Due to demand, we are no longer accepting registration for fall lessons. Registration for youth private swim lessons for the winter term opens Tuesday, December 10, 2019.​

Asphalt Green offers one of the most popular private swim lesson programs in New York City. Private adult swim lessons are a great opportunity for beginners to learn one-on-one with our instructors. Private swim lessons take place in our main 50-meter Olympic pool. We carefully match you with a swim instructor who specializes in your areas of need.

You can purchase swim lessons in either 8-week or 15-week terms with one private session per week. To achieve the best results, we recommend our 15-week program. You will also get priority scheduling options if you sign up for the longer term. We take students on a first-come basis until we run out of pool space.


  • 30 Minutes = $68 per lesson (Asphalt Green members)
  • 30 Minutes = $79 per lesson (non-members)
  • 1 Hour = $136 per lesson (Asphalt Green members)
  • 1 Hour = 158 per lesson (non-members)
