Private Lessons

Private lessons include five 30 minute lessons, Monday-Friday, for 1 week. Private lessons are a great alternative if your child missed the age cut off date (3 1/2 by December 31, 2021) for group lessons.

Priority for Private Lessons will be given to swimmers who require individualized and isolated use of the pool.

Cost:  $250.00 for five 30 minute lessons every weekday for 1 week

Teachers:

Savannah Forsythe, my oldest daughter, has a Masters in Education and is a special education teacher at a local high school.

Shelby Adams, my youngest daughter, has a masters in Speech-Language Pathology and works at a local elementary school.

Zuzu Pierce is studying nursing at the University of Memphis.

Leigh Bruno is a high school senior and competitive swimmer.

Robin Daughheetee is a high school junior and plays softball and basketball.

Caroline Garrett is a high school sophomore and competitive swimmer.

Private Lesson Reminders: 

For Newly Registered Parents: Please sign-up and bring your child to one of the “Meet the Teachers” times to let them meet us and see the pool to help your child get adjusted. Children are not allowed to fully get into the water. The sign-up is found here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0f4faba823a2f58-meet3 . Your child’s teacher for private lessons may or may not be here during these times.

Bring: Your child needs to be dressed in a swim suit and have goggles with their name written on the strap. You bring your own towel for lessons. 

Parking for Private lessons: All cars for morning private lessons must be parked across the street from the house. All cars for afternoon private lessons must park in front of the house.

NEW Neighbor Awareness: In 2021 we received the most neighbor complaints since starting lessons on this street 21 years ago. This is very important to read and follow.  Thank you for helping us keep our neighbors happy and our backyard open for lessons. Do not turn around nor block neighbors’ drive-ways in an effort to park. Do not change your child on our street. If your child needs to change out of a wet bathing suit, use our side yard to change them quickly. This keeps the bathroom open for the next scheduled lessons. 

Details: You are welcome to sit and watch lessons.  If your child leaves the pool and comes over to you, please take them back to the pool. Sometimes your teacher may think that your child might do better with you not sitting in the pool yard.  If this is the case, you may be asked to step outside the gate or sit on the front porch.  We want to avoid having to play “tug-a-war” with your child.   

Level 5: In addition to regular goggles, students need a mask, snorkel, and fins for this class.  (We like the rubber fins where the entire foot is enclosed instead of the ones with the heel straps.  We have found fins at amazon.com.  We have found mask & snorkel sets at Target or Walmart.)

Rain:  Please do not assume that lessons are canceled because it is raining at your house. It may not be raining here!  If a lesson is canceled, it will be made up on Saturday of that same week at the same time. We will send out a cancellation text message through our website with the phone number you provided during registration. 

Make up Lessons: We are unable to make up for vacations, birthday parties, or sporting events.  With the number of children and lessons involved, we have to hold to this policy.  Thank you for understanding.  If your child gets sick or injured, please email us, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
