Bama Swim School

Swimming doesn't have to end with the summer! Register for swim lessons today!

University Recreation's Bama Swim School is a year-round instructional swim program open to the UA community and the Tuscaloosa area. We offer familiarization classes for young children 6 to 36 months and swim lessons for participants 3 years through adults. Bama Swim School teaches skills in a logical progression, allowing participants to swim in and around the water with an increased emphasis in the areas of drowning prevention and an inclusive approach to swimming skills development, water safety, building confidence in the water, developing skills that last a lifetime.
