Private Swim Lessons (Ages 3+)

Private lessons are the perfect answer for the participant who cannot make our scheduled group lessons or need that extra attention. The benefits of a private swim lesson are that they are scheduled for your convenience, and you can focus your lesson on what you want to learn: to dive, to swim, to complete a triathlon!

We offer multiple packages to fit your needs. Our request form has all the packages we offer with pricing. If you have any additional questions, please call Deb Strus, Program Director at 708.352.7600 or dstrus@ymcachicago.org.

Private Swim Lesson FAQs

During what times of the day can private lessons be scheduled?
Private lessons are scheduled for your convenience. We do not schedule private lessons during group swim lessons.

What is the difference between your packages?
Private lessons are 1 student to 1 instructor. Semi-Private lessons are 2 participants to 1 instructor. For semi-private lessons, children need to be close in ability.

What happens if I cannot make a scheduled lesson?
We have a 24 hour prior cancellation policy. If you do not cancel a lesson (with the instructor or Aquatic Director) at least 24 hours prior, then you will be charged one lesson. If you do cancel 24 hours prior, then the instructor will reschedule with you for that lesson.

When will a credit or refund be issued?
For private lessons, we will only issue credits or refunds if there is a medical reason that one can no longer continue. We need a doctor’s note stating such. If you want to try a different instructor than the one you have, let the Aquatics Director know and they will reschedule with you.
