Bama Swim School (Swim Lessons)

Summer 2017

Begin to learn to swim before the summer! Register for swim lessons or Pre-Team today!

University Recreation’s Bama Swim School is a year-round instructional swim program open to full-time UA students and current University Recreation Members.  Swim Lesson participants must be current member of the Student Recreation Center and Pre-Team participants must be current members of the Aquatic Center. We offer familiarization classes for toddlers 19 months to 3 years old, a pre-swim development class for preschoolers 3-5 years old, and swim lessons for youth age 6 years old through adults.  Bama Swim School teaches skills in a logical progression, allowing participants to swim 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, and developing skills that last a lifetime.
