SwimLabs Lake Forest Facility
Last week I took my own tiny orange down to check it out and experience a swim lesson first hand. I was a little perplexed at first by the location in a nice business center off Bake Parkway, because I wouldn’t have visualized a swim school there. I was even more surprised to walk into their beautiful, spacious facility, which held a modern waiting area with three SwimLabs pools behind glass doors.
The waiting area is made with the comfort of parents in mind. It has a nice set of chairs, Wifi, three big screen TV’s for you to watch your kids, a coffee station, and even a play area for little siblings.
Going into the winter months (or as winter as we get in SoCal), SwimLabs is a great option for Orange County swim lessons for kids given its cozy indoor setting with 85-90 degree heated pools to avoid chattering lips on little ones.
There are also showers and changing rooms so you can bring a change of clothes and have your kiddos walk out with the shower out of the way.
SwimLabs Swim Lessons
When Morgan started her lesson I was in awe.
With multiple video cameras equipped in the pools, kids can do a practice stroke or kick, and then immediately watch themselves on time delay on the screen above.
With group lessons, this works beautifully, as kids can watch themselves on the bench while the next swimmer takes their turn.
The pool also has a “monkey bar” on top of the jet, so kids can hold on and practice what it feels like to have their body buoyed in the correct position, along with practicing their kicks and side breathing. It is so brilliant. Doesn’t that just make sense?
Our instructor, Lyndsey, was so loving and supportive. In just 30 short minutes, Morgan had improved her kicks tremendously. When we got in the car afterwards Morgan yelled, “I want to go back every day!!”
