Youth Private Instruction

Why Private Swim Lessons?

  • Receive the benefit on an instructor’s direct attention to your child’s specific needs.
  • Provide children who are advanced for their age the opportunity to excel.
  • Allow shy, fearful or uneasy children to thrive.
  • Work on specific skills and/or personal goals.
  • Arrange class times that match your schedule.
  • Have FUN!

Registration for private swim lessons is now available online!

You may also register in person at either the Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center or the Alumni Wang Fitness Center.

To begin online registration, select the appropriate box.

Please be aware that we make every effort to place students with instructors as quickly as possible.  Due to the increased number of requests received during peak seasons, placement may take several weeks.  Thank you for your patience.
