History

Welcome to AVAC Swim School®. Since 1964, our mission has been to create comfortable & confident swimmers who are safer around water. We provide a personalized customer experience, & employ fun-loving & knowledgeable individuals who embody the spirit of play in a nurturing, safe, family-centered environment. Our year-round swimming lessons are held in our custom-built indoor pool heated to 90º. Swimmers are grouped by age & ability, to create the most successful environment for our students.

AVAC Swim School® was started in 1964 by Jim & Linda Theiring in a leased outdoor pool. In 1974, the Theirings & the Shanks came together to buy the land where AVAC® is currently located. They started with the outdoor pool & athletic club – for 26 years they taught lessons seasonally in the outdoor pool. In 2000, they took on the goal of building a state of the art indoor facility where lessons are taught year round.
