Swim Lessons

Private lessons

Whatever your current ability level, our American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors will tailor your sessions to meet your swimming and fitness goals. For a semi-private lesson to occur, both participants must be present, be from the same household, and have similar swimming abilities. 

Lessons are 30 minutes long and are tailored to give participants one-on-one attention as they work to improve or master their swimming abilities.

Only current UK members can participate in private/semi-private swim lessons during recreational swim hours.

Kelsey Siebenthaler, Certified Water Safety Instructor

 I began swimming for a summer swim team at a young age and haven't stopped since. I swam on a year-round club team, Wildcat Aquatics, until my freshman year of high school and then swam for my high school varsity team all 4 years. I have been giving swim lessons for more than 4 years and have been an assistant swim coach for the Signature Club Gators the past three summers.
