Private swim lessons are offered at the Dennis Malone Aquatic Center and are most appropriate for swimmers age 5 and up.
Bristol Residents: $80.00
Non-Bristol Residents: $120.00
Private lessons are purchased as a set of four 30 minute lessons. The four lessons are 1-on-1 with an instructor. Lessons are only scheduled during our open swim times. We have various open swim times which can be seen below. Payment is due upon registration. Please fill out the form, whether online or at our front desk, with as much information as possible where indicated (ie. as much availability as possible, goals you would like to achieve from the lesson, swim ability, etc.). Lessons are recommended to be once a week, but can be scheduled for twice a week.
Please allow up to 14 business days for an instructor to be assigned and lessons to be scheduled. Once the set of four lessons are completed, you must purchase another set of four lessons to continue. BPRYCS has a no refund policy. Rescheduling classes is not permitted after registration is complete, unless 24 hours notice is given. In the event that we have to cancel lessons due to weather conditions or pool contamination, classes will be made up.
Fill out our ongoing registration form at any time by visiting our website: www.bristolrec.com If you have questions, please give us a call: 860-584-3837.

Instructors will either teach from the pool deck or in the water depending on the participants ability/need. Instructors will wear a face shield while in the water with their lesson or a face mask while teaching from the deck.
Please be advised that the process of assigning an instructor and an instructor calling to schedule your lessons may take longer than usual. We will be working as quickly and as diligently as possible to get lessons assigned, scheduled and started. Thank you.
