Indoor Swim Lessons For the Fall

The British Swim School teaches year-round water safety lessons in indoor heated pools — perfect for kicking off the cooler fall season with your little ones. This local program puts safety first and follows a structured, goal-oriented curriculum.

Continuous enrollment at British Swim School is provided so you can sign up whenever you want or need instead of waiting for the next available session or season.

The team of teachers are gentle and patient and the programs are designed to be fun. On day one, children are taught to float independently without floaties — so students can develop water safety skills without relying on assistance.

This unique approach means that students learn unparalleled water safety and survival skills. The British Swim School even hosts “Survival Week” so children learn how to swim with their clothes on so they can be ready for a real-life accident.

How The British Swim School Got Started

Rita Goldberg, a former English national swimmer, founded the British Swim School in 1981. She had recently moved to Florida and was shocked to learn that most kids didn’t take swim lessons until they turned five, even though childhood drowning victims were often younger.

Rita created a unique and highly effective method that helps children as young as 3 months old learn to fall in the water and float on their backs. The British Swim School took off and has expanded over the past 42 years to more than 300 locations in the US and Canada.

The British Swim School’s mission is to help everyone, regardless of their age or ability, to become a confident, safe, and happy swimmer.
