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, 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.

I have been giving swim lessons for more than 4 years and have been an assistant swim coach for the Signature Club Gators for three summers.
