EGRA Waves Lessons


Welcome to our private lessons page!  If you are looking for some one-on-one time, stroke work, starts/turns or strength improvement, our Waves coaches are happy to help!

Private swimming lessons are offered year-round by our qualified Waves coaches. This program is open to both Waves swimmers, non-Waves swimmers, and adults. 

To Register for private lessons:

  1. Click on Private Lessons below to expand
  2. Find the instructor that your swimmer would like to work with.
  3. Click on Cost/Dates button to expand and show available lessons and dates.
  4. Click on Register button.

After registering for your lesson, please email the coach that you selected to let them know what you wish for them to work on with your swimmer. Generally, in a 45 minute lesson, focusing on one stroke and a few skills is best (ie. breaststroke, breaststroke pull-outs, and diving), but working on mutiple strokes can be done as well. 


Please note that our private lessons do fill up fast and there may be some weeks where we will be unable to accommodate the demand. Lesson availability will be added by the month so please check ahead of time if you know that there is a certain day that you would like to schedule a lesson. Lesson registration will close 24 hours prior to the beginning of that lesson. 


Lesson information:

  • Lessons are offered by coaches when they have availability and the pool is scheduled to be open.

  • Lane space is limited to 2 swimmers per lane and is open to the public during lap swim times.  It is possible a swimmer may need to share a lane with another patron.  

  • All Covid-19 safety protocols will be in place per EGR Recreation Department rules:

    • Wearing a mask inside the building

    • Screening at the check-in desk

    • 2 per lane and first come, first serve. 

    • Coaches are not allowed to be in the water

    • No more than 2 coaches can be giving a lesson at a time

  • The cost is $45 for an individual lesson.  We may be able to offer lessons for 2 swimmers at the same time but they must be from the same household, of similar ability and they will have to share a lane together (subject to availability).  The cost for a 2 swimmer lesson from the same household is $65. 

  • If you need to cancel a lesson, please do so at least 48 hours in advance for a full refund.  Coaches may or may not be able to reschedule a canceled lesson depending on availability.  

  • If you sign-up for a lesson and have questions, please contact the coach.
