Youth Swim Lessons

This program brings children ages 3 and older together with experienced instructors - members of the University Swimming and Diving team - for private, one-on-one instruction. The goal of the program is to provide quality instruction geared to the individual needs of the child in a safe, supportive, and enthusiastic environment. We also hope that a positive relationship develops between your child and the instructor.


1. Anyone interested in enrolling his or her child(ren) in the program must fill out an application. All applications are filed according to the date the application is received. Previous swim students, Brandeis employees, and Brandeis alumni will have priority over all other applicants regardless of the application date.

2. The instructor will evaluate your child during their first lesson by their assigned instructor and appropriate material will be covered over the course of the remaining lessons.

3. Swimming lessons are 30 minutes in length taking place between 8:00 AM and 11:00 AM. Lesson dates are based upon the Brandeis Academic Calendar, the Swimming and Diving Team’s meet and practice schedule, and other team or academic responsibilities. Fall dates will be announced closer to the start of the Fall 2023 semester.

Assumption of Risk and Waiver of Liability

By attending the Learn to swim program, you are voluntarily participating in physical activity and must assume that you are doing so at your own risk. Brandeis University is not responsible for any injury that may occur during participation. Please consult your doctor if you possess any health problems or physical limitations.

Unable to attend the Learn to Swim program?

Aquatics staff offer one-on-one, private adult swim lessons to the Brandeis community (current students, faculty, staff, and membership holders).

Lesson Schedule: Potential clients should contact the Aquatics Director to find an instructor that is a good fit for his/her needs and schedule.  Once an instructor has been assigned, the client will work directly with the instructor to set up individual lessons.

Rates: $65/hour paid to the Aquatics Director (cash or check only made payable to "Brandeis Athletics")

Cancelation Policy: Should the need arise for clients to cancel or reschedule a lesson, we ask that clients provide 24-hour notice. In the event that a client does not provide at least 12-hour notice for a cancellation, clients will be charged for their scheduled lesson.

Should an instructor need to reschedule or cancel an appointment, every effort will be made to provide the client with 24 hours' notice. Failure on behalf of an instructor to provide at least 12 hours' notice of a cancellation will result in a one-session credit for the client.

Contact the Aquatics Director to get started with private swim lessons!
