Fort Lauderdale


We invite everyone to be a part of a great tradition. Regardless of whether your child has no experience in the water, or is developing their strokes, Pine Crest Swimming has a place for them.

Pine Crest Swimming is made up of two divisions; 1) Pine Crest Swim Team (Novice, White, Green I, Green II and Senior Groups) and 2) Swim4Life Swim Lessons.

The Swim4Life Lesson Program structure will consist of eight (8) levels each with it's own set of criteria.  Once the level criteria is mastered the lesson coach will inform the Lead Instructor.  The Lead Instructor will review the skills and approve advancement if level criteria is met.  At the successful completion of Level 8, the swimmer will be able to advance to the Novice Group, the first level of the swim team.

The Swim4Life award system is a positive reinforced system for completing a level.  A Swim4Life certificate will be given to each swimmer within a short period of the child starting in the program.  This certificate will have each level on the front and each level criteria on the back.  At the successful completion of each level a "Panther Paw" will be given to the swimmer to be placed on their certificate.

The Swim4Life Lessons are available year-round and keep in mind that the pool is equipped with a huge heating system that maintains the water temperature between 85 - 88 degrees during the cooler months.
