Private swim lessons at the YMCA are available for both children and adults.

Lessons are available by appointment only. For more information or to arrange lessons, please contact Ashley Jordan, Aquatics Director, at 860.229.3787 or

For Children (Ages 4+)

One-on-one attention is provided for the child who may need extra help to reach the next level or to achieve the next swimming goal.

Each lesson is 45 minutes long with a Certified Swim Instructor. Our private swim lessons run on a rolling registration with the option of an 8-class bundle or a 4-class bundle. Classes are paid for before the bundle of lessons begins. If you must cancel a lesson, call the YMCA and speak with the Aquatics Director or your instructor. A minimum of one hour notice is required.

8-Class Bundle Fee:

  • Full Members: $175
  • Program Members: $195

For Adults

Adult Private Swim Lessons are for people ages 18+ who want to learn to swim or conquer a fear of swimming. We have trained and dedicated instructors who can help you learn to swim, no matter what your experience or background is.

Once you learn to swim, you’ll never feel unsafe around water and you can enjoy the many physical benefits regular swimming can provide. The Y is a national leader in swim instruction and water safety, and Y aquatics programs are designed to teach personal water safety and swimming skills to everyone.
