Private Swimming Lessons

Call 801-451-2229 to put your children’s name on the list for private swim lessons.

One-on-one instruction is invaluable for everyone from brand new swimmers to experienced swimmers looking to fine-tune their strokes. Oakridge Country Club offers private 30 minute swim sessions with experienced teachers who specialize in a variety of teach-
ing methods. If you are interested in private lessons, call the front office with your name, age, and brief description of your swimming goals. You will be paired with a swim instructor who will contact you to create a schedule for the summer that works best for you.

Lessons can be done several days in a row (which is recommended for beginner-level swimmers) or spaced through out the summer. We are excited to work with you!
