Is your child having difficulty improving a stroke, overcoming a hurdle or finishing a swim level? Private and semi-private lessons are an excellent alternative to group lessons. Your child will work one-on-one with a certified swimming instructor who will create an individualized lesson plan and goals.

For younger swimmers (Preschool or Swim Kids 1-3), a Parent or Guardian MUST be prepared to accompany swimmers in the water as needed. Due to physical distancing requirements, no hands-on instruction will be completed by Swim Instructors.

NOTE: Semi-private lessons are designed for 2-3 children of approximately the same level of swimming ability and MUST be ‘bubble-buddies’ from the same HOUSEHOLD.

Semi-private registrations CANNOT be done online. Please call 613-520-4480 to register for semi-private lessons.

Semi Private lesson fee: $80.00 per swimmer (up to 3 swimmers) for 5 x 30 minute lessons

Private lesson fee: $110.00 for 5 x 30 minute lessons

Note – If the your top choice for private or semi-private lessons is SOLD OUT, please put your name on the waiting-list.

Starting on Wednesday, September 22, 2021, proof of full COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all community members 12 years of age and older to enter Carleton University Recreation and Athletics facilities using the cuScreen system
