Adult Swim Clinics

Are you new to the water?  Want to learn how to improve your stroke?  Check out our Adult Swim Clinics!  Our clinics are designed to help you reach your swimming goals, whether you are starting out or a veteran.  Each clinic is carefully designed by our qualified instructors.  We also keep our clinics small to maximize one-on-one instructor time.  Adult Swim Clinics are offered only for UTC students and Campus Recreation members.  Clinics are $30.00 for students and $40.00 for members.  Each clinic consists of 4 lessons.

"I had a great experience with the adult swim clinic at the ARC. I grew up swimming and knew the basics, but hadn't had any feedback on my form since grade school. I signed up for Stroke Development 1, told the instructor what my goals were, and she prepared a program specifically suited to my goals. Together in four lessons we really cleaned up my strokes, making me a much more effective and efficient swimmer, and I learned how to flip turn to boot. I work every day and come swim for a short time before classes in the evenings, and it is such a great way to transition between those two areas of my life. I highly recommend taking advantage of the Aquatics resources at UTC and the Swim Clinics in particular.

Amazing resource, great people!"  Andrew Arehart
