Do you enjoy swimming and love traveling? So do we, so let's have some fun and "travel" together apart!

UAB URec is offering a self-paced, self-recording swimming program, where you log your laps it would take for you to reach your dream destination.

Start your journey by reserving a swimming lap lane through our Campus Rec mobile app and come swim during your reserved time anytime between March 1 and April 30, the sooner the better.

Miles will be converted to laps, meaning 1-mile travel distance = 1 lap length of the pool (25 yards). Participation is free and participants will self-record their completed distances by logging their laps via Online Form or by scanning a QR code that is located throughout the Aquatics Center.

Remember, lap lanes can be reserved for 45 minutes and you may make the reservation up to 48 hours in advance. Just show your confirmation to the lifeguard on stand and get to swimming!

Did we mention, you can win a new swimming gear? Complete two or more trips and you will receive a custom "Swim to Break" swim cap!

The goal of the Swim to Summer Break is to make it to Tortuga Island on time before the end of April.
