Private Swim Lessons

PRIVATE SWIM LESSONS & AQUATIC PERSONAL TRAINING

Private and semi-private lessons are a perfect option for swimmers looking to gain confidence in skills or get a competitive edge.  Our lessons give youth or adults individualized attention to master swimming skills by setting your own goals with the instructor. The instructor will then customize lessons to meet these objectives.  All lessons are held at The Lodge Indoor Pool. New or interested participants should complete the Private Swim Lesson Request Form online. Aquatic Specialist, Emily Wagemann, will then contact you to schedule lessons based on your schedule and staff availability. Requested lesson times are not a guarantee, especially during peak times. To cancel or reschedule a lesson, contact Emily at 314.835.6167 or ewagemann@desperesmo.org.
