Greensboro Aquatic Center Learn to Swim Fund

In partnership with Guilford County Schools, the Greensboro Aquatic Center developed a curriculum-based ‘Learn to Swim’ healthy lifestyle program that debuted in 2011.

Students in the ‘Learn to Swim’ program receive instruction, both in the GAC’s "wet” classrooms and in the 25-yard warm up pool, and are taught techniques to foster a systematic progression of swimming skills that will maximize their development over a series of ten 40-minute classes. The skills gained in the ‘Learn to Swim’ program are not only potentially life-saving, but also help students develop a physically active lifestyle, improve overall health and fitness and expose them to additional swimming opportunities and other aquatic related activities.

The goal of the program is to teach every second grade student in Guilford County water safety skills. Beginning with 257 students from four schools taking lessons at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in it first year, the 2018-2019 school year included a record high 1,754 graduates from 31 schools who were provided lessons at six different locations in Greensboro and High Point.

The Learn to Swim Fund will support the ongoing annual expenses of the Learn to Swim program.

 

Please note, the minimum gift amount for the Learn to Swim Fund is $100.
