Swim Lessons


12/10/18-12/11/18 CANCELLATION

The safety and wellness of you and your children are our first priority. With that being said, in anticipation of the inclement Weather, the GAC will be cancelling lessons Monday 12/9 and Tuesday 12/10. Due to all classes being cancelled, all participants will receive a credit on account that can be used for future lessons, programs, or daily use. All credits on account can only be used in-person, so be sure to take advantage of the restricted registration and you can use your credit then. After your child is assessed, go to the front desk with your assessment or completion card, and you will be able to register for the next session and use the credit on account. Credits will be added under the child's name for future registrations. 


Preschool/Parent Child= $9.00 credit on account

Youth/Adult = $10.00 credit on account

GAC Assigned Times Private Lessons= $35

Diving = $10

2nd Grade Extension Lessons = $5

**Restricted Registration** times are reserved for those currently enrolled in lessons. The last week of every group lesson session, participants will be able to register early only with their assessment card. Once you have received your assessment card, you may register in person only for the next session before they open to the remainder of the community.

If it is your first time registering for lessons, you will need to have your child complete a swim assessment in order to be eligible to register for lessons higher than level one for their respective age group. Swim assessments are provided at no additional charge. The Greensboro Aquatic Center reserves the right to move participants down a level for safety purposes. If your child has not been properly assessed and needs to be moved to another level, a spot in another class is not guaranteed for the same session. In the event a spot is not available, a refund or credit may be received.

All lessons are non-refundable.

Credit on account may be allowed with the manager’s approval.





Group restricted registration assessment cards cannot be used for privates.  

Registration can be done online or in person on the allotted dates. 

Once you are scheduled into your time slot for private lessons, the schedule is rigid and is not able to be manipulated.  Lessons are not able to be rescheduled by request and are final upon payment.  Credit for missed lessons will not be given unless there is a GAC pool closure. 

The GAC is a grounded pool and rarely closes for weather.  If extremely inclement weather forces a GAC pool closure, you will be notified by phone and/or email. 


Given the rigid structure of private lessons, please arrive 10 minutes before your private lesson is scheduled to begin to ensure that the swimmer is ready to be in the water for the exact amount of time allotted to them.  We must honor everyone's time equally. 


All lessons are non-refundable
