Swimming Lessons in Polk County

 Jun 10 - Aug 31, 2021


As the hot Florida summer months begin, friends and families make their way to the water to cool off this time of year. Whether it be the backyard pool, a local lake, or the ocean, swimming and boating are two of the most popular summer activities for people living in or visiting Florida. Although these activities can be a fun way to enjoy the summer months, it’s also important to take precaution and practice good safety measures around the water.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children ages four years old and older learn to swim to prevent drowning. Encourage children, adolescents, and adults to learn to swim.
