swim lessons

AQUATICS PRIVATE AND SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS Ages 3-9 years

Children who want to enhance specific water skills, or those with busy family schedules can take Private or Semi-Private swim lessons at the Geyer Family YMCA. Both options offer seven classes per session and are scheduled directly with the Geyer Aquatics Department, allowing the student flexibility on timing.

Private lessons offer a one-to-one instructor/student ratio, with personalized attention targeting the student’s specific needs. The individual attention provides enthusiastic swimmers the opportunity to brush up on previously learned skills or master new ones in short order.

Sometimes it’s better with a buddy! Semi-private lessons are for two children working with one instructor where they can make significant progress in this smaller class setting. To ensure both students realize maximum benefits, they must be at the same swim level. If only one student attends a scheduled Semi-Private class, it counts as a class for the absent student as well; a private make-up class will not be offered.

Classes per session: 6 / Class Length: 30 minutes / Membership Required
Last week of session is the make-up week in case one of the 6 lessons is missed.

Private Lessons: $210 for 6 lessons
Semi-Private Lessons: $298 ($149 each child) for 6 lessons
All private and semi-private lessons are 30 minutes.
