5 Most Common Questions About Swim Lessons

By August 5, 2019No Comments

After many, many years teaching swimmers of all ages we have answered a lot of questions! We hope that by sharing the most frequently asked questions we receive about swim lessons for both children and adults, we can help you decide if our program is a good fit for you and your family.

What kinds of classes do you offer?

We offer a wide range of swim lesson class types. Our most popular class type is our 15 minute private lesson for children and 30 minute private lesson for adults. Outside of our most popular classes we also offer group lessons for children, conditioning classes for experienced swimmers, and mechanic specific lessons for competitive and experienced swimmers.

How young can I start my child in swim lessons?

We are big believers in starting children early. Swimming truly is a life saving skill at every age, and children as young as six months enjoy our private lesson programs. It’s never too early to start introducing your child to water and helping them learn basic skills.

Can adults learn to swim?

Of  course! Any one can learn to swim at any age. Our private adult lessons are tailored to your needs and comfort levels. You can take as many lessons as you like to learn how to swim at your own pace and comfort level.

When do your lesson series start?

We don’t run set lesson series like many other swim schools. This allows swimmers to start at any time throughout the year. To get started simply contact us to check available lesson times and complete your registration, 302-234-8500 or

How much are swim lessons?

It depends on the lesson type, but our lessons are as low as $80 per month. We also offer sibling discounts, and a member discount to all members of D-Fit, formerly Delaware Swim & Fitness Center.

We encourage you to visit our Aquatics page for more information on lesson types, pricing, and policies. Our lessons are offered at the D-Fit location at 4905 Mermaid Blvd, Wilmington (Pike Creek) and 2150 New Castle Ave, New Castle.
