SWIMMING INSTRUCTION


The LCAC Swim School offers learn to swim classes, stroke classes, & private coaching to fit the individual needs of everyone we teach.

LCAC offers two types of swimming lessons, private and group. Group lessons generally have a maximum of 6 students to one instructor but may vary with more depending on the class. Private lessons are one on one that can also be done as a semi private with 1-2 more participants. 

All LCAC swimming lessons are available at the Jenkins Athletic Club located at

6408 Water Ave. Savannah, GA 31406

The 3 lane pool is a 25 yard pool with a 3ft 6in on the shallow side and 8 ft on the deep side. The pool is temperature controlled and kept between 82.5 - 84 degrees depending on the weather.

Group Lessons VS. Private Lessons

Simply put, people learn in different ways. Some do better with individualized attention, while others are driven by a bit of competition. Sometimes, people need one-on-one time to get started with a new skill, and then thrive in a group environment in the future. The team at Premier Aquatic Center understands that individuals have varying needs.

Many parents of young swimmers inquire about whether their child should have private or group swim lessons. Just like your child, the answer is unique and our recommendation depends on your child’s specific circumstances. However, by considering your child’s goals, you may be better equipped for deciding between group or private swim lessons.

Establishing Trust and Comfort – For children who are apprehensive about the water, one-on-one time with a highly trained swim instructor may be the best option for developing trust – both of the teacher and of the process. As the child’s comfort level increases, it may become more helpful to be among other children who are also learning similar skills.

Improving Confidence – Depending on the child’s past experiences and current skills, confidence may first need to be established in private lessons, where the child is learning the basics. However, that confidence can grow by leaps and bounds when the child joins group swim lessons and starts to benefit from a team environment.

Building Skills – Children are like little sponges when it comes to knowledge, and for those who are building upon their skills, it can be very beneficial to be among other students. Little swimmers are incredibly adept at watching how other children are moving in the water, and group lessons allow them the opportunity to mimic the motion.

Overcoming Challenges – For nearly all swim students, a time will come when they find a particular skill challenging. Students who are enrolled in group swim lessons can sign up for supplemental private swim lessons to help them work on the skill in a one-on-one setting.
