Semi Private Swim Lessons
Semi Private Swim Lessons offer a great opportunity for more individual hands on instruction for a small group of participants. These are perfect for friends or family that wish to partake in the same lessons outside of the normal group lessons schedule. Each lesson is a half hour session with an instructor. The swim instructor will work with the participants on all requested strokes. Both semi-private and private lessons are scheduled at individual meeting times to meet the needs of the participants schedule.
