Private Swim Lessons and Semi-Private Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons

We offer private and semi-private swim lessons with trained swim instructors for students, faculty/staff and their dependents, and community members. The minimum age for private lessons is 3 years old. The objective of our private lesson program is to provide instruction that meets the individual's swimming goals through a one-on-one experience, regardless of their abilities.

These private and semi-private classes are scheduled by appointment through the University Recreation Aquatics Program.  Contact Jacob Wuwert, Assistant Progam Manager at [email protected] to fill out a request for private swim lessons or semi-private lessons and get the registration process started.

In this form, be prepared to answer things like contact information, information about the child's age and abilities, goals, and availability. 

The private lessons are offered throughout the semester to individuals in a package of six (6) thirty-minute sessions. These are typically completed once a week over six weeks, but that can be flexible. The lesson may be cancelled and rescheduled due to sickness. Lessons MUST be cancelled 6 hours prior to the lesson. Lessons cancelled within 6 hours will be forfeited.

The semi-private lessons are offered throughout the semester to two participants of the same skill level, in a package of six (6) thirty-minute sessions. These participants would be registered together, as we do not pair students together (some examples of pairings are twins, siblings, or family friends) and this package must be purchased at one time.

The Aquatic Assistant Program Manager will set up the lessons with an instructor and send a link to pay for the lessons. All lessons must be completed by the end of the semester in which they were started (lessons do not carry over from Fall to Spring, Spring to Summer, etc.).

Private lessons are NON REFUNDABLE except for extenuating circumstances considered on an individual basis.
