Private Swim Lessons

Campus Recreation is offering private swim lessons for anyone 4 years of age, or older. Private lessons are offered with one of our American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructors in a one-on-one setting, which gives the instructor the opportunity to personalize sessions that fit your individual needs. Working in this setting also gives you the opportunity to schedule lessons on your time.

To register for Private Swim Lessons, please fill out a Private Swim Lesson Inquiry form and turn it into the Aquatics office in the Natatorium at the Campus Recreation and Wellness Center, or by email. Private Lessons are dependent on the availability of the instructor and our facilities.

  Member Non-Member
1 Lesson $48.00 $60.00
4 Lessons $175.00 $222.00
7 Lessons $305.00 $380.00

Private Swim Lesson Inquiry forms should be returned to the Aquatics office, or by email.

Request Process

Due to the volume of requests, we are unable to accommodate all of our swim lessons at once. As our instructors are college students and we host aquatic events and facility reservations, we are limited by the schedules and availabilities of both our instructors and facilities. It is our goal to process and begin all lessons as soon as possible without sacrificing the high-quality service we strive to provide. In order to keep our members and guests informed, we have outlined the steps we take in processing our lessons:

  1. We receive and overview all requests to perform a preliminary assessment of the goals and requests of the applicant.
  2. We contact our instructors and provide them with information about the number of lessons as well as the times and days requested.

In the event that an instructor is not immediately available, Private Swim Lesson Inquiry forms are filed according to the date in which they were received. We will contact you as soon as possible to let you know your wait status. Once an instructor who has a schedule compatible with the requested lesson times becomes available, they will contact our applicants to set up a lesson schedule.

If you wish to be removed from the waiting list, we require only a simple email stating that you would like to be removed.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation and we hope you enjoy your time swimming with us!

All members (and their children) must enter through the ID Check Station using their ID card. Non Members must show their blue punch card to gain access to the facility.
