Member-only Swim Lessons

Welcome to the swim lesson info page!  All lessons are for paid members of Fairlawn Swim and Tennis only and not available for public registration or use.

Sign up to receive last-minute cancellation notices (due to inclement weather) here.

We have maximum teacher/student ratios for our lessons. Therefore, registration for any one session is NOT transferable to a different session. Additionally, if you miss a day in your registered session, you are NOT permitted to make it up in a later session.

We offer two types of swim lessons for our members:

  1. Private (Option #1 below)
  2. Group (Option #2 below)

Please note that registration for group lessons close 24 hours before the first class of the session starts.  All registrations for group lessons must be completed online through your member portal account.

Option #1– Private Swim lessons to be scheduled based on your availability. All levels, skills, and ages offered with one-on-one instruction. Upon completion of sign-up, an instructor will contact you to schedule lessons. These lessons are per household. One child/person is $20 per 30-minute lesson and two children/people (similar skills) would be $30 per 30-minute lessons.

Our levels are explained at the bottom of this page.

If you are interested in private lessons please contact Elena to schedule at elenagibbons@fsandt.com!  After registration, your instructor will advise you how to pay him/her directly.
