University Recreation’s Bama Swim School

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 years old through adults. Bama Swim School offers private and semi-private lessons for ages 5 years through adult. 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.
