Learn to Swim Program For Kids

Florida Swim Company offers private and semi-private swim lessons for kids and teens. Our Learn To Swim program teaches skills in easy progressions starting with full support from the swim instructor and slowly removing the support - just like teaching a child to ride a bike with training wheels and taking them away.  Once the child can swim on their own, we will move into stroke refinement to sharpen all of the different swim strokes they have learned.

All swim instructors are certified, insured and thoroughly background checked. You will be given your swim teacher's personal biography and contact information before lessons begin. The ultimate goal is for us to teach your child how to get back to safety if he or she were ever to accidentally fall into a pool or other body of water. We will do this by running children through a few different drills throughout swim lessons to teach the the automatic response of turning around in the water, and swimming back to either the pool wall or pool steps. The benefit of taking swimming lessons in your own pool is teaching your kids every aspect of your pool and how to get to safety no matter where they were to fall in. Swim instructors will challenge your child while keeping lessons fun with different games and pool toys. Check out what skills will be taught below:
