Swim Lessons

There are no swim lessons this year, but we hope to return in Summer 2022!

Private or semi-private swim lessons are available during the summer for children (must be at least 4 years old and potty-trained) or adults.  Lessons are designed for all levels!  From basic skills + water safety to transitioning to defined strokes or advanced stroke refinement. Participants do not need to be current members of the Recreation Center, but must meet eligibility requirements.  Lessons are open to all Texas Medical Center faculty, staff, residents, students and families and UT System alumni. Lessons typically begin by June and wrap up in August.

Employment Opportunities

We are not hiring any summer positions this year, but we hope to resume in Summer 2022!

Each summer we hire Private/Semi-Private Swim Lesson Instructors and Pool Attendants. Individuals may be employed in just one or any combination of the two positions, depending on experience. Employment is for June through August with training beginning in late May. Applications accepted in February/March. Ideal position for teachers, college students and recent high school graduates with an aquatic background. Employees must be at least 18 years old and a high school graduate by the time lessons begin in June. For specific questions, contact the Program Manager.
