America’s Boating Club- Grosse Pointe is a unit of the United States Power Squadrons and dedicated to encouraging safe boating through education by teaching classes and seminars in seamanship, navigation and other boating related subjects. America’s Boating Club- Grosse Pointe was organized on February 7, 1939 by Earl Teetzel and a group of 25 Grosse Pointe Yacht Club Members who recognized the need for boating education in the club. Our members are boaters as well as non-boaters who contribute to their communities by promoting safe boating through education. Our activities are centered on the 3 goals of the USPS: Education, Community Service and enjoying the fellowship and camaraderie of fellow members. In addition to conducting both public and member only classes we offer free Vessel Safety Checks to everyone and provide a lifejacket loaner program for kids at local marinas. We also have a full range of activities year round both on and off the water for our members to get together. Our summer on the water activities include Rendezvous, cruises and navigation contests. Winter and off season activities include classes, meetings, dinners, and different events to get together and keep things fun.

On March 1, 2014 Suzette Atrasz Kapla (Michigan educator) decided to full-fill a small business niche that was lacking in Southeastern Michigan. A traveling swim school. (Traveling swim schools are in other states.) We travel all over Southeastern Michigan in the summer months to “home pools” and give premier and personalized curriculum swim lessons and offer lifeguard services for pool parties and special events.
Suntastic Swim School LLC was created from square one (we are NOT a franchise) as MI’s first traveling swim school. After the first summer of success and there being no swim school in the Grosse Pointes and surrounding areas, many clients asked if we could teach their swimmer(s) in the Fall, Winter and Spring months as well. After doing some research in the area, Suntastic Swim School LLC is fortunate enough to rent out Lakeview High School in St. Clair Shores. Suntastic Swim School LLC is now an ALL-YEAR-ROUND swim school!
Suntastic Swim School LLC has taught thousands of swimmers in the Grosse Pointes and surrounding areas and continues to grow!
