Adult and Youth Swim Lessons
Swim lessons are open to students, faculty, staff
AND the community. No HRC membership is required to take lessons!
We offer Adult Private/Semi-Private Swim Lessons. These lessons are
for adults that never had the opportunity or need work on their
technique to become better fitness swimmers. All abilities are
welcome. It's never too late to learn to swim!
