I hired Seaghaun to give swim lessons to me and my 12 y.o. son. He easily accommodated adding my husband at the last minute. we are all at differing swim levels. he was able to access our swimming and instruct all of us in the same hour. We all were "swimming" in the first 10 minutes. 3 lessons later and I m now able to do laps! Great instructor!

It has been an abolsute pleasure working with Veronica. I took Swim lessons as a preteen, but have never been confident in the water. We meet once a week and each week we build on previous lessons and add new techniques in. My form is getting better and so is my confidence.

Daniel coached me in both swimming and running. He took an interest in my total conditioning as an athlete, which I really appreciated. After analyzing my gait, he was the first coach to have me alter my running stride. It made a huge difference in my race performance. Thanks, Daniel!

Mary Krause was wonderful!!! She conducted a Zumba session recently at our Health Fair and everyone had a great time--still getting compliments. I will definitely recommend--she had all ages (kids, teens, adults) doing Zumba. The lesson was performed so that everyone could participate. Thanks so much.

Bree is a natural at this, she works you hard and does not allow excuses during my workouts. She is patient and will help guide you through any exercise and I really felt like I could see and feel results in just a couple of weeks working with her. I found she was a swim instructor and hired her to help with my son and his swimming improved in just 2 lessons.

About

As a scuba diver, an Eagle Scout, and a lifelong kayaker, I make it my prerogative that my students won't just swim when they leave me. They also learn survival skills, rescue swims(one of my 5 year olds can rescue me, a 6'7" 230 male from the pool), multiple strokes, diving and a lot of positive self-thinking.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

At what age should you start swim lessons?

From 6 months to 96 years old, no one is too young or too old to benefit from swimming lessons. Once your baby is six months old, they are eligible to take “parent and me” swimming lessons from most swim schools. When babies are between six months and several years, you or another guardian must be with the baby throughout the entire lesson for safety reasons. Even if babies can’t walk, they quickly adapt to moving in water, so familiarizing them early means more fun for everyone and keeps them from being afraid of water later on. It also helps with water safety and drowning prevention. As for adults and seniors, it’s never too late to start swimming. Knowing how to swim can not only save your life, it provides an impact-free way to safely exercise and keep muscles and joints limber. Swimming can even help relieve pain from chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Most swimming schools offer group or private instruction, so if you’re shy about learning a new skill, you can do so one-on-one.

Why are swimming lessons important?

Swimming lessons have major health and safety benefits, not to mention the fact that swimming is really fun. Here are some of the many reasons swimming lessons are important:

  • Life saving: Knowing how to swim can help you save your own life or the life of someone else. Prevent drowning by learning to swim.
  • Improved health in seniors: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that water-based exercise can decrease disability and maintain bone density in seniors.
  • Good mental health: Swimming can improve moods in both men and women, according to the CDC. Swimming can help with depression, can create bonds in families and can promote mental wellness in pregnant women.
  • Arthritis relief: Water-based exercise can ease joint and other physical pain in people suffering from arthritis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Whole-body workout: Swimming works all your muscles — without the impact of a sport like running.
  • Water safety: It’s important for swimmers of all ages to learn about water safety. Swim lessons provide the proper pool and water etiquette to help keep everyone safe and having fun.  

How early can babies start swimming?

Most swimming instructors and swim schools offer infant swimming starting at six months. Although it is not formal swimming, the lessons familiarize your baby with moving in the water, and also teach you the basics of keeping your baby safe in the water. You or another guardian will stay with the baby in the water throughout the entire lesson.

The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend formal swim instruction until one year old, but taking your infant to regular swim class can be fun, safe and helpful for developing baby’s coordination and awareness of water. Experts urge parents not to become overconfident in their children’s water skills. Keep in mind that most children aren’t really able to swim on their own until they’re at least four years old. Even if they’ve had swim lessons, always watch younger children when they’re in the water and be ready to react in case of an emergency.

How much are swimming lessons for babies?

Swimming lessons for babies and young toddlers will vary in price depending on where you live, whether you pay a monthly or a drop-in rate, how long the lesson is, and whether it is group instruction or a private lesson. Many swim schools start providing lessons to babies starting at six months of age and older, although there are some locations that have infant classes for two- to five-month-olds. Swimming lessons for babies are typically less expensive than swimming lessons for adults. Learning to swim takes practice and repeat exposure, so many schools offer monthly tuition, which allows your child to attend at least one group class per week. Higher tuition can be paid for unlimited monthly group classes. An average price range for monthly group swimming lessons for babies may be between $50 and $95, depending on rates in your region and how often your child attends. Average drop-in fees for infant group swimming lessons can range between $15 and $25, depending on the school. Average drop-in fees for private instruction may range between $30 and $60. Average monthly tuition for private instruction could range from $150 to $250 or more, depending on the swimming school. Most swimming lessons for young children and infants are 30 minutes long.

How much are swimming lessons?

Not only is swimming fun, but knowing how to swim can save your life by preventing drowning. The average national cost for swimming lessons ranges between $40 and $50. Swimming lessons can vary in price depending the type and length of lesson you select. Private swimming lessons, where you receive one-on-one coaching with a swim instructor, will cost more than group lessons. The longer the lesson, the more it will cost. Swimming lessons are available for people of all ages, so if you’re an adult just learning to swim there are beginners’ classes suitable for you. There are also advanced classes for adults who are training for races or want to hone their skills. Pricing can vary depending on where you live as well as the amenities offered by the pool. For example, a pool with private locker rooms and a hot tub may have higher rates than a basic swimming pool. Here are some examples of the average costs of adult swimming lessons:

  • Private lessons for adults:
    • 30-minute lesson: $35-$50.
    • 60-minute lesson: $55-$80.
  • Group lessons for adults:
    • Ongoing 60-minute lessons: $90-$110 per month.
    • 60-minute drop-in lesson: $25-$40 each.
