Swimming

Dip your toes into swimming – it’s more fun and healthy than you ever imagined.

Our state of the art swim center has both indoor and outdoor pools and play areas. GLAC water quality systems employ UV-filters to sterilize the water in addition to chemical sanitizers, so you swim in crystal clear, safe, environmentally-friendly water.

Indoor Swim Center Hours
5AM-10PM (M-F)                   6AM-10PM (SAT & SUN)

The climate-controlled indoor lap pool offers comfortable 830 water divided into 25-yard lanes dedicated to lap swimming. The pool depth ranges from 1-5.5 feet, with a water barrier to keep little swimmers in the shallow area. Our fitness members take regularly scheduled aerobics classes in a designated section of the pool, while kids of all ages enjoy the waterslide and waterfall.

Outdoor Swim Center Hours (Seasonal)
11AM-8PM (m-Sat)      11AM-7PM (SUN)

The Olympic-size outdoor pool is open seasonally and features a zero-depth beach entry with plenty of general swim space for the whole family to enjoy. Our fitness members will enjoy the sunshine while keeping in shape in the dedicated 25-yard lap lanes. Kids will scream with delight as they descend the spiral water slide, and will proudly show parents they are brave enough to jump off the 5-meter high-dive platform into the 12.5-foot diving well.

Members and their families can lounge poolside, visit with friends, and enjoy wireless internet service at no charge. Vitality Café offers outdoor food and drink service with a unique and personable experience that members enjoy during the warm summer months.

Swim Lessons
We build confidence and teach water safety so children learn to respect and enjoy the water in any pool, river, lake, or ocean. Whether you have a 6-month-old ready to be exposed to the water for the first time, or you’re getting ready to compete on the swim team this summer, we teach it all.

Great Lakes Athletic Club has partnered with Swim101.  Swim 101 was created out of a love for swimming, a passion for teaching and a desire to make a difference. Centered upon the beliefs and combined knowledge of founders, Brad Robinson and Paul Howard, Swim 101 is unlike your ordinary swim school. Their unique approach starts with considering the needs of each individual student and is designed to make the learn-to-swim process a comfortable and exciting one. With every new milestone, they focus on working to unlock your child’s independence and improve their skills in the water. Swim101’s team of coaches and instructors whose enthusiasm, training and experience make every single lesson an enjoyable one. If you would like to speak to one of the Swim101 team members, you can email at hello@swim-101.com, call 248-572-6900 or follow them on Facebook.
