University Recreation offers water safety  lessons to the University of Arkansas community (faculty/staff/students) at no cost. This program teaches feeling confident in the water with a variety of maneuvers such as: treading water, floating on your back and propelling up from the bottom of the pool to the surface.  Acceptance is on a first come, first served basis and assessed by need.  Water Safety Lesson Request Form
