Private Swim Lessons

Private Swim Lessons

 (private and semi-private lessons are for children age 3 and older and are 30 minutes in length)

Steps for scheduling private swim lessons

  1. Put your child on the waitlist
  2. Aquatics Coordinator Anna will give you a call for scheduling
  3. Once time and day is secure, payment will be required.  Payments will be taken over the phone with Anna.  Time placement is not guaranteed until payment is received. 

Here’s how to get on the waitlist for private swim lessons:

1.To sign up for private swim lessons, you will need to have an account with us.  If you already have an account, proceed to number 2 below.  If you are new to the BVRC, here is how to create an account:

  • Go to our web page
  • Click on the blue “Online Registration Button”
  • Click on “Create An Account”

2.Once you have an account, perform the following steps:

  • Go to our web page
  • Click on the blue “Online Registration Button”
  • In the “Keyword Search” box, type in “private swim lessons”
  • Click on the Shopping Cart icon at the far left and follow the instructions


  • Performing the above will now place you on a list for private lessons.  This list tells our staff that you are interested in taking private lessons.  Our aquatics coordinator will telephone you to arrange the date/time for your lessons.  It may take 3-4 days for you to receive a telephone call as private lessons are very popular and the aquatics coordinator is not available seven days per week.  When you are called, the aquatics coordinator will ask you the days/times for which you would like to schedule lessons. Specific days and times have been set aside in the pool for private lessons by our aquatics department.  The aquatics coordinator will try to match your desired days/times with available instructor days/times.
  • Payment - The private lesson scheduling process is not complete until payment has been made.  You will be asked to pay by credit card when you receive a telephone call from the aquatics coordinator. 
  • Private lesson times are guaranteed only for the number of lessons for which you have paid.  For example, if you pay for four lessons on Monday at 5:00P and your last lesson is on Monday, July 18 please know that another patron may be scheduled for 5:00P on Monday, July 25.  If you are interested in continuing with lessons, tell the aquatics coordinator very early on in your lessons.
  • Missed Classes –  As of May 2017, there will be no opportunity for make-up lessons or refunds, unless withdrawing completely from private swim lessons or BVRC must cancel your lesson.  If your instructor becomes sick, we will do our best to find a sub for your lesson, but if no sub is available you will be issued a refund for the cancelled lesson.  (See below for more)
  • Fees:
    • 30 minute private lesson for a resident - $30 per lesson; non-resident - $37 per lesson
    • Semi-private (2 swimmers) for a resident - $25 per swimmer per lesson; non-resident $32 per swimmer per lesson (semi-private swimmers must be at the same swim level or within one level of each other, patrons will find the second person for semi-private lessons)
    • A resident is a person who lives within the boundaries of the Blue Valley School District.
  • Private lessons are scheduled by season.  Our seasons are designated as Summer (June through August), Fall (September through December) and Winter/Spring (January through May).  Enrollment for each season begins on specific days: Summer-May 1st; Fall- August 1st; Winter/Spring- Dec 1st 


Private Swim lessons refund and make-up lesson policy


1. Due to high demand, we will no longer offer make-up lessons for cancelled or missed private swim lessons, unless BVRC must cancel or instructor becomes ill.

2. Refunds will only be issued if withdrawing completely from private swim lessons and patron will be charged for lessons already taken and $10 processing fee.

3. If in any case BVRC must cancel a lesson, the patron will be issued a refund for that lesson only.
