The Arc of the Emerald Coast proudly announces a new partnership with British Swim School. The British Swim School teaches water safety and survival skills to children as young as three months old. The British Swim School, founded by Rita Goldberg in 1981, currently operates in over 215 schools across the United States and Canada. British Swim School will be using its unique and highly effective teaching methods to host classes every Thursday and Friday at The Arc’s Aquatic & Education Center at 341 Holmes Boulevard in Fort Walton Beach. Classes will start Thursday, March 5, 2020.
The Arc’s Aquatic & Education Center opened on May 23, 2017. Since its inception, the center has focused on providing an inclusive facility that the entire community can enjoy, including people with and without disabilities or limitations. The facility is 7,000 square feet and features a 1,400 square-foot zero-entry pool. The building is also home to a state-of-the-art kitchen and nutrition center and offers space that can be used for events, birthday parties, board meetings and more. The Aquatic & Education Center was jointly funded by Impact 100, Destin Charity Wine Auction Foundation and Cox Communications.
“This is a great partnership for the Aquatic & Eduation Center,” said The Arc’s CEO, John Roper. “We use the pool regularly for our clients at The Arc, but it’s exciting to see other members of the community dive in and enjoy the pool.”
