Private Swim Lessons
In addition to our group lessons below, we offer private swim lessons with our guards who are Water Safety Instructor Certified. Each lesson is 30 minutes long and costs 30$. The lesson time is worked out between you and the guard and you pay the guard directly at the end of the lesson via cash or check. If you are interested in booking a private lesson, please email Kristi Braine, Ali McNulty, or Karen McIntyre with your contact information (preferably your cell phone), and the instructor that you want to book. We will forward the request to the guard and they will reach out to you. The guards available for lessons are: Christian Robinson, Grace Ramirez, Grace Wilson, Marina Nunziato, James McCaffrey, and Maggie O’Donnell.
