Aquatic Programs

Come swim with us!

AU RecFit offers a variety of programming to meet the needs of the active or occasional swimmer in the Reeves Aquatic Center. From private adult swim lessons to free events like our dive-in movies, events are available to current AU students and RecFit members

Adult Swim Lessons

The aquatics programs offers private, semi-private, and group lessons instructed by certified water safety instructors. Private/semi-private run 60 minutes and the lesson dates/times are based on participant and instructor's schedules. Group lessons are scheduled in advance based on the swim series.

American University does not offer any youth lessons at this time. Please visit the Nation's Capital Swim Club website for information about our third party vendor whom rents the Aquatics Center.
