ACC is a not-for-profit cabana and therefore not in the swim school business.  However, we do offer summer seasonal instruction for a variety of skills – from those completely new to the water to those who are competitive swimmers.  The primary purpose for this offering is to teach our membership's children and those of our local community to be water safe. We also hope to prepare more children for our swim team program, the Almaden Dolphins (members only).

Our swim lessons program manager was a Coach of the Almaden Dolphins Swim Team, Rachel Wheelock. Rachel grew up in our community, swimming for the Dolphins since she was five years old. This summer is her 3rd season managing the Swim Lesson Program at the Cabana. She is looking forward to teach the next generation of young swimmers, as well as continuously developing the swim lesson program for this year and future summers.

Regular sessions are all 30 minutes long and are offered Monday-Friday. Please see further below for level descriptions and lesson offerings.  Additional private lessons and custom sessions are available upon request and based on swim instructor availability.  For any questions, please contact our Swim Manager.

Below are our Group Swim Lessons for Summer 2024

**Pre-Season Group Lessons will be held by Swim Lessons Manager, Rachel. See schedule below.**

Group lessons will be of 3:1 (three students to one swim instructor) in order to give ample time to each student.

Private lessons are based on swim instructor availability. Scroll down below to see Private Instructors Availability.
