Private Lessons

Resuming this fall:

CRA first focuses on our small group lessons and releases any spare water and staff for private lessons at the start of each month.

Options can fluctuate from month to month and instructor consistency is not guaranteed.

Please check Private Lesson availability after the first of each month.

Please note there is a strict no refund, credit or make up policy for missed Private Lessons.

Private lesson swimmers must be at least 4 years old. Be sure you can attend prior to registering.

Private Lessons (1 swimmer with 1 instructor) or Semi-private Lessons (2 swimmers of same level or one level difference with one instructor).
When registering for a Semi-Private Lesson, you only need to register once and enter YES when asked if this is a Semi-Private lesson. Please add your second swimmer’s name in the additional info space.

Private lessons are offered for ages 4 through adult. Children in Levels: 1-3 can only take a 1/2 hour private lesson.

A special note to Adults and Teens: Please be aware that all private lessons are taught in widths, not lengths. This allows our instructors to concentrate on technique rather than yardage and endurance. If you prefer to concentrate on improving your endurance, please join our Adult Advanced Class.

CRA does not offer private lessons to swimmers on any USS Team other than the CRA Dragon team.
