Swim Lessons at UREC are now open to the public! 

Private Swim Lessons

UREC offers private lessons for ages 3 through adulthood. Private lessons are for those seeking one-on-one swimming instruction in the UREC pool. Private lessons are a half hour per session, and will focus on the goals of the participant. The lessons take place during family hours at UREC. 

To register and pay for the course, please visit the UREC Welcome Center and pay with FLEX. If you do not have a JACard, there is a DART machine located in the UREC lobby that participants can utilize to deposit money into their FLEX account. This DART machine also provides DART cards. Visitors and participants can purchase the cards out of the DART machine for one dollar ($0.75 for the card and $0.25 credit put on the card). They can then put money on them to use for FLEX charges. For more information about FLEX, contact Campus Card Services.

Once you have purchased the package of your choice, an instructor will contact you within 48 hours to set up dates and times.
