Private Swim Lessons
At the Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center, we understand not every person learns the same way. Some individuals flourish in a group learning setting while others have more success working one-on-one. The private swim lessons at Sunshine are tailor-made for each swimmer. Adults and young swimmers alike can benefit from private classes. Swimmers who are new to the sport, are fearful of the water, are looking for adaptive lessons, or even need a flexible scheduling option, will see positive results with private swim lessons.
Are you already a confident swimmer? Independent lap swimming or water fitness is also offered at Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center. Throughout the week, during our calmer parts of the day, lap swimming or water fitness is available to members 18 years and older. It can be an added program for adults who are taking private lessons and would like to practice throughout the week. Swimming also compliments any fitness routine; low impact, high resistance, full-body workout. Of course our pool is also a great depth for those individuals who would like to strengthen their core and gain flexibility in their joints with water walking type exercise.

Refunds and Cancellations
There are no refunds for SSFC programs.
Group Lesson Make-ups/Cancellations:
Please do not assume class is cancelled if it is raining. Make ups will not be granted if you choose not to come to class. Rescheduling for missed classes is not available for group lessons.
If Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center cancels a class for any reason (such as lightning or accident in the pool) a make-up time will be scheduled for any classes that are stopped prior to 15 minutes into the lesson. If Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center cannot provide a make-up time, a credit will be issued to the member’s Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center account. All families affected by the pool closure will be sent an email to their “on file” email address notifying families of when the make-up class is scheduled for. If a make-up time is scheduled, it is at the family’s discretion to attend the make-up class. No credits will be given if the family does not attend the make-up class. Also, partial credits will not be distributed for classes that exceed the 15-minute mark.
Private Lesson Make-ups/Cancellations:
A minimum of 24 hours notification is required for a make-up class to be granted; same day cancellations are not eligible for a make-up class. During a (1-day a week) private lesson session only 1 make-up class will be granted for a pre-scheduled missed day. For a (2-day a week) private lesson session 2 make-up classes will be granted for pre-scheduled missed days. Once your make-up class has been scheduled; that date and time will be the only opportunity for the make-up. We are no longer granting rescheduling of make-up classes due to excessive cancellations and no shows. For semi-private lessons the same criteria and restrictions apply.
Transfer of Classes/ Programs
There are No Refunds. If your schedule changes and you need to adjust your swim schedule you may transfer to a different day/time or session up until the close of business on the Thursday before the first day of the session you are scheduled for. Attempting to drop a class after the final transfer date will result in loss of spot and no option for transfer or credit for class to your Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center account. It is the responsibility of the family to contact the Sunshine Swim and Fitness Center for any changes in the enrollment of their swimmer(s) prior to the Thursday before the start of the session. There are no refunds.

Questions and Concerns?
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child there is a 5-minute transition period between the classes to briefly speak with their instructor. You may also bring your questions and concerns to the attention of the managers on deck; Sara Vaughn and Kim Amali, to be addressed at anytime.
Semi-private lessons are the unicorn of our swim lesson program. Small group setting with the flexible scheduling of a private lesson.
We strongly recommend scheduling a swim assessment before registering for classes. During the FREE swim assessment, swimmers will be evaluated to determine which swim level they will best be suited for. Assessments take up to 10 minutes per swimmer and must be scheduled with the office in advance.
*Please understand, if you choose not to complete an assessment and during the first lesson, we determine that your student is not appropriate for the level you selected, we will need to find a class that is more suitable. We will do our best to place your child in a class similar to the time and days you selected, but are not able to make that guarantee.
- Things to Know
- An Assessment must be done in advance to ensure the swimmers are of the same or similar ability.
- Up to 3 swimmers can be in a semi-private lesson together (can be siblings or family friends close in age)
- 24-hour notice is required to be granted a make-up if you cannot attend class; all students must miss for a make-up to be granted. If only one student is missing and the class is held the one student will not be eligible for a make-up class.
Cost $48.00 per class. Not per student.
The total cost will be divided equally between each participating family depending on the number of students.
Example – Meeting 1 day a week for 4 weeks Total cost is $192.00. 2 students cost would be $96.00 each or for 3 students $64.00 each.
