*Due to a limited number of Water Safety Instructors, we will not be offering group swim lessons for Spring 2015*

Private Swim Lessons for Adults and Children*

If group swim lessons do not work with your schedule or you want specialized attention for yourself or your child to develop stronger swimming skills, we have an option for you.  We will pair you with one of our swim instructors to work one-on-one with you in the pool. Private Swim Lessons are only available for FAC Members.

Fee: $25 per participant for each 30 minute session
