Private Swim Lessons

Private Swim Lessons

Private Swim Lessons

These lessons are designed to help participants feel comfortable and safe in the water. Learn to Swim Lessons help swimmers gain confidence while learning fundamental skills.  We also have instructors available for teaching more advanced techniques, triathlon training, and skill development.  Private lessons covering all levels of swimming ability are available for anyone age 4 through adult. These are eight, 30 minute lessons for children (4-16 years old) and eight, 60-minute lessons for adults (17 years old and up).  Private Lessons are available at both the Sport and Fitness Center and the Student Recreation Facility.

Due to the overwhelming popularity of our private lessons, we are currently not accepting non-affiliates and children under the age of 4 for our waitlist.  UIC Campus Recreaiton affiliates (students, members, faculty/staff, and alumni) are still eligible to join.  Affiliates can join our waitlist by sending an email to aquatics@uic.edu with the subject “Private Lesson Waitlist.” You must include your affiliation in this email.  You will be contacted via email for more information and notified of your instructor when you reach the top of the list.

Lessons are purchased in packages of 8 lessons, with the costs listed below.

How does this work?
When you purchase the lessons, it works like a virtual punch card.  The 8 lessons you’ve purchased are added to your account.  Every time you come into the facility, you check in with the membership desk, and they deduct a lesson from the account.  They’ll give you a receipt that lets you know how many lessons you have remaining.  When you get to the end of the package, your instructor can give you a renewal sheet – it looks just like the registration form, but it lets the membership desk know you’re allowed to purchase another package of lessons.


* No refunds or make-up lessons will be offered if a swim participant cancels with less than 24 hour notice to their instructor or does not show up to a scheduled lesson.

* All private lesson payments must be done in person at the Student Recreation Facility.
