Group Lessons

Bama Swim School participation is open to UA students and members of University Recreation. Registration is by age group with participants being placed into skill level groups according to: participation history, responses to the Skill Level Selection Guide, or an assessment of each child’s skills on the first day of class. Swim lessons are progressive in that each skill level builds upon the proceeding one. Classes may include a combination of two successive skill levels. At each skill level, participants are involved in activities related to the following components: water entry and exit, breath control and submerging, buoyancy, changing direction, treading, swimming on the front, back, and side, and water safety.
