Private Lessons

Does your schedule make it impossible to attend lessons every week? Do you wish you had more one-on-one instruction time? Would you like to achieve specific milestones that aren’t addressed in classes? Reach out to Waterbabies Aquatic Center for a private lesson! We will work directly with you and your child to identify and work toward your individual swimming goals.

General Information


Private lessons are only offered at the Renton WaterBabies Aquatic Center:
17110 116th Ave SE, Suite D, Renton, 98056

Now accepting requests for Fall session (late-Sept through December). Once you submit a request form, if we have anything available based on your requested days/times, we will let you know near the end of September. (Note: Most private lesson availability will be during weekday day times and evenings; weekends are rarely available.)

Private lessons are intended to supplement and complement our regular WaterBabies, WaterKids, and Adult Aquatics curricula. Because availability is very limited, our goal is to reserve these spots for individuals who genuinely need the extra one-on-one attention. Whenever possible, we highly recommend that you register for our regular group swim classes.

We begin scheduling private lessons 2-3 weeks after each regular seasonal session of classes begins. By that time, our regular schedule is set and we know where there are additional spaces for private lessons. We generally schedule private lessons before or after the daily block of group classes in order to most efficiently use our instructors’ time.
