Your First Swim Lesson


First Day of Lessons 

The first day of lessons will be about building a rapport and setting a baseline for where your swimmer is at and what their goals with swimming are. Whether they are just learning to float or wanting to improve their strokes to make the swim team, all are welcome! 

Please be sure to communicate with your instructor regarding any prior lesson experiences, goals for the swimmer, or anything else that may be helpful for us to know to ensure a happy and successful experience! 


What To Bring

- Swimsuit

- Goggles 

- 1-2 towels 

- Happy, smiling faces


Swim Cap -  for kiddos with longer hair, highly recommended

Bathrobe - for colder days, this is the best thing to throw on quickly before/after the lesson


Where To Go

Windermere Prep Location (6189 Winter Garden Vineland Rd, Windermere, FL 34786)

When arriving at the Windermere Prep campus, inform the guard station that you’re coming for swim lessons. After driving through the gate, veer to the right and follow the road until you see the baseball field. You’re welcome to park in any of the spaces in that area near the baseball field/roundabout. 

You should see the athletics building and pool, right next to the roundabout. You should see a covered outdoor area with picnic tables, follow the sidewalk in between that covered area and the pool and enter the back side of the pool through the gate. Your instructor will be on deck in Windermere Lakers attire, if you don’t see them they may be in the pool with another lesson. Feel free to ask anyone on the deck Lakers gear to help you out!

Dorm Location (11625 Lachlan Ln, Windermere, FL 34786) 

Turn off Winter Garden Vineland Road and drive just past the dentist, you should see some black fencing. Park in any of the parallel spots along this road. If you get to the roundabout you have gone too far. Along the black fence there is a door with a passcode on it, let your instructor know you’ve arrived and wait here to be let in!
