Swimming Lessons

Private Swim Lessons


LEARN TO SWIM YEAR ROUND! Fairmont State University offers private swimming lessons in the Falcon Center. Perfect for anyone learning to swim and continuing to improve their swimming skills. The Falcon Center pool is entirley shallow and heated to around 84 degrees. Lessons are one-on-one instruction by a certified lifeguard in the Falcon Center Pool.

Lessons are for patrons ages from 1-13 years old. Following the American Red Cross Guidlines, any children 3 years of age or younger, will be put under Parent & Child Aquatics class guildlines.  These guidlines require a parent/guarding to enter the water with the child during the entire lesson.   

We apologize but lessons are full for the remainder of the spring.  Registration will open up in July for fall swimming lessons.
