Adult Water Activities

Adult Swim Lessons

The goal of our adult swim lesson program is to give adults the opportunity to either learn to swim or master whatever skills they may already have. From beginners who are uncomfortable in the water to intermediate and advanced swimmers looking to enhance technique, our adult swim lessons provide instruction and support in a comfortable and small-class setting.

Class maximum is 6 participants and the minimum is 3 participants.

Adult one-on-one lessons

One-on-one swim lessons are private or semi–private lessons provided by the
New Canaan YMCA recreational swim program.

Scheduling one-on-one lessons is subject to pool and instructor availability. Our one-on-one lessons are usually scheduled during Family Swim times in the Forese Scooter Pool; however, on the rare occasion where a group lesson is cancelled, a One-on-One lesson may be scheduled in the time slot. Adult one-on-one lessons will also utilize the Valles Pool depending on the day and time needed.

*** If a lesson is scheduled during a cancelled class time slot, the time slot is only available for that present session and is subject to change with the following session.

One-on-One lessons are priced:
30-minute lessons: $50 members, $65 non-members

30 minute semi-private lessons (2 participants): $42.50/each members, $50/each non-members

One-on-one lessons must be paid for at the Front Desk before each lesson. Receipt should be handed to the swim instructor at the beginning of each lesson. All one-on-one lessons are to be paid for one at a time.

We ask for at least 24-hour notice on any cancellations.

To cancel your one-on-one lesson, you must call Josephine Rojas, Aquatic Director at 203-920-1650. Cancelling with no notice or “no shows” must be paid for.

Please also be sure to arrive on time for lessons. All lessons will end at the scheduled time regardless of start time if a member is late.

For additional information about one-on-one swim lessons, contact Josephine Rojas at 203-920-1650.
