Summer 2022 Swim School

UREC Swim School is group swim lessons designed for children, aged 1 – 12 years old, who enjoy learning in small group settings. Different levels allow you to choose which class level is best suited for your child’s current skill level. Swimmers will receive 8, 30 minute lessons per session.

All lessons will take place at the outdoor pool and will be held Monday – Thursday. If weather doesn’t allow for lessons in the outdoor pool, lessons will be moved to the indoor pool. Fridays are reserved for Fun Fridays.
