Learn to Swim

Swimming is for all ages and abilities

Swimming is a life skill that can be learned or refined at any age. At RecWell, we want every individual to be able to enjoy swimming. Our classes and lessons are available for folks ages 6 months to adult. You will learn in a safe and fun environment, and we hope you will become a lifelong swimmer. 

In addition to becoming a better swimmer through swim lessons, students also learn how to be safe in, on and around bodies of water. Some of the benefits of swimming include; improved cardiovascular health, improved mood, relief of joint pain, and decreased risk of drowning. No matter your reason for taking swim lessons, we want to help you achieve your goals.

Classes and lessons are held in the ERC Natatorium (unless otherwise noted), and all equipment is provided for participants.

Contact: Natalie Taylor, Coordinator for Aquatic Programs
nferdina@umd.edu, 301-226-5382

Group swim classes are great for learning how to swim in a structured, cost effective manner. We set the times and the curriculum, and you join your classmates in working towards set goals. At RecWell, we teach using the American Red Cross Curriculum, and all of our instructors are state and federally background screened. 1 session of 8 classes costs $60 for UMD students & RecWell Members and $75 for Community Members.

Registration dates: Session 1 - August 14th - September 4  Session 2 - Sepember 17 - October 9

Private and Semi-Private lessons are available for folks who want to learn in a more intimate, slow spaced, and specific environment. You work directly with your assigned instructor to schedule the lessons and develop goals. Private lessons are one-on-one, while semi-private lessons are two or three on one. For semi-private lessons, you are required to provide your own co-participant. Prices for private lessons are between $32 and $365, while semi-private lessons range from $25.50 to $182.50. Each person enrolling in private and semi-private lessons must pay for the lessons. Semi-private lessons may not begin until each co-participant has completed payment. See below for more detailed information.

My child claims to not like swimming, but has spent most of the classes with a big grin.
