Youth Swim Lessons

Texas Tech University Recreation is proud to offer the American Red Cross Learn-To-Swim program as part of our Aquatic Programming. The Learn-To-Swim Program begins with the basics of swimming and water acclimation (i.e. blowing bubbles, movement, etc..) and progresses through stroke introduction, development, and refinement, in addition to diving and other deep-water skills (i.e. treading, survival swimming). The American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim program also includes valuable tips, tricks, and practices that will create a respect for and recognition of how to safely enjoy the aquatic environment.

YLTS Group Lessons

Our certified swim instructors are ready to teach your little ones the importance of water safety and help them to improve their swimming skills. Being confident and safe in and around water is an important life skill for kids to develop at an early age. Learn to Swim is offered for ages 6 months to 12 years old. We also offer swim team prep for swimmers who are interested in refining their technique and increasing endurance. For swimmers ages 12-17 years that have basic skills in competitive swimming strokes (Breaststroke, Backstroke, Freestyle & Butterfly), we offer Swim Team Technique clinics. Clinics are sold individually and cover a different topic every lesson to help refine your stroke and learn essential skills for making Swim Team. If you feel as if these lessons do not fit you or your child's need, we offer private lessons for all ages to provide individual instruction to help meet those needs.
