Swim Lessons

Swim Lessons at Flagstaff Athletic Club


FAC offers private swim lessons all throughout the year! Private lessons are 1 to 1 with a swim instructor, semiprivate is 2 to 1. Our swim instructors can work on any aspect of swimming you are interested in improving or can work with our swim skills checklist to get you or your child to a proficient level. Recommended to start private lessons between 2.5-3 years old, Baby & Me classes are a perfect option to get comfortable in the water before starting private lessons.

Private/semiprivate lessons are the most popular swim lesson option, and we are doing our best to accommodate all private/semiprivate lessons requests as quickly as possible. Our private and semi-private lessons are currently full, and our swim lesson waitlist is at capacity. Group swim lessons are great alternative to private/semi-private lessons. 


FAC offers Group Swim Lessons with 3 different levels to encourage progression! Group Swim Lessons are offered mostly in the summer month May-Aug – check our website or with the front desk for Fall, Winter, and Spring lessons. Our Group Swim Lesson Spring Session is currently full. Please check back May 15th for our summer Group Swim Lesson offerings!
