PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS

The Y's private and semi-private swim lessons provide a more personalized learning experience to increase your skills and meet your goals. Enjoy individual attention with a certified YMCA swim instructor or sign up for semi-private lessons with a partner to benefit from additional savings. We offer multiple package options and flexible scheduling.

Private lessons are 30 minutes in length and pair one swimmer with one certified YMCA swim instructor.

Semi-private lessons also last 30 minutes, but two swimmers can participate in the same lesson, which makes this a great option for siblings or friends who want to swim together.
