Adult Beginners II
Swimmers who participate in this program generally have some type of experience or at least have a little swimming knowledge. Participants in this class should be able to swim the length of the pool using any style and tread or float in the deep end for one minute. This program is designed to teach complete proficiency in the freestyle and backstroke.

Adult Level III
Swimmers who participate in this program have a working knowledge of freestyle and backstroke and should be able to swim at least 50 yards without stopping. This program is designed to correct current stroke techniques and introduce the participant to all four competitive strokes.

Adult Level IV
This level is designed to teach participants all four competitive strokes and improve current stroke techniques. This low-key class can help you determine if you are ready to join a conditioning swim program. The goal for this class is to correctly execute all four strokes and to encourage the participant to attain fitness through swimming.

Adult Level V
This is a conditioning swim class that is designed for students, faculty, staff, and alumni who wish to attain fitness through swimming. Participants should be strong swimmers that are able to swim 200 yards (8 lengths) without stopping. Along with workouts to improve aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, participants will gain basic knowledge in exercise psychology, physiology and training techniques to continue their fitness programs on their own.

Adult Stroke Clinics
These clinics are designed for the adult who wants to improve their technique in any of the four competitive strokes. The instructor will work on specific skills and use stroke drills to help the participant learn the stroke technically correct. Participants are asked to come to class with a goal in mind to achieve. Class is limited to eight participants to allow for more individualized class goal achievement.
