Swim School Registration forms must be turned in no later than the Thursday prior
to the first night of the session that you will be attending. The registration form
and fee must be brought to the Student Recreation and Fitness Center at 620 Echles
St. The fee is $100 per participant. Make checks out to The University of Memphis.
Children's Swim School is for children four years of age to 14 years of age. PLEASE
do not register your child if they are not four. This makes it difficult for the child,
the instructor, and the other participants. We teach children who are beginners to
advanced swimmers. The first night of class there is an assessment of the child's
skills and then they will be placed in a group of no more than five children per instructor.
Adult Swim School is for participants 15 years of age and up, beginners to skilled
swimmers. An assessment will be given the first night of class and then participants
are placed in the appropriate group with no more than five participants per instructor.
Water Aerobics classes are offered throughout the year in our Leisure Pool. You do
not have to be a Recreation Center member to enroll in these classes.
Six-week sessions cost $69.
You may pay for the sessions at the front desk.

The CRIS Aquatics department focuses on three important goals- Safety, Security, and
Public Relations. We strive to make sure that all patrons follow proper aquatics
safety rules for the good of everyone. Also, there are at least three lifeguards
on duty any time the aquatics area is open for recreational purposes. Every security
measure is taken to ensure a comfortable and safe environment for all U of M faculty,
staff, and students. In addition, maintaining a friendly and helpful relationship
with all aquatics patrons is a top priority for every CRIS staff member.
