2021 SWIM LESSONS
All of our instructors are fully vaccinated. They may take precautions such as face shield/mask based on comfort level of both instructor and family. You must reschedule if anyone in the swimmer's household has been sick or exposed to COVID.
Our private lessons are taught by experienced instructors who offer a supportive learning environment for kids of every age and skill level so your swimmer will have fun whether they're just getting comfortable in the water or refining techniques. Each lesson is 20 minutes and $20-$28 per session depending on instructor.
