Additional Informaton

  • We offer lessons to ages 7 and up, including adults. We require all beginner swimmers under age 9 to sign up for private lessons for safety. Private lessons are for swim only.

  • Please not that our pool is 5 feet deep and is a training pool with a temperature of 79 degrees.

  • Lessons are offered for skill levels ranging from beginners to competitive swimmers and divers.

  • There are 2-3 participants/instructor unless you select private instruction. Diving is group oriented.

  • All lessons are taught by members of the Columbia University varsity Swimming and Diving teams.

  • Because of limited pool availability and the fact that these are group lessons, we can not provide make-ups.
