Texas Tech University Recreational Sports is proud to offer the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Program.

The Learn-to-Swim program emphasizes water safety while introducing the fundamentals of swimming, diving and other aquatic activities. Registration is open to those affiliated with Texas Tech University as well as the community. We also offer private and semi-private lessons and all of our classes are taught by certified Red Cross Instructors.

Please note that classes fill extremely fast and class information given over the phone or online does not guarantee correct availability, therefore we ask that registration is completed in person at the pool during open hours.
