Little Gamecocks Learn to Swim
Little Gamecocks Learn to Swim is a summer swimming lesson program for University of South Carolina faculty and staff children (or grandchildren) ages 6 months to 13 years old. Parents must present a current faculty or staff Carolina Card in order to register. New to the program, adult lessons will be available during our 7 p.m. lesson time.
Little Gamecocks Learn to Swim registration will go live April 2 through the USC online store. We will be offering three sessions this year, keeping the three time slots (5 p.m. for parent and child and preschool levels; 6 p.m. for preschool and learn to swim levels; 7 p.m. for learn to swim and adults).
Session One: June 4-15
Session Two: June 18-June 29
Session Three: July 23-August 3
Day one of each lesson will be a swim evaluation based on the Red Cross swim levels for each age group. These standards can be found on the Red Cross website if you would like to start familiarizing you and your child to the water. Can’t wait to see you this summer!
