Private Lessons

Private swim lessons (30 minutes of one-on-one instruction) and semi-private swim lessons (30 minutes of one-on-two instruction) are designed to provide instruction for swimmers of all skill levels.

Private and semi-private swim lessons offer an excellent opportunity to explore your potential in swimming basics, stroke mechanics, and techniques.

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

Registration for Private Lessons opens Jan. 25 and closes April 28. All lessons must be completed by May 5.

  • Anyone entering the facility will be required to wear a face mask, except for those who are two years old and under.
  • Temperatures will be taken upon entry into the facility.
