SwimAmerica of Gainesville

SwimAmerica of Gainesville is a learn to swim program for all levels. Classes are offered for children ages 12 months and up plus adult classes. Our philosophy is to promote awareness and water safety by giving each swimmer a foundation of skills that will foster a lifelong love of the water. We individualize each lesson so that each swimmer progresses at his or her own level of readiness. By offering each child the opportunity to master both development and safety skills, we instill confidence and enthusiasm in the water. We firmly believe that the consistent reinforcement of our year-round, one or two day a week lessons builds success, confidence and smiles.

Our Parent / Tot class is a group class taught with a parent or guardian in the water with the child. The class is designed to acclimate the child to the water and prepare him / her for more formal classes. Basic skills, such as kicking, floating, proper positioning and reaching for the wall, are taught through songs and games.

Our group lessons are offered for children ages 3 and older. Every level of swimming is offered from the non-swimmer to the advanced stroke technique class. Children are placed in groups according to the skill level they have achieved (Level 0-10). Class size is kept small with one or two instructors per group, depending on the ability level.

Gator Swim Club

Gator Swim Club (GSC) is a year-round competitive swim program specializing in helping swimmers improve through the pursuit of excellence in life and sport. GSC accommodates all levels of swimming from novice to masters to professionals.

Sun Country Sports members have the opportunity to join Gator Swim Club at Sun Country if they have progressed through the SwimAmerica program and/or been approved by a GSC or SwimAmerica instructor.
