And our team will make sure it stays that way!

The SwemKids Way

SwemKids is nonprofit school-based program that teaches children introductory swimming lessons and water safety skills as a part of their school's curriculum. This model ensures that children are exposed to the water early and gain important life-saving skills to make sure they are safe while having fun!


Bring SwemsKids To Your School

We partner with elementary and middle schools to host our programming and transport students to local pools for 8 days of swimming lessons and water safety instruction. Contact us today to bring our program to your school!

Lessons are currently held at CT Martin Natatorium, Martin Luther King Jr Recreation Center and Aquatics Center, and Washington Park Natatorium in Atlanta, Georgia. More locations coming soon.
