Adult Group Classes

Swim lessons are not just for learning how to swim! We offer lessons that cater to every skill level, whether its learning the basics of swimming or training for an event like a triatlon. We aim to tailor our lessons to meet individual needs. 

Group lessons will consist of eight one-hour classes per session that meet twice per week for four weeks. Make-up lessons will be scheduled for those times when lessons have to be cancelled due to inclement weather or a building closure. Make-up lessons will not be scheduled on an individual basis. Due to current Covid regulations on campus, only current ASU students and staff with a Sun Devil Fitness Complex membership may participate in the swim lesson program.

Private Lessons 

Private lessons are based on one hour private lessons with an instructor.  Our instructors will introduce topics based on your level of swimming and tailor lesson plans to help obtain your fitness swimming goals. They will also take into consideration your past experiences, current goals and physical characteristics to introduce basic to advanced swimming skills. Sessions are based around your schedule and instructors are chosen to fit your specific needs. Private lessons will be available upon the re-opening of the Sun Devil Fitness Complex.
