Swimming is an important and incredibly fun life skill.  We are happy to offer swimming lessons to people of all ages.  All our instructors are certified lifeguards and members of the CMU Competitive Swim Team. Let's get swimming!

Here's what you need to know.

  • WHERE?   Colorado Mesa University Pool in the CMU Rec Center

  • WHAT AGE RANGE DO YOU TEACH?  We teach swimming to kids as young as 3 and adults into their senior years.  The CMU pool is kept at competition temperature, which is typically too cold for babies and toddlers to be comfortable.

** If looking for infant/baby swimming classes please contact Linnaea separately as we have contact information available for ISR classes for infants as young as 6 months old.

  • WHEN?  Lesson are held on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, with 9 lessons in each session.

  • HOW LONG?  Each lesson is a half hour.  

  • SCHEDULE:  Our Summer Lessons will be held from 10:00am-12:00pm.

  • LESSON SIZE?

    • We make every effort to limit our group lessons to 3 swimmers per instructor. 

    • Register as soon as possible to reserve a space.

  • COST?

    • Group lessons are $90.00 for 9 lessons. Cost is per swimmer, per session.  

    • Due to minimum wage increases in Colorado, lesson prices are being raised $5 to account for the increase so we can still pay our staff.

    • If you need to cancel a lesson reservation, please email Linnaea (lazaenger@gmail.com) at least one week prior to the session start date.

    • Regular attendance is encouraged as we are unable to offer make-up lessons or pro-rate our lessons.

    • Payment is due at the time of the first lesson. 

  • PARKING?  

    • The best place to park is in the two-level parking structure adjacent to the Rec Center with the entrance on 12th Street and Mesa Ave (across the street from Right Aid) 

    • When CMU is in session, most parking lots at CMU require a parking pass.  However, Rec Center parking lot will be open parking anytime after 4pm.

    • ** During summer session, CMU does not ticket in the garage parking. Free parking will occur all day for lessons and swim.

  • WHAT DO I BRING? 

    • Swimsuit (one piece for girls is best, surf shorts or jammers for boys),

    • Snug-fitting goggles are a must. 

    • Caps help those with longer hair.

    • Goggles & caps are sold at the CMU Rec Center Check-in Desk.
