Winter/Spring Dates Available Now
Private swim lessons are available for adults or children that need individual attention, have special needs, learn better in a one-on-one environment, or have special scheduling needs.
Private lessons are 30 minutes in length and take place at the UNH Swasey Indoor pool located in the UNH Field House. The lessons are sold individually ($30 per lesson) or in blocks of 4 or 8 lessons ($100 for 4 lessons or $175 for 8 lessons). Please contact Elizabeth at Ebp1002@wildcats.unh.edu of you have questions.
Private lessons must take place during LAP and LAP/FAMILY swim pool hours (primarily afternoons and weekends). Please consult the pool schedule online in advance of registration to ensure that the available times will meet your needs.
Once the online registration is completed, submitted, and paid, you will be assigned an instructor that will work directly with you to determine the days and times of the lessons. Our goal is to contact the customer within 1 week of registration.
Semi-private lessons (with 2 participants) are available with a $25 surcharge per block of lessons. Lessons with 3 or more participants cannot be arranged through the private lesson program.
PLEASE NOTE: Lessons that are purchased during the academic year (January - May) MUST BE completed prior to the summer transition schedule (May 18, 2018). Please take this into consideration when registering for your lessons.
