This year we are offering THREE different types of lessons:
Private Lessons: $100 per week (Monday - Thursday) for four total 15-minute lessons. Adults are welcome for private lessons as well!
Family Group Lessons: Same price as private lessons, but can purchase either 15-minutes ($100/week), 30-minutes ($200/week), 45-minute ($300/week) or 1-hour ($400 per week) and combine multiple children and levels so everyone swims at one time! (please see descriptions below)
Traditional Group Lessons: $85 for a 2-week session, Monday - Thursday, 8 total half-hour lessons.
Description of different types of lessons
Private Lessons: 15-minute lessons for one student. The cost is $100 per week, for four 15-minute lessons Monday - Thursday. These lessons CAN be shared with ONE other student who is the same level for the same price; no additional cost. MAX of 2 students and they must be the same level (beginner, intermediate or advanced). Families purchasing multiple 15-minute lessons in one week will be scheduled back-to-back as much as possible.
Family Group Lessons: Families (or friends) will purchase 15-minute increments of time (you can purchase 15-minutes, 30-minutes, 45-minutes or 1 hour depending on your needs) so that all of their children can swim together. These classes can be used for a private lesson (just like the description above) or a small grouping of various levels within the same family/friend group. For example, a family with a 4-year-old beginner, a 6-year-old beginner and a 9-year-old intermediate could purchase a 30-minute class time. They could also bring their child’s best friend who is a 10-year old intermediate and all 4 children could swim for the full 30 minutes. Both a teacher and an assistant teacher would be in the water and take turns working with each group. The is cost is $100 per for four 15-minute lessons TOTAL regardless of how many kids or ages are in the pool (four 30-minute lessons = $200, four 45-minute lessons = $300, etc). There are restrictions and guidelines to how many total people and levels can be in a certain time slot. Please scroll all of the way to the bottom of this page, below the schedule, to read those guidelines so you know if you need a 15-min, 30-min or greater time slot.
Traditional Group Lessons: In our traditional group lessons, 6 children of the same level (beginner, intermediate or advanced) will be grouped together with 2 teachers (a lead teacher and an assistant teacher) for a 2- week session. Mommy & Me classes, for children under 3, require that an adult get in the pool with the student and have up to 7 students. Lessons are held Monday – Thursday daily for 2 weeks for a total of 8 half-hour lessons. The cost is $85.

· For 2 children who are the same level (both beginners, both intermediates, etc)
· No more than 2 children allowed
30-minute Time Slot

Q: Can I share the time with a friend instead of only within my family?
A: Yes, but you need to arrive in ONE vehicle. At the very most, two vehicles could be allowed if it’s not possible to fit into one.
Q: What is the cost?
A: Lessons are $25 per 15-minute lesson ($100 for a 1-week session). Regardless of whether you choose to make it a private lesson or shared lesson, the price stays the same.
Q: Can I sign one child up for 30 minutes of a private lesson instead of 15?
A: We highly discourage doing more than 15 minutes of a 1-on-1 private lesson, especially with younger children ages 3 - 7. Children's attention spans are short. We can get soooooo much done in 15 minutes, and a 30-minute lesson would turn into a lot of play time and not a lot of additional instruction. It would be MUCH more effective to sign up for 2 weeks of 15-minute lessons than to sign up for 1 week of 30-minute lessons.
Q: What if my kids are really different ages? Can they still swim together?
A: Yes! No worries if your kids are 10, 5 and 3 and all beginners. Grouping by ability is much more important than age and we will vary our teaching technique to meet each child in an age-appropriate way. You are even welcome, as an adult, to hop in and take lessons too!
Q: What if my family doesn’t fit into any of the scenarios above?
A: Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to registration day and Cathy or Cindy will reach out to you to figure out the best solution.
Q: Can I sign up for more than 1 week?
