Consent Form 

Swim School Registration forms must be turned in no later than the Thursday prior to the first night of the session that you will be attending. The registration form and fee must be brought to the Student Recreation and Fitness Center at 620 Echles St. The fee is $100 per participant. Make checks out to The University of Memphis. 

Children's Swim School is for children four years of age to 14 years of age. PLEASE do not register your child if they are not four. This makes it difficult for the child, the instructor, and the other participants. We teach children who are beginners to advanced swimmers. The first night of class there is an assessment of the child's skills and then they will be placed in a group of no more than five children per instructor. 

Adult Swim School is for participants 15 years of age and up, beginners to skilled swimmers. An assessment will be given the first night of class and then participants are placed in the appropriate group with no more than five participants per instructor.

 About Aquatics

The CRIS Aquatics department focuses on three important goals- Safety, Security, and Public Relations.  We strive to make sure that all patrons follow proper aquatics safety rules for the good of everyone.  Also, there are at least three lifeguards on duty any time the aquatics area is open for recreational purposes. Every security measure is taken to ensure a comfortable and safe environment for all U of M faculty, staff, and students.  In addition, maintaining a friendly and helpful relationship with all aquatics patrons is a top priority for every CRIS staff member.
