Learn to Swim - Private Lessons

Private Swim Lessons - Fall 2021

Private swim lessons (one participant) are available for adults and children who need individual attention, have special needs, learn better in a one-on-one environment, or have unique scheduling needs. Students must be at least 3 years old.

Private lessons are 30 minutes in length and can be purchased in blocks of 4 lessons:

  • Block of 4 lessons = $105 per student
  • Block of 8 lessons will tentatively return in February 2022

For more information or questions, contact Ned Harvey, Aquatics Coordinator: ned.harvey@unh.edu


  • Private lesson registration opens on Thursday, Oct. 28 at 7:00 pm
  • Registration will close on Thursday, Nov. 11 unless all lesson spots are full earlier
  • Click the '+' sign on the block on the right to enroll
  • We recommend adding the lessons to your cart first, which will bring you through the Log In and registration process
  • You will be asked to indicate an anticipated swim level during the registration process. Consult the Swim Level Chart. If you are unsure what your or your child's swim level is, select 'unsure' during registration and our swim instructor will do a swim evaluation during the first lesson.
  • Online payment via credit card is required at the time of registration

 Lesson info:

  • All lessons must be completed no later than December 14. Please take this into account when registering.
  • Weekend dates may not be available every week due to event and facility closures. Click on Related Items tab above for unavailable dates.
  • All lessons are held at the Swasey Indoor Pool in the UNH Durham Field House.

How to Schedule Lessons with a Swim Instructor:

  • Once the online registration is submitted and paid, our Swim Lesson Coordinator will make initial contact with the student/parent via email. Our goal is to contact and pair the student/parent with an instructor approximately 4-7 business days after registration submission.
  • Lesson days & times are arranged between the instructor and the student/family once paired with your instructor. You will be asked for schedule preferences during the registration process.

Semi-private lessons (w/2 participants) are also available: Semi-Private Lessons

Group Swim Lessons are not being offered in the Fall 2021.
