  • Level 2 Learn coordination of front/back crawl, breathing techniques, jumping, and elementary backstroke. Prerequisite is ability to do a supine and prone float with no assistance.
  • Level 3 Children will refine their freestyle and backstroke and learn breaststroke, and diving. Students must be able to swim half a lap of freestyle and backstroke before enrolling in this class.
  • Level 4 Children will continue to refine their freestyle and backstroke, coordinate their breaststroke, learn butterfly, and improve diving. Students must know freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke, and be able to swim at least two laps before enrolling.

YOUNG ADULT CLASSES

  • Lessons for the Competitive Swimmer Open to swimmers who are looking to continue to improve their swimming technique. Every lesson will be a mixture between a workout and personalized feedback.
  • Guard Start: Lifeguarding TomorrowThis is a Red Cross Class for those who are interested in becoming lifeguards but are still too young to become one. Participants will learn rescue skills, first aid, and CPR, and they will demonstrate their skills in a friendly competition with the University guards. Prerequisites include the ability to swim front crawl for 25 yards while breathing to the front or side and the ability to tread water for one minute using arms and legs. Open only to ages 8-14.

ADULT CLASSES

  • Adult Swimming Lessons – FREE! - Adult lessons are for ALL levels. This is a great class if you are looking to feel more comfortable in the water, if you want to improve your technique so you can swim effortlessly, or if you want to learn something new.
  • Adult Water Aerobics – FREE! - Water aerobics is a fun form of exercise for those who want to stay in or get in shape. Exercising in water is ideal because the water provides significant resistance while reducing the impact on the joints.

Adult Swim Meet

posted Jul 5, 2016, 3:14 PM by Ken Irvine

Dear Membership, this is to remind all interested adults to sign up for the 2016 adult swim meet that will take place July 16 starting about 12:00 noon (or right after the swim team’s home meet finishes).  The adult swim meet is a fun event where adults get to compete in 25 yard races that include traditional swimming strokes and some quirky events like the doggie paddle (barking while competing is encouraged), feet first swimming, and 4x25 t-shirt relays.  Sign up information and sheets will be posted on the bulletin board at the pool.  


Any adult can participate – it is not limited to adults with children on the swim team. 

 

If there is a large demand for a longer individual events, or different events, the meet sponsors will add events (or remove any events that no one signs up for).   Please email Robert Roesener with event or race-length ideas.  He will discuss any new ideas with those who sign up on the day of the adult meet.  His email is roesener@rutgers.edu.  Finally, anyone who wants to volunteer to be a captain for the day, please let Robert know.  Everyone who signs up will be assigned to one of the two teams:  the slugs (a/k/a the sea slugs) and the snails.
