Swim Lessons


The University of Idaho Swim Center swim lessons are dedicated to teaching American Red Cross swimming skills and water safety. Our program is designed to incorporate every level of swimmer, from infant to pre-competitive. Our classes are designed to teach valuable skills that work on body position, timing, fluidity, and comfort in the water.  The swim lessons are managed and taught by University of Idaho Students. A parent or guardian MUST be in the facility during lessons.

Group Lessons

  • The Swim Center provides American Red Cross swim lessons in a group setting for Parent and Child Aquatics, Pre-school Aquatics levels 1 through 3 and Learn to Swim courses levels 1 through 6.

Preparing Your Children for Lessons

  • Long hair must be tied back! It is a safety hazard.
  • Swim diapers must be used for children who are not potty trained. If a child is wearing a regular diaper, we will have to ask them to leave the pool as the diaper could damage our filter system.
  • Goggles are optional, but not recommended for beginners. The student will generally know when they need goggles.
  • Please be sure that your swimmer is dressed in appropriate swim wear! Any type of swimsuit is fine, but clothing and swimwear with floatation built in are discouraged.

Locker Rooms

  • There are locker rooms in the Memorial Gym and in the Swim Center. Children 6 years of age and older must use the locker room appropriate to their gender.
