Private lessons

Do you need pointers on your swimmingtechnique? Does your child need support in learning how to swim? Private lessons are tailored to suit your needs, from beginner skills to advanced techniquetips.

A private lesson is a good choice if one wants to tackle their fear of water, or just overcome any obstacle they might have when learning to swim. Many take private lessons to boost their learning, even if they already attend swimming courses- during a private lesson the instuctor is there for you, and the two of you can work on those areas that pose challanges for you. A private lesson consists of 30 effective minutes, and even a couple of private lessons can work wonders!

What do I bring with me to a private lesson?

When attending a private lesson, one needs their swimming suit, a towel and shower essentials for washing (e.g. shower gel, shampoo etc.). We also recommend using your swimming goggles. The instructor will meet you in the pool area, by the life guard’s office.
