Private Swim Lessons

The YMCA is offering private swim lessons for all YMCA Members at select branches. Private swim lessons allow a participant to work at a personalized level and on specific skills. For example, an instructor can work on a specific stroke, turn, or on encouraging a new swimmer to put their face in the water or jump from the edge of the pool.

Private swim lessons are available for YMCA Members only and are based on appointments and availability of our swim instructors.


Each swim lesson is 35 minutes in duration.

Single session: $55
4-session package: $209
8-session package: $396*

You can purchase private lessons online. A YMCA Aquatics Director will reach out after your purchase to schedule your specific lesson session times and dates. *Not all branches offer 8-session packages.
