Lessons

The University Club of Palo Alto offers private and semi-private swim lessons for adults and children ages 3 & up. All abilities are welcome. Looking to improve your swimming? We work with those who want to learn how to swim as well as those interested in strengthening their skills for competition, triathlons, scuba diving, surfing or other aquatic activities.

Children looking to take lessons are required to be potty trained (no swim diapers). Semi-private lessons are also available for friends & families looking to schedule lessons together. Our staff has experience in & around the pool as swimmers, water polo players and/or lifeguards. All are Red Cross certified in CPR & First Aid.
