Private Swim Lessons

Our Private Lesson program is at capacity at this time.

We have an amazing team of instructors who depending on the participant's availability matching up with an instructor's we can accomodate.  Our instructors are all university students so their schedules and availabilities all differ.  If you would like to begin a conversation on being matched with an instructor for private lessons please email iwrest2@uic.edu.

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 new participants for our waitlist.  If you are already on our waitlist, 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.
