Private/Semi-Private

These lessons are for children and adults of any background, experience, or ability level.

We run them during all business hours, seven days a week, throughout the year.

 

 

 

The Basics

  •  Recurring swim lessons every week: same day, same time, same teacher.
  • For ages 3 years and older (can start at 30 months with select instructors)
  • 30 minutes of customized lesson content (no levels to hold you back!)
  • No pre-set sessions: you start when you want and stop when you want.

 

 

 

 

Private vs Semi-private

Instead of large ready-made groups, we offer private one-on-one lessons, or semi-private lessons for 2–4 swimmers of your own choice (siblings, friends, etc.).

Our office does not facilitate creating semi-private groups, but we do have a Facebook page for swimmers to find each other!

*Note: Unlike our Baby & Me classes, no parents join private lessons in the water. At 3 years old, students need direct interaction with instructors in order to stay focussed, establish trust, and optimize learning.

 

Cost

Lesson price is based on the number of swimmers as follows:

  • 1 swimmer: $36/lesson
  • 2 swimmers: $42/lesson ($21 per swimmer)
  • 3 swimmers: $48/lesson ($16 per swimmer)
  • 4 swimmers: $56/lesson ($14 per swimmer)

(If swimmers are added to or canceled from a semi-private lesson on any given week, the price will adjust accordingly for that week.)

With no sessions to pre-pay for, our swimmers pay by the month (with payment due on the 1st of the month). There is an option to pay for multiple months in advance to receive a discount.

 

Register
Click here if you would like to be added to our wait-list. We’ll contact you as soon as we have an opening that matches your request. Wait times vary greatly depending on your needs and availability; our typi
cal participant waits two to five months for a spot. Once you sign up for a lesson, the spot is yours until you tell us otherwise. If you decide to discontinue lessons part-way through a month you’ve already paid for, you will be refunded according to the amount of notice given.

If you want to start right away, think recurring weekly lessons won’t work for you, or would like discounted lessons, try our drop-in lessons!

 

Trying us out
Wondering if FSS is a good fit for you? The easiest way to give us a try is with a Drop-in Lesson! Just choose a lesson off the webpage, contact the office, make a payment, and come swim! Then you can decide whether you’d like to get on the wait-list for a regular weekly spot.

If you’ve already been offered a regular weekly spot, you have the option to make your first lesson a “Trial”, meaning you pay in advance for a single lesson and then have 48 hours afterward to decide whether to keep the lesson slot going forward. If you decide to keep it, we’ll put you on the calendar going forward and send you an invoice for the rest of the month. Please note that Trial lessons must be paid for in advance and are nonrefundable once purchased.
