Fish out of Water 

Join us in our #FishOutOfWater Instagram campaign! Show us how you're being a fish out of water while you are staying at home. 

  • Take a picture of you or your children wearing your swim attire (goggles, cap, fins, bathing suit if comfortable, paddles, etc) doing anything!
  • This can be you working out in this attire, baking, reading, playing video games, or just hanging out! Post your activity on your Instagram account with #VCUFishOutOfWater.
  • Each week we will pick our favorite Fish Out of Water and post it on the Rec Sports Instagram

Swim Lessons at Home

Swim lessons don’t have to stop just because the pools are closed. There are many activities that you can do at home in your bathtub and even on land that teach basic water safety and basic swimming techniques. By playing these games and singing these songs each time your child takes a bath, your child will be pool ready, when they open back up!

Most of our games require no equipment and can be modified based on the skill level of your child. These songs and games are suitable for infants- children 6 years of age.

All of our videos are available on our YouTube Virtual Aquatics playlist.
