Private Swimming Lessons

Private Swimming Lessons will be available from June to early August, in a very limited capacity, to anyone seeking individual lessons at the Orange Beach Aquatics Center. Learn to Swim and Stroke Development lessons will be offered. 

Lessons are held at the parent/guardian's convenience and the convenience of the Aquatic Center's instructors. The child must be at least 2 years old as of January 1, 2021 in order to be enrolled in private lessons.

Learn-to-Swim Private Sessions: This class is designed for children who can follow instructions and are ready to swim without their parent. Instructors will guide the participant. Each private session contains four, 30-minute classes, held Monday through Thursday for one week. Make-ups for instructor absence or inclement weather will be on Friday. Limited to one non-swimmer participant per lesson. 

Stroke Development Private Sessions: This class is designed for children who can adequately swim front crawl but need work on perfecting their stroke. There will also be an opportunity to learn new strokes. Instructors will guide each participant through each swim lesson from the deck. Each private session contains four, 30-minute classes, held Monday through Thursday for one week. Make-ups for instructor absence or inclement weather will be on Friday. Two stroke-development swimmers are allowed in one session, but both must be from the same household. (In order to accommodate this, please register one child and contact the Aquatics Center to add the second child.)

Cost of Private Swimming Lessons, either Learn to Swim or Stroke Development, is $55 (4 lessons). Registrations are handled online and an ActiveNet account is required (see instruction on how to create an account at bottom of page). ​The lessons are held Monday to Thursday. Each lesson is 30 minutes.  

Sessions and time slots will be posted closer to the summer season.
