Adult Beginner Swim Lessons

The Adult Beginner class is designed for participants who have very little or no swimming experience and may be uncomfortable in the water. The course will provide instruction in basic water skills including comfortable entry, submersion, floating, breathing techniques, and an introduction to basic swimming strokes. The course is intended to help participants gain confidence and self-reliance in the water.

Adult Beginner lessons take place in the north end of the shallow end of the Campus Rec pool which is 4-4.5ft. deep. Instructors may move to another area to practice specific skills. Click here for more information about the pool layout.

Please Note: Our swim lesson program progresses participants through the learning process of swimming.  Participants will start at their entry level and after successfully completing a skill checklist can progress to the next level.  Each participant learns at their own rate and repeating a level is normal for the learning process of swimming.  Instructors can provide a variety of accommodations to suit a variety of skills and abilities, please contact: Jaclyn Pryor (520) 621-0473 or jaclynpryor@email.arizona.edu, to request disability-related accommodations or with questions about accessibility.
