Santa Clara University is proud to provide private swimming lessons to a range of swimmers, with any and all levels of experience. We offer lessons for six weeks during the fall & spring academic quarters & then summer lessons in two week sessions.
We happily provide lessons to swimmers six months and up. Please note our pool is only heated to 80 degrees year round- children under the age of 3 may not do well in our facility for lessons due to not being able to swim to stay warm. Lessons are planned to be swimmer-specific and address the concerns of each individual.
When Are Lessons?
Fall lessons are provided for 6 weeks. Lessons cost $120 for six 25 minutes Saturday lessons.
Dates: Oct 5, 12, 19, November 2, 9, 16
Swimmers can choose from the following timeslots:
10:30AM- 10:55AM (FULL)
11:00AM – 11:25AM (FULL)
11:30AM – 11:55AM (FULL)

Due to our pool only having one shallow lane, we can only offer two spots per time slot UNLESS the swim lesson participant is able to swim in deeper water. In that case, we will allow additional spots per time slot.

Parking permits are not included in the cost of swim lessons. All patrons using the facility for swim lessons will need to purchase a parking permit or day pass through Transportation Services (408-554-4441) or park off campus and walk into campus to use our facilities. This is for summer lessons only. Fall/spring weekend parking is not restricted to permits.
The most important role of a parent or guardian during swimming lessons is to be positive and patient with your swimmer's success. There is no set pace for your child's swimming improvement.
To maintain quality class management, parents are asked to sit and observe lessons from the pools bleachers. We ask that if you have any questions about your child's progress to please approach the instructor before or after the class has finished. All instructors will be happy to answer any of your questions, or will direct you to whom on staff can best assist you. Please direct any non-swim lesson questions to the lifeguard/s on duty.
