Durham YMCAs – Private Swim Lessons

The Durham YMCAs offer private and semi-private swim lessons for all ages and swim levels. Lessons are offered at the Downtown Durham YMCA and the Hope Valley Farms YMCA. 

Private lessons allow the swimmer to work on a personal swim goal in an individual setting. Semi-private lessons allow up to 2 swimmers to work in a small group setting with one swim instructor. 

Private swim lessons are 35 minutes and semi-private lessons are 45 minutes long.

Swimmers can meet with the Y swim instructors as many or as few times a week as needed. Lessons are scheduled individually.

Lifeguards are always on the pool deck during swim lessons.

The Downtown Durham YMCA is located West Morgan Street near Durham Central Park. The Hope Valley Farms YMCA is located in south Durham off of S. Roxboro Street
