A year-round instructional swim program open to full-time UA students and current University Recreation Members.  Swim Lesson participants must be current members of the Student Recreation Center and/or Aquatic Center. We offer a pre-swim development class for preschoolers 3-5 years old and swim lessons for youth age 6-12 years old.
