Swim Lessons

We know your child doesn’t play in the pool with lap swim while on vacation. So why learn how to only do laps?


COMPASS aquatics is more than lap swim.

This program is unique because we teach how to swim using play.

Child & Family Approved

I couldn't believe how much time my child spent sitting on the edge of the pool with other another program. With COMPASS Aquatics my child is in the pool swimming the whole time.
