Blue Dolphins Aquatics is offering swim lessons for members of The Brightleaf Club this summer!

  • We offer private, family, semi-private, parent/child group and *traditional group lessons.
  • Lessons are open to students of all ages and abilities, including children under 3 and adults.
  • Lessons are scheduled based on student, pool and instructor availability.
    Due to pool space, we DO NOT teach lessons on Saturday or Sunday afternoons at Brightleaf.
  • A $20 non-refundable annual insurance fee applies per student once lessons are scheduled.
  • BDA is on auto-pay via credit card only.  
    All customers must enter credit card information in the BDA Portal before lessons can be scheduled.
  • Please email with any questions!

Private and Family Lessons
  • A private lesson is for a single student.
  • A family lesson is for up to three students (children and/or adults) from the same family living in the same household.
    Please contact for information and pricing for family lessons with 4 or more students.
  • Family lesson students may either swim at the same time or split the lesson time among the students.  Some examples:
    • A 7 year-old and a 4 year-old swim together for the entire 30-minute lesson
    • A 5-year-old swims for 20 minutes and 2-year-old swims for 10 minutes during a 30-minute lesson
    • In a family of three, each student swims for 15 minutes during a 45-minute lesson
    • Two students swim together for 30 minutes and a third student swims for 30 minutes during an hour lesson
  • Private and/or family lesson duration and costs:
    • 30-minute lesson costs $35
    • 45-minute lesson costs $50
    • 1-hour lesson costs $60

 Semi-Private Lessons
  • A semi-private lesson is for two students not from the same family.
  • Scheduling is easier if you have a second student lined up; but if not, we will do our best to match you with another student.
    When setting up semi-private lessons, we will set up one or two initial lessons to make sure it is a good match before scheduling the entire summer.
  • A 30-minute semi-private lesson costs $20 per student.

Traditional Group Lessons*
In the past, traditional group classes (lessons that meet two to four days a week for one to two weeks) have not worked well at Brightleaf.
If we have enough interest, we are willing to try again.  If you are interested in group classes that meet in the traditional format OR group classes that meet once a week for the entire summer, please fill out the group lesson interest form.
