Our lessons this season are for Members Only.


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.


Please consider your signups carefully, cancellations are handled manually and cannot be done within 48 hrs of the lesson. At that time you must contact the instructor directly to arrange a makeup. Missed lessons will not be refunded. (You can see your classes under your My Account at dewing.com.) Our DPST Head Coach Molly Savaiinaea, not pictured, offers lessons for team members only.
