Lessons for Adults



3:1 Ratio | Adult 1 is designed for adults (16+ yo.) with no swim experience or who have a fear of the water to begin learning basic safety skills and progress to independent freestyle. Adult 2 builds on these skills and focuses on learning freestyle with side breath, backstroke technique, and the fundamentals of breaststroke.

Available only at our Deer Park, Garden City, Levittown, Little Neck, and New Hyde Park locations.


Private lessons are available for all skill levels and are a great option for those looking to progress or refine skills quickly. Classes are typically scheduled on a weekly, ongoing basis.


Semi-private lessons are available for all skill levels and are a great option for siblings or friends to be in the same class. Classes are typically scheduled on a weekly, ongoing basis. Swimmers are typically required to book with their semi-private class partner.

Infant & Toddler Swim Lessons

Infant & Toddler Swim Lessons

We offer infant and toddler swim lessons for kiddos as young as 4 months of age. Our goal is to help build confidence, instill vital water safety skills, and teach students how to instinctively react in a positive manner should a water incident occur. Our ParentTot classes are designed to deepen the parent-infant bond and increase social confidence while teaching vital water safety skills including floating, breath control, and kicking. Each class is taught at the child’s own pace with personalized attention from experienced instructors.

Children’s Swim Lessons

Children’s Swim Lessons

We offer progressive swim lessons for children of all ages and skill levels. Learning to swim is not only a crucial life skill, but it also builds confidence and independence. Swimming is also a great way to get exercise, participate socially with other children, and enjoy special moments in the water. Whether you want your child to develop life-saving water safety skills, learn fundamental strokes, or participate in elite competitions, our swim classes provide personalized instruction tailored to each student's unique needs.

Private Swim Lessons

Private Swim Lessons

Our private swim classes include one-on-one instruction with personalized curriculums for swimmers of all ages and abilities, from infants to adults. Because they provide a safe and supportive environment, private lessons build confidence and ensure that each student gets personalized attention. Our experienced instructors tailor their lessons for each student's unique needs in a safe, supportive environment free from the judgment and distractions that often come with large group swim classes.

Adaptive Aquatics Lessons

Adaptive Aquatics Lessons

Swimming is an important life skill with tremendous therapeutic benefits for kids with special needs. Swimming lessons can soothe sensory overload, relieve physical discomfort, and help kids learn life-saving water safety. In addition to teaching water safety skills, swimming lessons can also improve balance, coordination, strength, and range of motion. Our skilled, compassionate Saf-T-Swim instructors have extensive experience teaching kids with a variety of unique needs. 

Swim Camps & Clinics

Swim Camps & Clinics

Our SwimJams are a great way to get a child in the water multiple times in a week. Your child will swim four times in one week, for an individual lesson, really reinforcing their swimming skills in a shorter amount of time. This is a perfect opportunity for kids to learn who are involved in other sports or activities and can't commit to lessons for longer periods of time. Our Swim Clinics are a great way for your advanced swimmer to perfect their techniques or work on advanced strokes. The Swim Clinics are offered for an hour to boost endurance as well!

Swim Team Prep

Swim Team Prep

Our swim team training program is perfect for young swimmers who want to put their swimming skills to use and continue to refine their swim technique.
