    Aquatic pathways to GOswim Academy

    GOswim Academy is designed to encourage continued participation in aquatic activity through competitive and recreational/lap swimming.

    The curriculum for the program builds on the core and foundation elements in the GOswim program, as each skill is broken down into segmented and achievable components that streamline and refine technique and enhance the development of efficiency and endurance.
