Learn to Swim: Semi-Private Lessons

Semi-Private Swim Lessons - Fall 2021

Semi-Private swim lessons during the academic year are available for adults or children that need individual attention, have special needs, learn better in a small environment, or have unique scheduling needs. Students must be at least 3 years old.

Semi-Private lessons are for 2 participants. The UNH private lesson program does not offer private lessons for 3 or more participants.

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

  • Block of 4 lessons ($65 per student)
  • Block of 8 lessons are tentatively scheduled to return in Feb., 2022

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


  • Semi-Private lesson registration opens on Thursday, Oct. 28 at 7:00 pm
  • Lesson registration closes on Thursday, Nov. 11 unless the 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 needed. 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
  • For semi-private lessons, a separate registration must be done for the additional student, even if it is two students from the same family. These can be done through a family account
  • 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 account when registering.
  • Refunds are not provided for any unfinished lessons.
  • Weekend dates may not be available every week due to event and facility closures. Click on Related Items tab above for unavailable dates.
  • If you are interested in semi-private lessons, you must sign up with another swimmer. We do not have the capability to pair you with another swimmer
  • Swimmers should be of similar age and ability, have common goals, and have the same availability.
  • All lessons are held at the Swasey Indoor Pool in the UNH Durham Field House.

How to Schedule Lessons with your Swim Instructor:

  • Once the online registration is submitted and paid for both participants, our Swim Lesson Coordinator will make initial contact with the adult student or parent via email. Our goal is to contact and pair the students/parents with an instructor approximately 4-7 business days after registration submission.
  • Lesson days & times are arranged between the instructor and the adult student or parent once paired with your swim instructor through the initial email. You will be asked for schedule preferences during the registration process.
  • The swim lesson coordinator will not contact the adult students or parent to set up the lesson day/time until both students in the semi-private lesson have completed the enrollment.
