Swim Lessons

Group Swim Lessons


Group lessons meet on Sundays, Mondays/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday.

Below are the descriptions of each of the different swim levels:

Adult Beginner

This class is designed to assist adults with gaining confidence in the water, learning water safety skills, and developing proper swimming techniques. The class meets for 45 minutes.

Red Fish

In this level, students begin learning strokes, breathing techniques, swimming comfortably on their back, and performing skills independently. They will work with instructors to perfect strokes and breathing. The students will progress to deep water and begin to perform streamline swimming. The class meets for 45 minutes.

White Fish

This level is designed for children who are new to swimming or would like to gain more confidence in the water. This class will help children become comfortable putting their faces in the water, floating, and blowing bubbles. Children will learn basic water safety skills with the support of the instructor and advance to swimming short distances. Students enrolled must be at least three years old. The class meets for 45 minutes.

If you are unsure of what level to register for your child, you can request an in-person registration with a swim test. Just email us at


Update: No further group swim lessons will be offered until the Fall 2021 semester. Dates and times for the group lessons are TBD. Please email if you need additional information. 


Individual Swim Lessons

Individual lessons are 30-minute-long sessions with a trained Ole Miss Campus Recreation swim instructor. Our instructors work to individualize each lesson to the participants’ needs, goals, and capabilities. We offer individual lessons in packages of 3 or 6 lessons. Individual swim lessons can occur any time our facility is open for normal operations, except during schedule group lesson times. The cost is $50.00 for 3 lessons and $90.00 for 6 lessons.  

Update: At this time, we cannot offer individual swim lessons until further notice, as we cannot fulfill any more requests. Please email if you need additional information. 

Refund Policy

Full refunds will only be granted up to 72 hours before the first class. After the first class meeting, any refund will be reviewed by the Coordinator of Aquatics. Email to request a refund.
