Semi-Private Swim Lesson Registration Options + Pricing 

The set-up for semi-private swim lessons is the same as private lessons, there are multiple swimmers working with one coach. Each swimmer must be registered for a package or single semi-private lesson session to join the lesson. We do not typically coordinate swimmers into semi-private lessons; these are usually taught to siblings or friends that are similar ages and swim abilities.

Stingray Pup Program

The Stingray Pups Program is the perfect place for future athletes who are interested in joining the Stingrays Swim Team but need some extra prep to make it happen! Pups practices bridge the gap between group swim lessons and the swim-team environment.

In the Stingrays Prep Program, future athletes will be working with a coach or instructor in the water to hone skills that will be essential to success in a competitive swim program. Participants will attend classes three times each week, which acquaints them with the expectations in the Swim Team program. Additionally, athletes will get to work with some of the Stingray coaches, developing relationships that will extend into their time on the Team. At the conclusion of each session, the last class will include a tryout for the Team. Responsible adults and future athletes will be given a report card that summarizes the participant’s progress toward program goals (swim-team readiness).
