About Private Swim Lessons

Private lessons are offered to participants ages three and older.

All swimming lessons are available at McComas Hall during normal pool operating hours. Participants must provide both participants for semi-private lessons.

  • Private:$25 per lesson 
  • Semi-private: $20 per lesson per participant (maximum of two participants)
