PCC Instructors have backgrounds in American Red Cross, Swim America, YMCA and other Community Swim Lesson Programs. We have also trained some of our own instructors.

We run Private (1 student) and Semi Private (2 or 3 students) lessons and Tues 4pm-6pm GROUP lessons.

During the school year our typical Private/Semi Private lesson times are: Mon, Tue, Wed, Thurs between 11:00 am-3:00 pm and Mon, Wed, Thurs 3:30 pm-6:00 pm. Then the group lessons on Tues nights from 4-6pm.

During the summer, we typically run Private/Semi Private lessons Mon-Thurs between 11am-1pm, 1pm-3:30pm and 4:00pm-6pm. The group lessons are held on Tues nights from 4-6pm (so long as we get enough interest)

Swim lessons are set according to instructor availability and interest in days and times from our students, so when filling out interest forms it really helps if you give us as many days and times you are available as possible.

Our lessons run 30 minutes once per week (usually for 5 or 6 week sessions).

Costs: (As of June 1, 2017)

Private Lessons (1 student with 1 instructor) $15.00 per ½ hour lesson.

Semi Private Lessons (2 students with 1 instructor) $21.00 per ½ hour lesson ($10.50 per student).

Semi Private Lessons (3 students with 1 instructor) $21.00 per ½ hour lesson ($7 per student).

Group Lessons (Tuesday night's 4-6 pm) $6.00 per ½ hour.

In addition to the lesson cost, all participants must be PCC members. If you are not already a full member then you will need to become a Swim Lesson Only Member. The cost per year per family is: $20 for 1-2 participants, $25 for 3-4 participants, $30 for 5-6 participants etc. (Please note that a Swim Lesson Only Membership only allows you in the pool during and around your Swim Lesson time, to be arranged with your Instructor)


In most cases the Semi Private Classes are arranged by the patrons - it helps a lot if you please try to have students that are close to the same level.

Please be aware there is often a waiting list for both morning and evening classes.

Prices are subject to change.

When asking questions please give me a little idea of what you want to know. Also how many, what ages, levels, what time you are thinking and/or what type of classes you are looking at (private or group). There is a lot of information; hopefully most of it is in this web site.

If you want to get onto the wait list, if you could please supply the following information it will help a lot: (doing a copy, paste into an email, then fill in your answers works very well)

  • The student(s) name
  • Age
  • Approximate Swim Level(s)
  • What type of lessons (Group, Private or Semi Private)
  • Time of day you would prefer (morning or evening)
  • What days are you available

  • E-mail address
  • Cell Phone Number
  • Do you text
  • Alt Phone Number (if you prefer)
  • Are you already a full Parkwood Comm. Club Member
