Private lessons are guaranteed 1:1 lessons for those looking for more individualized instruction. Typically swimmers will be taught per the Excel curriculum, but may also deviate based on the goals for the swimmer, and may be discussed with the site supervisor and instructor at the time of the lesson. Semi-private swim lessons are available upon request, and families must provide both swimmers when registering! For those looking for our adaptive lessons, please contact us to coordinate the appropriate location, day, time, and instructor for the classes. Not all private lessons are staffed with an adaptive instructor, and not all facilities are set up to properly accommodate our adaptive programs, so please be sure to reach out before registering.

Semi-Private lessons are 2:1 classes taught following the Excel curriculum. This setup is perfect for pairs of siblings or friends who would like to take a class together, but would prefer to limit the class size. We recommend swimmers be at comparable skills levels to get the most out of each lesson. Please note that Semi-Private lessons are available by request only-you may email us at [email protected] to request a class.
