WHY PRIVATE LESSONS?
Learning how to swim is not only a lifelong way to exercise but is also a way to be safe around the water. Private lessons give participants individualized attention to help them improve or master their swimming skills at every age and ability. The instructor, participants and parents work together to determine lesson goals.
