Swim Lessons

Wellness and Recreation offers swim lessons for NC State students and Wellness and Recreation members.

  • Private lessons are available to swimmers of all ages and abilities.
  • Adult group swim lessons are offered by skill level (beginner, intermediate and advanced).

Adult Group Swim Lessons are available to NC State students and Wellness and Recreation members ages 18+. Our programs are broken down into three levels, designed to help participants achieve individual swimming goals. 

  • Beginner: This 30-minute class is designed for participants to get comfortable in the water and to enjoy it safely. Participants will work toward independent swimming, proper body position in the water and basic strokes (freestyle, backstroke, etc.).
  • Intermediate: This 30-minute class is designed for participants who are able to swim on their own without support. Participants will gain proficiency in freestyle and backstroke, and learn the fundamentals of breaststroke and butterfly.
  • Advanced: This 45-minute class is designed for participants who want to improve their technique and endurance and how to develop swimming workouts. The six strokes studied include freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, elementary backstroke and sidestroke.
