About our program

See descriptions of our levels below. We offer Private, Semi-private, and Group lessons:

  • Private lessons: 1:1 instructor:student ratio. Our instruction is based off of the lesson levels listed below, but the 1:1 ratio allows us to tailor private lessons to your needs and goals. Cost is $110 for a four-lesson session. 
  • Semi-private lessons: 1:2 instructor:student ratio. Semi-private lessons require two participants of similar swimming ability. If you have two children you'd like to pair - great! If you only have one child and are interested in semi-private lessons, let us know, and we may be able to pair them with another interested family. Cost is $90 per child for a four-lesson session. 
  • Group lessons: Instructor:student ratio varies by ability. We offer group lessons for children of all ages and ability - please see below for ratios and descriptions of each level. Cost is $40 per child for a four-lesson session.
