Private Swim Lessons

There are many reasons why Private Swim Lessons may be best for you or your child: hectic schedule, skill plateau, upcoming events, or just the preference for one-on-one instruction. Whatever the reason, our Swim Instructors can set up an efficient and comfortable plan for you. Most lessons are 30 minutes in length but can be extended depending on swimmer skill, endurance, and age.

All ages

By appointment only.

Currently only offer at the Greenville Aquatic & Fitness Center. Please note only 1/2 hour private swim lessons offered at this time. 

Call 252.329.4041 for more information.
