PRIVATE & SEMI PRIVATE LESSONS

Does your swimmer need a little extra time with a coach?  Maybe they need some help with a specific stroke or some refinement of their starts and turns.  Private lessons may be just what your swimmer needs.  You can even get a couple of friends together and take advantage of our semi private lessons.  This is going to be a great year of swimming for our Snappers!

30 min sessions = $30 per private lesson

40 min sessions = $20 per semi private (2 to 3 swimmers)
