To provide a fun, friendly, and focused atmosphere that helps develop the student's swim technique, strength, and confidence in the water.
Swim Lesson Rates
We have two beautiful pools available for lessons. Our smaller, child's pool is kept at a toasty 87 degrees year round so your little ones can learn to swim in a comfortable environment without getting too cold. For more advanced swimmers, we also teach lessons in our 25-yard lap pool.
Private Lessons are offered to members and non-members. Your child will receive one-on-one attention from an instructor at a time that fits your schedule. Private lessons are offered year round.
|PRIVATE LESSONS|| Member Rate* || Non-Member Rate|

Semi-Private Lessons are offered to members and non-members. Two children maximum are paired with a single instructor. Semi-private lessons are offered year-round.

Summer Swim Lessons for Kids
At Avila Bay Athletic Club, summer swim lessons offer an economical way for your child to learn to swim. Unlike other other swim lesson programs, ours are limited to two students per instructor. Don't have a second child or friend that wants to do lessons with your child? Contact us and let us match you up with someone else!
The Summer Schedule is Here!
Summer lessons start June 12th and run every week until August 10th, except for the week of 4th of July.
Lessons start on Monday of each week, and run at the same time through Thursday. No make-up sessions are offered for missed classes. Two swimmers are required for each session. If you need help finding a partner, let us know and we will do our best to match your child up with another child of similar level. In the event that only a single student is in a class, the class will be cancelled.
Lessons are offered at the following times in the morning and afternoon:
| 8:30 - 9:00|| 4:30 - 5:00|
| 8:45 - 9:15|| 4:45 - 5:15|
| 9:00 - 9:30|| 5:00 - 5:30|

Summer session lessons are $65/student for members and $85/student for non-members for each week. Students must have their own membership in order to qualify for member rates.
