Private / Semi-Private Swim Lessons
Group swim lessons are not for everyone. Whether your child learns better in a one-on-one environment or you prefer the convenience of planning their lessons around a busy schedule, we can accommodate you. Private / Semi-Private Swim Lessons at the Cottingham Campus YMCA are a great way to improve confidence or stroke. Instructors will work with you one on one to develop a plan to meet your swimming goals. Private (semi-private: 2 swimmers; 1 instructor) lessons are great for children who thrive with individual attention, teens, and adults who are first learning to swim, or anyone looking to perfect their stroke.
Lessons are available in packages of 4 and 8 thirty minute sessions
- Lesson can be used daily, weekly, or monthly.
- Unused lessons expire after 8 weeks.
- Days and times flexible.
- Lessons held year-round in our heated, indoor pool
Private swim lessons Refund Policy
All private/semi-private swim lesson participants will be eligible for a partial refund (all but $15 processing fee) if they choose to drop out of lessons before the first week of your private swim lesson. There are NO REFUNDS after the first week of private swim lessons. The only exception is a pro-rated refund for special situations including an injury where child is unable to finish the session or a family related emergency where child is unable to complete the session. A credit for the pro-rated cost of the lesson will be issued if the YMCA has to cancel a swim lesson due to pool closure.
To be eligible for a make-up lesson you must call or email the Aquatics Director 24 hours in advance if you know you are going to miss a lesson.
Not showing up with no notice will still be considered a lesson and will count towards the Private/Semi-Private Swim Lesson Package purchased.
If your instructor calls out sick, you are eligible for a make up for that lesson. We will notify you of the cancellation as soon as possible, and you will be able to re-book a new lesson with your instructor at a later date. We will extend our expiration date if needed due to instructor illness.
