We will reach out to you when we have an opening that matches your preferences. Please note: If you are requesting one of the more popular lesson days/times (generally, weekends and after school hours), the wait for a lesson placement may be longer. Thank you for your patience as we work to accommodate all interested swimmers.
Meantime, for a detailed rundown of our pricing and programming, see below.
How much do lessons and classes cost?
For lessons and classes held at our pools:
• Private lessons: $40 per 30-minute lesson
• Semiprivate lessons (2 children, such as siblings): $30 per child per 30-minute lesson.
• Group classes: $150 for kids classes (30 minutes each class), $165 for adult classes (45 minutes each)
• Drop-in Baby + Toddler Bubbles: $25 per child, cash paid onsite. No registration required. Just show up!
For lessons held at your pool (i.e. your apartment building, home, swim club, etc.):
• On-site private lessons: $50 per 30-minute lesson.
• On-site semiprivate lessons: $40 per child per 30-minute lesson.
After your first "trial" private or semiprivate lesson, which you pay for as a single session, lesson credits are available in packs of six. All group classes, except for Drop-in Baby + Toddler Bubbles, are paid in full in advance of your six-week session.
How many weeks do classes and lessons last?
Private and semiprivate lessons are considered ongoing and enrolled on a rolling basis as scheduling permits, so there is no hard-and-fast start and end date. You start them when you want, and end them when you want.
Our small-group classes run in six-week sessions throughout the year. Enrollment for the next upcoming session typically opens 2-3 weeks after the session before it begins. By adding your name to our Class waitlist, you will be the first to hear when registration opens.
Where can I learn more about Drop-in Baby + Toddler Bubbles?
