Website  /  863.680.3742  /  jdolciato@flsouthern.edu

Florida Southern College offers group swim lessons beginning May 15 running through the summer. Swim lessons run 5 days a week, Monday through Friday, for the two week session and are 45 minutes long. All children must be at least 3 years of age and 100% potty trained to participate.

Florida Southern College trains all its instructors in the American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor course so they are knowledgeable about how to teach safely and effectively.  We keep the class sizes small with student to instructor ratios being 6:1 for the upper levels and 5:1 for the younger levels.  This ensures that each child receives the attention needed to complete each level’s required skills.  While participating in FSC Summer Swim Lessons,  swimmers learn safety, interact with other children, and work on skills for their class level.
