Private Swim Lessons (Ages 3+)

Private lessons are the perfect answer for the participant who cannot make our scheduled group lessons or would like to focus on a specific goal or need. The benefits of a private swim lesson are that they are scheduled for your convenience, and you can focus on what you want to learn:

Adult -Intro to Lap Swim

Adult -Fear of Water

Swim Team Skills: Skill focused lessons based on the individual’s goals or needs.

Youth: We introduce basic water skill to those looking to begin their water adventures.

Parent Child- We work with parents and their little one to give them peace-of-mind in the skills needed to be safe in and around the water.

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 Brad Kerr, Aquatic Coordinator at 815.459.4455 or

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? 

For semi-private lessons, children should be close in ability. It would be more beneficial to separate a 3 year old learning to swim from their 11 year old sibling who can lap swim. We also offer create your own group lessons. These lessons are a minimum of 3 participants.

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.

Do I need to wear a swim cap?
No, you do not. If you or your swimmer has long hair then a swim cap may help keep it out of the way.

What is the pool temperature? 
The water in the pool is kept at 86 degrees Fahrenheit.

Please keep in mind that several other factors other than the water temperature go into how the water feels, such as air temperature, relative humidity, and how active you are in the water.
