Swim Program: We Swim Too

LAB Sports Inc & We Swim Too Class Descriptions

Our six-level Learn-to-Swim program is unlike anything offered by other learn to swim programs. The Learn-to-Swim program focuses on building skills one step at a time. By giving them the opportunity to master one element before moving on to the next, our kids’ swim classes make it easy to build confidence in the water. During their swim lessons, children will spend time on the following six levels:

  • Level 1: Introduction to Water Skills: Students will learn how to feel comfortable in the water and safely enjoy it.
  • Level 2: Fundamentals of Aquatic Skills: Children will learn basic swimming skills.
  • Level 3: Stroke Development: Additional guided practice will help students improve their skills.
  • Level 4: Stroke Improvement: Kids will gain confidence during swim lessons, improve their stroke and gain additional aquatic skills.
  • Level 5: Stroke Refinement: Guidance allows kids to refine their strokes and become more efficient swimmers.
  • Level 6: Swimming and Skill Proficiency: Students will learn to swim with ease and efficiency, and gain the ability to swim smoothly over greater distances. Swimmers will also have the option to participate in more advanced courses.

We believe that swim everyone deserves to have an incredible swim experience. We want to know your swim story whether you’re a first time swimmer, have had a bad water experience, or just need to work on your strokes. Our personalized and intimate setting group and private (one-on-one or group) swim lessons are designed with fun in mind for individuals of all ages. We offer students a unique experience learning the various swim techniques as well as important information about water safety.

 

The program is designed for individuals 6 months old all the way up to adults, and students progress through the levels at their own pace, mastering the skills in one level before advancing to the next. Each level of our Learn-to-Swim class includes training in basic water safety and helping others in an emergency, in addition to stroke development.

 

Class is only held if weather permits. Classes may have to be cancelled or moved to another time due to weather conditions, pool maintenance, pool events, or other issues.

Learn how to swim at our private pool in Oviedo or at your home. Lessons offered in the morning and evening on designated days. Additional fee for travel lessons to your home.

**Parents and guests may observe from designated seating area. **Parents or guests may be asked to leave lesson if a distraction for students.
