Learn to Swim

Our lessons are taught by American Red Cross certified instructors and we follow all ARC protocols. Our student to instructor ratio is small to ensure ample swim time for students. Classes are open to both members and non-members. To register for all group swim classes, call 770-956-STAR (7827).  Payment is due at time of registration to secure your spot.  For class placement inquiries or general information, email michelle.wood@wellstar.org or call 770-793-7300.

There is a waiting list on all private swim lesson requests at this time. It could be up to 30 days before we are able to address your request. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please keep in mind that we run swim lessons all year round!
