Lap Swimming Opportunity

Since our new outdoor pool is a venue focused on leisure and relaxation, and our indoor lap pool is under renovation, we saw the need to provide a lap swimming option. We are fortunate to be able to collaborate with the YMCA of Memphis & the Mid-South to offer lap swimming opportunities to our students and members at no additional cost. We are very grateful to the YMCA for their generosity in offering our swimmers access to their aquatic facilities during the renovation period.

Students and members who are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity may enroll in the lap swimming program by completing and submitting this document>

Please note that some YMCA pools are now closed for the season. 

For questions about whether your membership is currently valid or about this lap swimming opportunity, please contact us at campus-recreation@memphis.edu

Free American Heart Association BLS Certification Classes

The University of Memphis Campus Recreation Department is pleased to offer a series of FREE American Heart Association Basic Life Support Certification classes throughout the year, thanks to a grant provided by Blue Cross-Blue Shield.
Limited spaces are available. Once you register for this class, you MUST attend. Participants who register for a class and fail to show up, arrive late, or leave before the class ends will not be able to register for future courses.
The goal of the Basic Life Support Course is to train participants to save lives of victims in cardiac arrest through high-quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The American Heart Association designed the BLS course to teach healthcare professionals how to perform high-quality CPR individually or as part of a team. BLS skills are applicable to any healthcare setting. BLS students will learn rescue techniques for adults, children and infants.
This course will include a combination of videos, skills practice and testing. A written test will be administered at the end of the course.
The BLS for Healthcare Providers covers core materials, including

  • Adult, child, and infant CPR, including one and two-rescuer scenarios and use of the bag-valve mask and other breathing barriers
  • Foreign-body airway obstruction (Heimlich maneuver) for adult, child, and infant (conscious and unconscious)
  • AED (Automated external defibrillation) on both adult and child
  • Special resuscitation situations and cardiopulmonary emergencies
