More Information

Private lessons are different from group lessons - without others in the class, there is little down time between skills.

This can be challenging for swimmers with low endurance, but beneficial for skill development and correcting errors. Without peers, we are unable to see students demonstrate the Water Smart Message ‘Swim with a Buddy’.


For beginners, private lessons are a bit more 'slow-paced' allowing students to gain confidence and get comfortable in the water.

For intermediate and advance swimmers, private lessons will entail lots of laps and technique improvement.
