NMSU University Recreation will NOT be holding Swim School or Outlaws Swimming for 2022.
NMSU prioritizes the health of its program participants, staff, and the Las Cruces community, and this decision has been made in order to ensure a successful recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

NMSU Rec Sports is home to Outlaw Swimming, a program that provides swim instruction in a team setting. Our certified coaches work with developmental, competitive, and master swimmers focusing on technique, fitness, and a love for the sport of swimming.
