Master Price List

On this page, you will find a master list of all the prices for our classes and private lessons.  On each program page, we listed the relevant prices for that specific program.  A little bit of redundancy never hurt anyone when it comes to money.

Children’s Group Classes

Tuition Payment Schedule for Children’s Classes

You will pay tuition for your classes either one month at a time (“the Single Month Plan”) or at a discounted rate with a three month commitment (“the Three Month Plan”).  We strongly recommend registering your child for more than one class per week during the month. Coming more frequently helps your kiddo get comfortable in the water and confident with the swimming exercises.

If you select the Three Month Plan, you will still be charged tuition on a monthly basis; if you disenroll from the class before the completion of the three month term, we will charge you the difference between the three month and one month rates for each class you took during the three months.  For more details about disenrolling from a class, see “Disenrollment from Automatic Tuition Renewal” on our Policies and Procedures page.

In addition to the tuition from the plan you select, you will be charged for a $20.00 annual membership to cover insurance and safety costs.  If you continue on with us beyond one year (and we hope you do), you will be charged the annual membership fee on each anniversary you have with us. 

How Our Billing Works

When you register for the class, we will charge you immediately for the first month of tuition.  We will then set you up in our systems to be automatically billed the price in the table below on the same day of the month starting one month after the first day of your child’s class.  We will keep you on autopay until your child moves into a class with a different tuition class or until you decide to discontinue classes with us. Most of our students continue lessons from month to month, so this approach makes the billing process simpler.

Private Lesson Prices

CBD Coach Rates

We offer private lessons with our coaches in 25 minute and 50 minute duration. You will receive a 10% discount on the total price if you purchase 5 lessons at one time.  We offer private lessons in one, two, and three person options; if you would like to do semi-private lessons, you need to provide the other members in the party. Purchases of five lessons at a time will receive a 10% discount.

Our head coach, John Fitzpatrick, can be hired at Tier 1 rates and will accept private lesson clients but only in 5-packs of 50 minute lessons. Other than the 10% volume discount, other discounts listed in the “Discounts” section will not apply.

If you are unsure where you fit in to our group class progression or whether private or group classes best meet your needs, contact our office to schedule a 25-minute Skills Assessment lesson. Our instructor will run you through a series of exercises to determine your current skill level and then will give you an overview of the skills progression that best matches your skills and goals.

If you opt to move ahead with one of our private lesson tuition plans, you will be charged for a $20.00 annual membership to cover insurance and safety costs.  If you continue on with us beyond one year (and we hope you do), you will be charged the annual membership fee on each anniversary you have with us.

Video Service Add-Ons
We will use video throughout our lessons at the Swim Studio. As an add-on service, we can package, annotate, voice-over, and draw on video that you can take home. For more details about each video service level, take a look at our Video Service overview for kids and for adults.
The table below shows the supplemental cost to the lesson to add each level of video service.  The fee is per person if you are doing a semi-private lesson.  Those who have purchased a 5-pack of lessons in advance will get a discounted rate to add video to services within the 5-pack. We will charge you the supplemental fee for each lesson after which video is processed.
