Class Descriptions

Beginning Adult:

This class is for the non-swimming adult that would like to learn how to swim for the first time!  We will start with basic aquatic skills and build up your comfort in, on and around the water.  We also teach you about water safety so that you will learn how to save yourself and/or others in an emergency situation.

Intermediate Adult:

This class is for the adult who can already swim, but would like to learn more about proper stroke technique.  We will cover all strokes, go over water safety topics and help improve your fitness and endurance level!


All lessons are held at the Student Recreation Center Natatorium.
