UT Tyler Rec Sports Summer Programs
Levels are parent/toddler, beginner and intermediate.
Parent/Toddler:
The parent/toddler class is designed for children and their guardians to take the class together. The ideal age range for the children is 6 mo. to 3 yrs. The class will go over child safety around the pool as well as teach the parents techniques to encourage the children to be more comfortable in the water.

Beginner:
The beginner class is designed for children between the ages of 3 – 5 years. A child can usually start the beginner class as soon as they are old enough to participate in a class setting without needing a parent nearby. This class will go over the basics of water comfort, breath control, floating, gliding, kicking and coordinated swimming movements on front and back.

Intermediate:
The intermediate class is designed for children that can swim with a crude front crawl for about five yards. This class will refine the student's front crawl with special emphasis on rhythmic breathing and then branch out into other swimming strokes; back crawl, elementary backstroke and breaststroke.

Beginner Swim Team (Ages 5 – 17)
8 – 9 a.m.
May 30 – July 29
UT Tyler Herrington Patriot Center
$80 per session (HPC members), $130 per session (non-HPC members)

Children must be able to swim 50 yards free style or front crawl without stopping to qualify.
The UT Tyler Beginner Swim Team Meet will be 9 a.m. Saturday, July 18 at the Tyler YMCA. The entire meet should last around 30 – 45 minutes. For more information, call 903.565.5602.
