Our Story

1985

The Beginning

Atlanta Swim Academy has been the heart of the East Cobb community providing a year-round curriculum that teaches swimmers from a young age how to enjoy water saftey since 1985. ASA has been family owned and operated since day one and has never moved!

Adding Pool 1!

Throughout the years, as our family has increased in size, we have grown from one pool to three! We started off with just Pool 2, which was originally used for both scuba and swim lessons, then Pool 1 came long in 2000.

Camp H2O

When 2001 came along, Camp H2O came with it. One of our favorite things is watching swimmers grow, and being able to see their love for the water all summer long was something that stuck with us.

Joined United States Swim School Association

In 2006 we joined the United States Swim School Association. By learning from other swim schools around the world, Atlanta Swim Academy is able to continue innovating the learn to swim program. We decided to part with scuba in 2006 and turn our focus strictly to our swim lesson program.

Adding Pool 3!

Our owner, Brad Grzelka, has a saying that he often uses: "Change is hard, but change is good" and this is very true to ASA. In 2008 we build yet another pool- Pool 3- and started an official USA Swimming Team. Pool 3 allowed a place for the team and upper levels of our swim program to practice.

SwimFIT

Thousands of children learn to swim with us every year, but we came to a realization in 2014. We took a survey of our new team and found that a lot of our swimmers didn't nessicarily want to compete in swim meets, but they loved the feeling of being on a team. We then created our non-competitive group known as SwimFIT!

Baby Splash class is added

Atlanta Swim Academy added the FREE 3-5 month Baby Splash class to our program in 2015. Baby Splash is our way of introducing the next generation of swimmers to the sport and getting parents proactive about water safety for their children.

Spring Workshop Committee

Being a part of the Spring Workshop Committee helped create, plan, and come up with ideas to deliver to swim schools across the United States. Their goal was to better swim lessons for everyone and spread knowlege. Brad was able to assist with 3 of the workshops from 2016-2019.

Chair of the Community Impact Committee with USSSA

Atlanta Swim Academy has been featured on many different local news stations over the years. We often participate and get the children involved in events for charity and giving back to the community such as canned food drives and fundraisers. In 2018, Brad Grzelka became the chair of the Community Impact Committee with USSSA. Brad now helps the association and other swim schools give back just like ASA does year-round.
