All of the info below is for 2019.  Info for 2020 will be released as it becomes available.

Competitive Swim Lesson Information


Our private lessons are designed to give the swimmer the one on one attention he or she may need to build self-confidence and develop all 4 competitive strokes to achieve optimum performance in the water.  

Competitive swim lessons will be offered after practices are completed, at the James Lemos Pool, by Coach Ashlynn and Coach Alyssa.  

Lessons will be 20 minutes, 2 days per week--either Monday/Tuesday or Wednesday/Thursday.

Cost is $30 per swimmer for each 2 day block.

Each coach will have their own binder with a sign up schedule of their available times.  You can sign up for lessons at the pool during practice.  Binders should be readily available pool side by the Family Folders.  If you don't see a specific coach's binder, ask that specific coach where their binder is at.  Coach Steve and Coach Joe do not have the binders.  

Payment is due at the time the swimmer is signed up.  If payment has not been paid at the time of sign up, another swimmer may take that time slot.  Preferred method of payment is a check made out to Benicia Stingrays with the coach’s name written in the memo portion of the check.

There will be no refunds or make ups for no-shows.

Please be courteous to the coach and other swimmers and arrive 5 minutes before the start of your swimmer’s lesson.

Important:  Coach Steve and Coach Joe will not be present for competitive swim lessons.  If your child is younger and requires adult supervision, please do not drop them off unsupervised.  Coach Ashlynn and Coach Alyssa are not there to babysit your children. 

Important:  When you arrive at the pool, tell the life guards at the desk that you are there for competitive swim lessons.  You will not be charged an admission fee for rec swim.  This is a privilege the city is giving our swimmers.  Do not take advantage of it!!!  Your swimmer is to arrive 5 minutes early to get ready for lessons.  They must leave immediately after their lesson is over.   If they want to play or swim laps before or after their lesson, they must pay for rec swim at the front desk.  If the team is caught in rec/lap swim without paying, we will lose the privilege of using the pool for competitive swim lessons.  Please do not ruin it for the entire team!!!!
