Private Swim Lessons

Due to the high demand for private lessons and the current wait list, we are not accepting additional private lesson customers at this time.

Private and semi-private lessons are available for participants of all ages. Lessons are sold as a single session or a 6-lesson package. Lesson lengths range between 45-60 minutes based on age, ability, etc. Contact Ann Hoover at amhoover@mtu.edu to inquire about availability of student and/or senior instructors. She will locate an available instructor who will then contact the participant. 

Private swim lesson tickets can be purchased at the SDC Ticket Office. All unused private and semi-private lesson tickets will be void 3 months after the date of purchase.

The SDC is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Please do not leave valuables unattended.

Janet Steward

Janet Steward is our newest private swim lesson instructor. She comes to us with an extensive background in aquatics that includes over 15 years of lifeguarding and swim lesson instruction for all ages. Prior to being a stay at home mom, gymnastics coach and massage therapist, Janet was the aquatics director at the YMCA in her hometown of Sioux Falls SD. She was also named the head lifeguard in Ocean Pines MD, head lifeguard and main swim lesson instructor for First Choice Pools and the YMCA in Lewes Beach DE, and head lifeguard for Sea Colony in Bethany Beach DE. Janet and her husband Dallas, who is the assistant hockey coach here at Tech, have resided in Hancock MI for the past year, and they have a 2 year old daughter, Jade. Janet enjoys working out and exploring the outdoors with her family. She is excited to be able to offer private swim lessons for our community and can’t wait to give your child the skills he or she needs to be confident in the water.
