Private Swim Lessons: All ages - 1-on-1 instruction Private (1 on 1) lessons to both kids and adults. These lessons give any aspiring swimmer a personal experience with the instructor as they learn to develop their skills in the water. Once registered, an instructor will be assigned to the swimmer. They will reach out to you via text message to introduce themselves prior to the start of the session. Make-up classes are available within reason.

 

Attention Parents & Guardians: We know scheduling conflicts occur when you have kids.  But due to the nature of the swim lesson program, and the close watch we keep on instructor/student ratios, we, unfortunately, cannot offer make-up classes for missed time by students during your swim lesson session (unless you are enrolled in Private Lessons).  We will schedule a make-up lesson if Star Hill cancels a lesson due to weather or issues with the pool.  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.  Thank you.

All participants must have a signed waiver on file with Star Hill Family Athletic Center.
