Swim Lessons

Private lessons are a perfect option for swimmers looking to gain confidence in skills or get a competitive edge.  Our lessons give youth or adults individualized attention to master swimming skills by setting your own goals with the instructor. The instructor will then customize lessons to meet these objectives.  All lessons are at The Lodge Indoor Pool. Requested lesson times are not a guarantee, especially during peak times.
