Private swimming lessons are on sale now!

 

We offer private or semi-private lessons for adults of all skill levels. From the beginner who wants to learn the basics, to the more advanced participant who needs to work on technique or to refine their skills, our instructors can help. Instructor bios, including experience and expertise can be viewed here.

 

Adult Private Swim Lessons

This is a one-on-one private swimming lesson with one of our instructors. We recommend these lessons for teenagers that are at a more advanced level and adults at any level.  Lessons are 60 minutes in length and are purchased in packs of five lessons.

 

Adult Semi-Private Swim Lessons

These are semi-private lessons with two to three adults of the same ability level and one of our instructors. We recommend these lessons for teenagers that play at a more advanced level and adults of any skill level.

Member Services will not match individuals who would like to participate in semi-private lessons, the group must be decided upon before registering. Lessons are 60 minutes in length and are purchased in packs of five. Each participant must purchase their own lesson package. Prices listed are per person.

There are also stairs located along the far wall of the Pool Mezzanine that will lead you down to the Pool Deck. Please see our Flynn Recreation Complex Map or ask any member of our staff to help you navigate.
