Keiser University and Superhero Swim Academy were recently featured on WPTV NBC West Palm Beach to share information about a partnership formed to offer a limited number of free swimming lessons at Keiser University’s Flagship Campus pool to those who qualify.
On August 9, 2021, Keiser University hosted Florida Lt. Governor Jeanette Nuñez and state and local officials to announce fundraising efforts to build an aquatic center and Olympic pool on the university’s 100-acre Flagship Campus in West Palm Beach, Fla. Once complete the aquatic center will serve as a community resource to swimmers of all ages and abilities and the future home to the Seahawks’ NAIA Championship swimming teams.
The partnership with Superhero Swim Academy, which began in June, is part of Keiser University’s commitment to ensuring area children and families learn the valuable and life-saving skill of swimming and help them develop confidence in the water.
