; small groups

Two sessions available on Tuesdays (7/6-7/27) or Thursdays (7/8-7/30)

Time: 10:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m.

These classes are taught with the parent’s assistance, so we will be able to offer them in small groups. This class helps young children develop a love of the aquatic environment and provides training to respond to an aquatic emergency. Goal orientated songs and games teach your baby essential safety skills in a nurturing environment. To register, please submit the form above.

Private Swim Lessons- Preschool to Adults

Age: 3 and up

For the summer of 2021, all of our lessons will be taught privately or semi-privately. Lessons are 25 minutes long, starting and the top and bottom of the hour. To register, please submit the form above.
