Key Log Rolling

Key Log Rolling

A Lumberjack's wildest dream, Key Log rolling involves two competitors, each on one end of a free-floating log in a body of water. The athletes battle to stay on the log by sprinting, kicking the log, and using a variety of techniques as they attempt to cause the opponent to fall off. Think you have what it takes?

Swimming Lessons

Want to learn how to swim or to refine your swim strokes? Then taking swim lessons provided by the Aquatics program is the place to go! Located in the natatorium of the Mashouf Wellness Center, we are currently rebuilding our swim lesson program in order to meet the needs of our students as well as teach a life-long skill. Our instructors are Red Cross Lifeguard certified and have trained to teach lessons to the best of their abilities. The program can’t wait for lessons to start again, and it is all thanks to you! If you have any more questions regarding the lessons, feel free to reach out to the Swim Lesson Management staff at swimlesson@mail.sfsu.edu and they will reach out to help you with whatever you need!
