Swim Lessons

The swim lessons at the North Palm Beach Pool are offered through Swim with Gills, a local, family-owned business. We offer a variety of skill level classes for all ages.  All our instructors are American Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructors. Classes offered at various times of the day to fit your schedule. 

Swim with Gills is a member of the National Drowning Prevention Alliance, Make A Splash Foundation, and Josh the Otter Program. Their philosophy of teaching is simple.  They do not "force" students to learn.  Swim with Gills teaches water safety by creating trusting and caring relationships.  Your child's comfort zone is maximized through fun and interactive "play".  The parent's comfort zone is maximized with "patience".  After each lesson, your child will be proud to show you what they learned!  You will also be provided with a variety of ways to practice and promote even greater learning in-between lessons.

Group and private lessons are available year-round.  Class days & times vary:  mornings, afternoons, weekends.  Lessons are in 4-5 session blocks.   Class size is limited.
