Important Update on Private Lessons Offered at UMD

The registration process for the private swim lesson program has been modified to better serve more families. Instead of having a running waitlist, we are going to have private and semi-private lessons clients register semesterly. There will be a limited number of clients that are accepted for each semester. Registration runs on a first-come first-serve basis. Registration for Spring Semester 2018 will open on December 6, 2017. Clients will register for private or semi-private lessons by calling the Main RSOP Office. The phone number is (218) 726-7128.

When registering for private and semi-private swimming lessons please take the following into consideration: Instructors' schedules may not be exactly the same as the pool schedule. Instructors will present a schedule that matches their schedule as well as the pool schedule. Also, the pool may be closed for other events occasionally throughout the semester. Our pool is opened for private lessons during the following times:

Monday: 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday: 4:00 - 4:30 p.m.
Wednesday: 3:30 - 4:30 p.m.
Friday: 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. and after 6:00 p.m.
Sunday: anytime before 3:00 p.m.

If you have any specific questions regarding private or semi-private swimming lessons, please contact the pool supervisors. When calling the pool office, you will most likely be prompted to leave a voicemail, and the supervisors will call you back as soon as possible.
