Swim Lessons

Stay safe this summer and enroll in the Gulf Coast Aquatics, Inc. Learn to Swim Program. We offer swim lessons to all of our communities that are designed to fit everyone’s needs! The Learn to Swim Program is the beginning in the process of developing your child’s water safety and swimming skills. Our teaching approach is learning through games and skill repetition activities that develop their basic water skills while fostering group involvement. Each level within our program incorporates and builds on skills learned in preceding levels. Our swim lesson Instructors are trained American Red Cross Water Safety Instructors. We offer morning & evening classes as well as group lessons, private and semi-private lessons taught in June and July.
