Private Lessons

The Aquatic Center offers private lessons for water skiing, wakeboarding, barefooting, jet skiing and trick skiing. Water ski private lessons are designed for two or more people, who prefer one-on-one instruction or who are not able to attend a scheduled class.  Private lessons are offered on an appointment only basis, and a request form must be submitted.  The Aquatic Center’s water ski and wakeboard are very popular and tend to book up fast.  Fill out your request form early and return to the Aquatic Center.
