Swim Lessons

Colony West staff provides private swim lessons for both members and non-members. Our ultimate goal is to make sure your swimmer learns basic water skills, and each lesson is tailored to their needs.


  • Lessons are typically held Monday through Thursday between 8:00am and 10:30am.
  • Each lesson is 25-minutes long. Instructors may recommend 20-minute lessons for younger students.
  • Lessons are conducted in most weather conditions, excluding thunder and lightning. You will be notified if lessons will be canceled due to weather.
  • Friday is used as a weather make-up day for that particular week only.
  • If a second weather day falls within the same week, a safety lesson will be taught.
  • No other make-up sessions will be scheduled, and no refunds will be issued for weather cancelations.
  • Colony West is not responsible make-up lessons or refunds for sessions missed by the student for any other reasons.
