Swim Lessons - American Red Cross - PRIVATE LESSONS Register View Cart

UPDATE:  For summer 2021 and due to COVID19 private lessons are available for swimmers in Learn to Swim Level 3 through 6 only.  

The St. Albans City Recreation Department offers over 35 years of experience and affiliation with the American Red Cross to deliver the best selection and quality of aquatic offerings.

Our lessons are under the direction of Dee Christie and Isaac Bashaw which affords us decades of experience and a program of lessons and instructor training setting the bar higher each year.  All lessons are taught at our outdoor pool - the St. Albans City Pool located at 99 Aldis Street in St. Albans. 

Private lessons offer a 1 on 1 opportunity to get professional instruction on a very personal level. Whether someone doesn't feel comfortable in large groups or just wants the attention that a 1 on 1 lesson offers. These lessons are for people of all ages and swimming levels. Never been in the water before and need the very basics, we have the instructor for you. Have you been swimming for 10 years and just want to be better and more efficient in the water, we can do that as well. 


Private Lessons:  5 Lessons - $159 per person for St. Albans Residents, $206 for non-residents
Lessons will be 30-40 minutes depending on level and stamina or the swimmer.
