Private and Semi-Private Swim Lessons

To help more people develop the life-long skill of swimming, the YMCA offers private and semi-private swim lessons.

These customized lessons provide individual instruction based on each swimmer’s:

  • Ability – From beginners to Masters
  • Scheduling needs
  • Personal goals

Sessions are open to all ages and skill levels, whether you’re new to swimming or training for an event or competition.

All session are 30 minutes and are available at five YMCAs: Arvada, Aurora, Littleton, Southwest and University Hills.


Costs are based on the number of lessons and whether they are private or semi-private (for one student or for two students). All fees are due upon scheduling and before the sessions take place.

The more lessons booked the greater the savings: Book 5 sessions and save 5% per lesson. Book 10 sessions and save 10% per session.
