Registration

Registration for Fall 2020 has officially CLOSED. Due to COVID-19, we had to set a firm close date. Thank you for understanding.

We are happy to announce that we will be hosting a Fall 2020 session that will be open to members and non-members of our facility. In the light of COVID-19, we will be taking many precautions and abiding by guidelines set forth by the Illinois Department of Public Health, Champaign-Urbana Public Health Department, University of Illinois, and the American Red Cross. Safety of our users and staff has always been, and will remain our priority even through these challenging times. Some of the initiatives we are taking are listed below:

  • Reduced capacities. All classes have been reduced by 50% (except for our parent/child and private lessons)
  • Organized a 15+ minute gap between the end of one session and beginning the next
  • Any toys/equipment will be provided at a 1:1 ratio per participant
  • All swim instructors and staff will be wearing a double-layered lycra facial covering
  • Spectators will be stationed 6-8ft apart
  • Overall capacity of 50 or less within the pool area at all times
  • Advanced levels will be taught primarily from the deck (Level 4+)
  • Logistics for pool deck entry/exit will be organized by on-deck coordinator to limit patron/participant interaction
  • Locker rooms will be sanitized hourly by facilities staff; touch points within pool deck area will be sanitized between sessions

Registration Dates:

  • Members can register between Sep. 1 – Sep. 22
  • Non-members can register between Sep 8 – Sep. 22
  • Classes will begin September 26 and conclude by November 19

New Registration Process!

Over the last few months, we have been working especially hard at creating a new way for clients to register in our Learn-to-Swim program. We are not fully online just yet, but you can reserve your spot online for yourself or another family member. After securing a spot in your desired class, you will receive an email confirmation and information on how to process payment for your course(s). 

Payment Process

After creating your account with us and selecting your course(s) you would like to sign up for, you can pay for your classes online as well! If you have any questions, please contact us at learntoswim@illinois.edu. We are always happy to help you however we can!

Reservation How-To:

  • Go to go.illinois.edu/CampusRecOnline and Login with the username and password
    • If you don’t have a username/password, click “Do not have a login?” You will be prompted to enter your Member Number (UIN; can be found on your iCard) and Date of Birth. Please email dcr-memberservices@illinois.edu if you have additional questions, or call Member Services at ARC at 217-333-3806 to have them send your credentials or reset your password.

After you have successfully logged in, select “Program Registration.” Click the blue “select” button underneath aquatics. Click “view programs” under the appropriate classes you wish to view. Once you find your desired class, select the option to “add to cart.” A waiver page will appear for you to view before clicking “continue.” If you need to add your child as a “sub member” you may do so. Make sure after doing so that the appropriate check box is filled in to complete registration for the course.

Parent/Child

Children ages 6 months-3 years work directly with their parents in this class to develop comfort in the water, basic skills to prepare them for swimming, and water safety. This program is designed to orient children and parents to the aquatic environment and lay a foundation that will assist with swimming development. It is not intended to teach children to swim or survive in the water on their own, but to provide parents with useful information and techniques to orient their children to the water environment. Parents are REQUIRED to participate in this level.
