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: Steph Draminski, Coordinator
stephd@umd.edu, 301-314-1184

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 classes* costs $66 for UMD students & RecWell Members and $82.50 for Community Members. There are generally two sessions of classes during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters. Some classes fill quickly, so it is recommended that you register early to ensure a spot. 

Registration dates:  Spinrg group classes - January 6 Spring private/ semi-private lessons - January 13   *There are NO make-ups or refunds for missed group classes.    Class schedules are outlined below for your convenience. 

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(s).  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. For private or semi-private lessons, please complete the lesson preference form, so we can pair you with an instructor. Once you are paired with an instructor, you can schedule the lessons, and complete payment. 

*We encourage you to review in advance both the pool closures schedule and sporting events schedule (parking limitations) when submitting your preferred days.  This will assist both you and your instructor when scheduling your lessons.

 

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