Restricted Registration

Times are reserved for those currently enrolled in lessons. On the last week of every group lesson session, participants will only be able to register early with their assessment card. Once you have received your assessment card, you may register in person only for the next session before it opens 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, call our front desk to schedule your assessment.

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.

Private Swim Lessons

Group restricted registration assessment cards cannot be used for private lessons. 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.

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.
