Swimming Lessons

We offer swimming lessons for all ages!

Registration for swimming lessons for summer 2021 will begin Monday, May 10.

Registration can be completed in our office, Room 112 of the Center for Human Performance, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. We accept payments in cash, credit/debit or check. Same-day registration will not be allowed without specific permission from the assistant director for aquatics/facility management.

Classes will not exceed five students per one instructor. Therefore, you must register prior to the deadline to ensure proper instructor/participant ratios and general safety. Registrations after the deadline may be considered based on participant enrollment, but cannot be guaranteed.

Participants will be evaluated on the first day of class to confirm their individual skills meet course prerequisites. If demonstrated skills do not match the skill level for the class in which a participant is registered, the instructor will assign the student to the class that best matches the demonstrated skill level. Please remember the new class may be full or meet at a different time than the class in which the student was originally enrolled.

University Recreation reserves the right to combine or cancel classes not meeting the minimum enrollment of three students.

Swimming Lesson Class Overview

During Classes

We are happy to have parents, friends and family observe our swimming lessons from the benches on the pool deck. We ask that parents refrain from interrupting lessons or coming over to talk to their children during lessons. It can be distracting to the class, as well as difficult for the child to adapt to their teacher as an authority figure. Please use the five-minute discussion time to talk to your child’s instructor about their progress, or ask the assistant director for assistance.

Missed Classes

We cannot credit or prorate missed classes. To be fair and consistent to all participants and the instructors, missed classes are unable to be rescheduled, unless the class is canceled or postponed by University Recreation.

Cancellations/Withdrawals

You may withdraw from a class prior to the registration deadline and we will gladly credit you for a future session. If you must withdraw from a class after the start of a session, a credit will only be given with written confirmation of a medical condition that prohibits participation in the class. We are unable to issue refunds of any kind.
