Swim Lessons – Private/Semi-Private

Special Facility Notice:

The Lap Pool will be closed due to a swim meet September 28th, 11:00am – 3:00pm.

Swim Lessons: Private/Semi-Private

We offer private lessons (1:1) and semi-private lessons (1:2) instructor to student ratios. Our lessons consist of six 45-minute sessions of individualized instruction. After filling out the interest form, you will be contacted by a swim instructor to arrange your lessons. Our instructors will work with you the first day to determine your goals and level of ability.

To Register:

All individuals who are interested in receiving swim lessons must complete a Swim Lesson Interest Form. For those interested in semi-private lessons, you will need to sign up with another individual. We do not pair requests with another swimmer. Once an instructor reaches out and confirms the dates, you must pay before the first day of lessons. To register and pay, please call the Administrative Office at 336-334-5924 or visit the office between 8am-5pm Monday-Friday.

  • Can I be paired with another participant looking for semi-private lessons?
      Semi-private lesson participants must find their own partner in advance and register together.
  • When will I be contacted to schedule lessons?
      You will be contacted within two weeks of submitting a Swim Lesson Interest Form Form online, due to the high volume of requests we receive and our limited number of swim instructors. We continually move down our waitlist to pair people with the next available instructor.
  • How does scheduling private or semi-private lessons work?
      We will pair you with an instructor based off of the availability that you submit on the Swim Lesson Interest Form and the instructor’s availability. Once paired, you will work with the instructor to determine days and times that work best for both of you.
  • How do I pay for lessons?
      Swim lesson packages are purchased through the Kaplan Center Admin Office. Payment will be accepted at the start of the first swim lesson with your assigned instructor.
  • What ages are offered for swim lessons?
      We offer swim lessons to participants of all ages and abilities. If you are willing to learn, we look forward to working with you to help further your aquatics experience.

      Appropriate swim attire, goggles, a towel, and a positive attitude.
