Where to Take Swim Lessons In Pensacola

As I write this post, I am currently watching my children learn how to swim the backstroke. We are in our third year of swim lessons at Milestone Aquatic Club. We chose Milestone mainly for the location but we have been thrilled with the lessons, the instructors and the progress that both of our children have made with weekly lessons.

Summer is almost here, the pools are heating up and the kids are ready to jump in. Learning how to swim is an important skill for children to have even if you don’t own a pool. There are many options for swim lessons around Pensacola.
