WATER SAFETY

Swimming is one the most popular activities during the warmer months, especially out here in the Texas Panhandle. The ATC takes water safety seriously. Help your family stay out of harm’s way by enrolling your children in swim lessons.

For the safety of you and your guests, certified lifeguards are on duty during hours of operate. Our ATC certified swim instructors teach in a safe, friendly environment, focusing on water safety, swimming technique, form, breathing and speed.
