A YMCA certified swim instructor could be just what you or your child needs to get comfortable in the water or achieve your swimming goals. Your lessons are designed to meet your specific needs. 


Private/Semi-private Swim Lessons

Let our caring, experienced aquatics team support you in achieving your individual swim goals through 30-minute private or semi-private swim lessons.

Private lessons target your strengths as a swimmer and allow you and your instructor to develop an individualized plan for what you want to get better at. Semi-private lessons can be arranged for you and friends or family. 

We’re committed to helping you be the swimmer you want to be.

To schedule your private swim lesson, please contact Teo Tejada, Aquatics Director, at 718-739-6600 x6006 or ttejad@ymcanyc.org.
