These lessons are for two or three swimmers with one instructor.
• The Oshkosh YMCA does not match individual swimmers for these lessons.
• For swimmer safety and lesson quality, each swimmer’s ability level must be no more than one Oshkosh YMCA Swim Lesson Stage (or comparable ability) apart. For example, a Stage 2 swimmer could swim with a Stage 1 or Stage 3 but not a Stage 4, 5, or 6. The Aquatics Director will have final say on swimmer abilities as needed.
• All registered participants must attend, or the session cannot occur. 

FEE: $16/Members - per person per lesson | $32/Non-Members - per person per lesson
