"Gwinnett Swim is an invaluable resource for swimming instructions to children and adults of all ages. The skilled instructors take time to get to know their student's strengths and weaknesses which allows them to personalize the lesson as needed. My kids had an excellent experience with Gwinnett Swim and I would highly recommend them to anyone." ~ Melissa
