A: Yes, for those of you not already a full member we offer a Swim Lessons Only Membership. The cost of this is – $5 per participant per swim lesson set. (This membership is only good for the time of the swim lessons) If you wish to get onto the wait list or find prices for the full membership, please see our membership section on this web site.
A: Yes, whether you have a full membership or just a swim lesson only one you need to also pay the swim lesson fee each swim lesson set. We ask that you pay for the full set on the 1st day.
|Private Lessons (1 student w/1 instructor)||$18.00 per half hour|
|Semi Private Lessons (2 students w/1 instructor)||$24.00 per half hour ($12 per student)|
|Semi Private Lessons (3 students w/1 instructor)||$24.00 per half hour ($8 per student)|
|We prefer that semi-private lessons are of the same household and of approximately the same swim level.|
A: No, to swim other times than during your swim lesson you will need to become Full Members.
A: There is no real way to answer that. If you are on the wait list it means you are waiting for someone in the program to need/want to back out of their spot (usually due to other sports or activities). Then at that point you would need to be available the day & time that they vacate. This does mean sometimes you may be far down the list but no one else above you can fill that spot and you would get it.
A: We have put together our own program. It has background mainly in American Red Cross but combines some YMCA, Swim America and a few other Community Programs that the teachers have worked with.
A: Four years old seems to be a good age to start private lessons but we have been able to start a few kids earlier than that especially if an adult is willing to get in the pool with them to get them started.
We have been doing some Parent and Tot (child and parent in the water with the instructor together) private lessons with kids 6 months to 3 or 4 years old. We have to admit private lessons are not the best way to do swim lessons for this age group but if you want to give it a try and we have room when your name comes up on the wait list, we will do our best with you.
A: Yes, we do. It is often harder to find time slots for adult lessons, due to work schedules, but we try our best to fit you in.
