Kids Lessons at SwimLabs

We teach kids the correct way to swim so they’re safer, faster.

SwimLabs is a highly-successful, fun and innovative way for your child to learn to swim correctly, safely and quickly. We are often the place that “works” when other lessons haven’t.

We believe learning to swim should be fun, not intimidating.

Our small, warm water pools help children discover confidence and joy in the water without the fears and distractions that can come with large, crowded swim classes. Our highly-trained instructors can stay focused on your child throughout the lesson and your child can stay focused on the joy of learning to swim.

Kids learn best by seeing. So that’s exactly how we teach them to swim.

We use innovative technology including instant video feedback and mirrors on the bottom the pool to help even the youngest new swimmers learn the correct technique, apply what they learn instantly, and quickly gain the skills they need to be water safe. This is the same technology Olympic swimmers use to train, yet it is also the perfect way for toddlers to get in the swim of things. Our technology helps us teach kids the most correct methods of swimming, making them safer and giving them a stronger foundation to continue to improve and excel in swimming as they grow.

Fun and welcoming for parents, too.

As a parent, you’ll enjoy the fun and the advantage of getting to see your child’s learning take place right before your eyes on our video screen. 

Safer swimmers start in the Lab.

Learning to love and respect the water is an important step for your child and your family and we are proud to offer the absolute best way to learn to swim quickly and correctly.


PRIVATE LESSONS

At SwimLabs we offer private, semi-private, three-person private, and four-person private lessons for children.  The private and semi-private swimming lessons are structured to advance through the SwimLabs progression at an accelerated rate based on your child’s abilities.  We use all the tools, videos, mirrors, and swimming aids to create the perfect one-on-one or two-on-one learning environment. 

Our three-person and four-person private lessons are ideal for families with multiple children and busy schedules. These private lessons offer flexible scheduling and the opportunity to request the same instructor for every lesson. For families with multiple children, our instructors are successfully able to work with different ages and abilities during these lessons.


GROUP LESSONS

CLASS SIZE

In our group classes, we guarantee no more than 4 students in any class. This allows our instructors to effectively spend quality time with each student in the class, ensuring that everyone progresses evenly.

SKILLS TAUGHT

SwimLabs is a competitive swim school. This means that while we are focused on ensuring that each and every student is “water safe”, we also ensure that all of our students know how to swim each of the four competitive strokes competently.

SCHEDULING

At SwimLabs we always have a rolling start date, meaning you can start your swimmer at any point. We schedule group lessons in increments of four weeks with a consistent day and time. Because our group lessons are in such high demand, we recommend signing up for Auto Pay, which reserves your child’s spot indefinitely until you notify us otherwise.

SPECIAL NEEDS

SwimLabs has developed two unique programs specifically tailored to teaching clients with special needs. All of our instructors go through specific SwimLabs training for teaching clients with special needs how to swim or to aid them in their therapy.  Please contact your local SwimLabs for any inquiries about the program.

Learn-to-Swim Special Needs Program

The Learn-to-Swim program is for individuals with the goal of pool safety and learning the strokes.

Special Needs Therapy Program

The Therapy program is for individuals with the goal of loosening muscles, building muscle tone, neurological stimulation, relaxation, etc.


100 Stroke Club

As a test of water safety, endurance, and proper stroke technique, SwimLabs introduces the 100 Stroke Club. At SwimLabs, we strive to get every swimmer to swim 100 consecutive strokes for at least one of the four competitive strokes. For many young swimmers, 100 strokes will allow them to swim several laps in a standard pool. Can’t swim 100 strokes? Don’t worry, swimmers progress as they learn and practice; 25 strokes today, 50 next month, and then 100!
