Why swimming?

Studies demonstrate that children who continuously take swimming lessons have more advanced cognitive and problem-solving abilities than other children the same age.

Swimming is also excellent exercise. It strengthens the whole body and conditions the heart and lungs. At Watermelon Swim, we teach swimming, safety, and survival from birth through adulthood.

Watermelon Swim swim classes in the Lutz area are plenty of FUN, too. With group classes, challenging activities, and child-approved instructors, we help people of all ages and abilities develop a love of swimming.

Why choose our swimming lessons in Lutz

Watermelon Swim is a local, family-owned swim school with over 40 years of experience teaching a proven curriculum. We place a serious emphasis on building Water Smart communities. This means being aware of accident prevention and teaching young swimmers what to do if they accidentally fall into a pool. We also ensure learning to swim is exciting and enjoyable.

Each Watermelon Swim facility is entirely indoors, on our premises – no renting space at a local pool or gym! This means we hold lessons rain or shine, and your skin will be protected from the harsh Florida sun. Our pools are monitored by state-of-the-art systems, ensuring our pools are clean, warm, and inviting year-round.

We carefully select each Watermelon Swim instructor for their professional knowledge, engaging personality, and safety awareness. Before they begin teaching our students, every instructor is required to participate in at least 100 hours of training both in and out of water.

Our instructors have lifeguard and water safety training and certifications, and CPR and first aid certifications. Each swimmer is taught emergency responses to water emergencies, accident prevention, and general pool etiquette.

Instructors also participate in continuing education through the United States Swim School Association. Each one must attend at least three continuing education courses each year.

Keep swimming,
keep growing

Program Overview

Our learn-to-swim program has a low, 4:1 student-to-instructor ratio. This low ratio permits us to give each student personalized attention and ensure the safety of everyone in the pool. Every class is structured to build on the skills and techniques taught in the level before, so students can easily progress from one level to the next.

The goal is to gain a strong foundation of knowledge and only level up once they complete each requirement without using personal flotation equipment.

As students grow in their abilities, our advanced swim lessons continue to boast a low, 6:1 student-to-instructor ratio, allowing stroke technique to be refined in a small group setting. Parent and child classes have a 6:1 ratio as well, allowing individualized attention, while creating a group setting that promotes socialization for your babies.

We offer the following swimming classes at our indoor, state-of-the-art pool in Lutz, year-round.

The Basics

We typically start children at Level 1 unless your child has previous swimming experience. When you register, we will ask plenty of questions to learn about your child’s experience with swimming, if any. Each level is a bit different, so we need to understand what skills your child knows before placing them in a class.

After your child is placed in a class, our Deck Supervisors, Instructors, and Managers carefully monitor their progress, making sure that they’re challenged without being overwhelmed.

We’re often asked how long it takes for a child to learn how to swim. The answer is that it depends on the child. Each student learns at their own pace, and some may master some skills more quickly than others.

Be patient and have fun. We’ve found the best results happen when your child receives plenty of encouragement and regular practice.

Our goal is to teach children a safe love of the water and how to master each skill to achieve their goals.
