Private Swimming Lessons - General Information

Private lessons are normally 30mins duration and booked in blocks of 6 weeks. We have to fit the sessions into available pool and coaching time - at present this is only on Sunday mornings at Chiltern Lifestyle Centre, Amersham. Lessons may be shared between two siblings or with another swimmer - maximum 2 swimmers per lesson.

The coach/teacher is assigned by our Head Coach, Balazs Sasvari, according to the particular needs of the swimmer. Balazs will take into account the wishes of the swimmer and their parents/guardians, but the final decision will lie with him. We will endeavour to ensure the assigned coach is available for each lesson, but from time to time other club commitments such as coaches' attendance at galas, covering absences elsewhere among our coaching squad or other unforeseen circumstances may impact on our ability to do so. In these circumstances, an alternative coach will be assigned. Refunds will not be given in this case.

2022 fees are £162 for a block and payment will be taken in advance upon acceptance of the offer. A single payment for the block of lessons will be taken by direct debit mandate. Please note that, after you accept an offer, a 100% cancellation fee is payable. Dates of lessons are fixed and we cannot vary the start date or give refunds for sickness, missed lessons or other absences. If you are unable to take up the offer on the dates specified, please contact us and, subject to us having available spaces we may be able to defer your start date to a later block. If you do not accept the place within 10 days of this offer or by two weeks before the start of the block, whichever is earlier, your place may be offered to another swimmer on our waiting list.

Subject to us having available spaces, you will be able to book follow-on blocks of private lessons.
