Adult Lap Swimming

Make time for fitness and improve your technique with Coach Anita Parisi! These adult programs are for swimmers ages 14 & up who are comfortable in the water.

Coached Lap Swim (each session is 4-weeks long)
These adult classes with Coach Anita Parisi are programmed with approximately 2-6 swimmers per lane. There are lanes of beginners that are swimming 1-2 lengths of the pool at a time before stopping and there are lanes of swimmers doing close to 2 miles per workout day. There are lanes in-between. Come join us!

Morning Sessions (Tues./Thurs. 6-7 am + Sat. 6:45-7:45 am) are $55 per month and our **NEW** Lunchtime Sessions (Mon./Wed. 12-1 pm) are $40 per month. Sign up for both morning and lunch sessions in any given month and get $15 off! Adult Lap Swimming runs April-October with registration by month. The full schedule can be found here.

Lap Swimming Basics Classes (individual classes)
We are excited to launch our will new “Lap Swimming Basics” class that will help adults get more comfortable with their lap swimming. The class will focus on technique to get the most out of your lap swimming sessions, whether you swim on your own or with a group. This is prime-time in the water with Coach Anita. Each of these classes is “stand-alone” as the same material will be covered; however, if you would like more practice, you can register for additional sessions with questions and continue to work on technique throughout the summer.

Class Dates & Times:

  • Saturday, May 1 at 7:45 am
  • Saturday, May 29 at 7:45 am
  • Tuesday, June 1 at 7:30 pm
  • Tuesday, June 29 at 7:30 pm
  • Tuesday, Aug 3 at 7:30 pm

Classes are 45 minutes in length and are $10 per swimmer, per class. Mount Sequoyah Pool Members and Clubhaus Fitness Members receive $5 off. Please contact to get your discount code.

Please note: Neither of these programs is a “learn-to-swim” class for adults who are afraid of the water. Anita will be offering private lessons for those swimmers at her house in a more private setting. If you are interested or have questions about the best options for you, email Anita at

Marlins Swim Team

Marlins Swim Team has ended for the 2021 season. Thank you to all our young swimmers and families who joined us! We will announce 2022 details in February, but you can read below to get a sense of the program:

Please join Coach Anita Parisi for the Marlins Swim Team at Mount Sequoyah. The Marlins are a recreational summer swim team at Mount Sequoyah Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Our goal is fun, fitness, and finesse! It’s a great, local program where swimmers can learn endurance and swim competency for sports, health, and life! All four competitive strokes will be covered. Swimmers will partake in friendly competitions with other teams in the league as COVID-19 safety regulations allow.

Please note, swimmers do not need to have prior knowledge of certain strokes to participate; they just need to be able to swim one length of the pool unassisted. All swimmers who are new to the Marlins program and are ages 6 & under must schedule a time for Coach Anita to evaluate their ability and make sure that they are ready for the Marlins Swim Team. If a new Marlins swimmer has had previous lessons with Coach Anita or has already gotten approval from Coach Anita, they are exempt from this requirement.

The full schedule for the 2021 Marlins Swim team can be found here.

Registration for returning swimmers opened on Monday, March 1 at 9:00 am. The general public began registering on Tuesday, March 2 at 8:00 am.

Please let us know if you have questions about the program! Email for questions regarding fees and registration or email for swim specifics.

  • We are currently offering four sessions for Marlins this year: May, June, July, and Fall. Each session has specific time slots for each age group. The May, June, and July sessions are four weeks each and cost $90 per child. The Fall session runs for five weeks and costs $100 per child. You can find the full schedule here.
  • There is a non-refundable $25 deposit per child per session. All balances are due 2 weeks prior to the start of each monthly session. If your plans have changed, you must cancel at least 2 weeks before the next session starts in order to receive a refund less the non-refundable deposit.

We are trying out a new feature on our registration software, so please bear with us! The system should automatically apply a 50% discount for the 3rd child and 4th child you register.

Equipment Requirements & Availability

  • As with previous years, team swimsuits are not required, but they will be available in the coming weeks (we’ll send another update and link to purchase when ordering is open). We recommend that boys wear suits without pockets or order a jammer-style suit and that girls wear one-piece exercise suits.
  • Goggles are mandatory and we recommend “mirrored” ones so that your swimmer does not close their eyes when they swim the backstroke. These will also be available to purchase in the coming weeks.
  • One T-shirt per swimmer per summer is included with registration this year for youth participants. Additional shirts, jackets, and other apparel will be available to purchase in the coming weeks in both youth and adult sizes. We will send you the link to order with all the details.
  • Swim Caps will also be included with youth registration and will be available for pick-up at the first practice of the year.

Swim Meets
Coach Anita will be meeting with the other league coaches in the next few weeks and will have an idea about meets and a meet schedule. As soon as we know the swim meet dates, we will post them on our website. Note that these may not be available until as late as May 1.
