This summer we will be offering private and semi-private swim lessons.

We have 3 different offerings this summer:
– 6 week session that meets once a week (Monday – Thursday)
– 4 week Saturday session that meets each Saturday for 4 weeks (2 sessions offered)
– 4 week Sunday session that meets each Sunday for 4 weeks (2 sessions offered)

Lessons that meet on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays will run on a 6 week session with 1 lesson per week. Friday’s are reserved for inclement weather make-ups. We also have reserved the last week of our summer season (August 9-13) for make ups if needed. For these lessons, which meet during the week, will be scheduled between the hours of 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM, running every 30 mins. **Parents MUST pick up their child from camp and stay with their child(ren) during their lesson. Summer at LA is not responsible for campers past 4:30 PM Monday – Friday.**

The 2 four-week sessions will meet on Saturday or Sundays. Saturday and Sunday lessons will be scheduled between the hours of 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM, running every 30 mins. **A parent must be present during the entire lesson.**

**IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT SEMI-PRIVATE LESSONS: Semi-Private lessons are for up to 3 campers of similar swim level and 1 swim instructor. With Covid-19 protocols, Summer at LA will not be able to group campers. Families wishing to have Semi-Private lessons will need to create their own pair or group of 3 and inform us of the group at the time of sign up on the registration form. At the first lesson, the swim instructor will make sure that the campers in the semi-private lesson are of similar swim levels appropriate for lessons together. Our swim team reserves the right to make the decision that the grouping is not of similar swim level and need to be private lessons.

Registration Policies

All registrations must be paid in full at the time of registration.
