To minimize health and safety risks to Duke students, faculty, staff and the larger community, Duke Recreation & Physical Education facilities have temporarily closed. Communication regarding future hours of operation and programming will be provided on our website and social media platforms (@dukerec).
Ages 13 & up. Adult level classes help teens or adults overcome their fear of the water and learn the skills to achieve a degree of water competency. Our team of instructors will help participants gain basic aquatic skills and/or refine the participant’s swimming strokes to meet individual goals.
We are always taking registrations for Private and Semi-private lessons.
Participants can view class dates and register online through their account on MyRec. Registration opens on the 15th of each month.
More information about MyRec and instructions on how to create a profile can be found on our MyRec webpage.
Lessons are taught at Brodie Aquatic Center and are scheduled on Mondays/Wednesdays or Saturdays. Instructors have a range of experiences and can effectively instruct swimmers looking for technique help as well as workout planning, including new to advanced swimmers and tri-athletes.
The American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim Program provides instruction to help swimmers of all ages and abilities develop their swimming and water safety skills. It is designed to give students a positive learning experience. Learn-to-Swim teaches aquatic and safety skills in a logical progression. The objective is to teach people to swim and to be safe in, on and around the water.
