Life Enrichment Program
Our mission is to promote health, wellness and fitness for adults through swimming. Our vision at the GAC is to be a premier resource for aquatic health and fitness and to make living an active, healthy and fit lifestyle a primary goal through swimming.
Adaptive Aquatic Lessons
Adaptive swim lessons use applied behavior analytic strategies to teach children with special needs. Lessons are created for, but not limited to, those with behavioral, communication or sensory challenges.
Instruction utilizes adaptive teaching strategies to accommodate swimmers with individual abilities, needs and goals.

Our mission is to promote health, wellness, and fitness for the adaptive community at the GAC. Our vision at the GAC is to prepare participants to be able to swim and exercise on their own. Our instructors will work with each participant to achieve their goals. One of our goals is to reach as many individuals as possible from age 6+ in the adaptive community.
GAC Waves is a non-competitive program that focuses on stroke refinement, endurance and speed.
