Private swim lessons provide the greatest flexibility and one-on-one attention for swimmers 4 years to adult. Lessons are offered in 30-minute or 45-minute sessions, with a variety of packages available. Semi-private lessons are also offered for groups of two swimmers.

Registration

Private Swim Lessons are in high demand and we have limited instructors available. If you are interested in lessons, please fill out our Application Form.  When an instructor is available to teach they will contact you to arrange class days/times. We will do our best to find an instructor within 30 days, but it is not guaranteed.  

Cancellation Policy
Cancellations can be made via email through the private lesson instructor or coordinator. Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance. Weekend lessons must be canceled before 5pm on Friday.

Procedures

Refer to the information below for next steps and FAQs regarding your private swim lesson. Or, download and print the private lesson procedures.

First Day:

  • Prior to the first lesson, payment should be made on your Yates online account
  • We suggest you arrive early on the first day, especially if this is your first time to Georgetown’s campus. 
  • When you arrive at Yates, please let the front desk know you are here for a “Private Swim Lesson.”  The registration will be under the name of the person taking the lesson.
  • Your lessons will be tracked on the Participant-Instructor form.  This form is the deciding factor for how many lessons you have left if there is a disagreement on lessons used on the participant’s online account. 
  • Lessons will expire 6 months after the date of purchase.

Parking: 

  • Directions to Yates Field House can be found here.
  • All members, guests, and visitors driving to campus MUST park in the Southwest Quadrangle Parking Garage. From the garage, Yates Field House is a short walk up the hill between Thompson Athletic Center and Harbin Field. The parking rate is $5/hour cash only.
  • There is no parking in the lot adjacent to Yates Field House; those who park in the lot beside Yates risk a $125 dollar ticket.  

Policies & Recommendations:

  • There are no make-up sessions for lessons canceled less than 24 hours from the scheduled date or for no-shows.  The instructor will notify the Director of Aquatics, and a lesson will be deducted from the package. 
  • If you arrive late for your lesson, the instructor will conclude your lesson at the regularly scheduled time.  If the instructor is late, the lesson will continue for the full 30 or 45 minutes. 
  • Goggles and a swim cap (for long hair) are HIGHLY recommended. 
  • Swimming before and after lessons is limited to Yates Field House members.
  • Only approved swimwear is allowed in the pool.
  • Parents and/or guardians must remain on the pool deck or up in the pool balcony during the lesson. 
  • If for any reason you are unhappy with your instructor or anything pertaining to private lessons, please contact the Director of Aquatics.
