Thinking to book for 2021? All you need to know
Wow, we cannot believe it is that time of year again. Ready to begin a new year with Swim Lab International disABILITY Development weeks spread out across the world. As our team and services expand we have to recognise change and develop in order to achieve our strategic outcomes. “Assisting and supporting as many families as possible”.
In order to do this our focus has to switch slightly to providing our core services in Lanzarote and building our team of professionals to be able to deliver additional weeks in various locations.
Therefore our Lanzarote based team will not be delivering weeks externally but instead continue to provide weeks in Lanzarote and deliver training and development programmes to our expanding team through Swim Lab Academy. That way we can maintain our high standards and reach more families who need our support. #togetherwearestronger
On Monday 6th January 2020 at 00.01 our booking system will open. This will allow you to select only Lanzarote dates for 2021 across both training centres. When booking please remember the following information for selecting training centres as Swim Lab International will adjust your booking if you have selected the incorrect training centre*.
Training Centre Two:
This is our new centre in Puerto Del Carmen more information about this centre can be found here. This centre is for all clients including those who are wheelchair users, limited in mobility and unable to climb stairs. The only acceptation to this is for those who are competitively registered swimmers swimming under International Swimming Registration (you will be placed in TC1 with adaptations to facilities made).
Training Centre One:
This training centre in Puerto Del Carmen will only be used for competitively registered swimmers swimming under International Swimming Registration. This is due to limitations of lane usage, staffing scheduling along with adjustments in facility usage.
If you have previously booked with Swim Lab International we will do all that we can to place your sessions with the same members of the team as you have worked with previously but this is not always possible*.

For those booking with Swim Lab International for the first time:
Firstly, welcome to the family. We look forward to working with you as many of you tried to secure bookings for 2020 but sadly had been too late to get a registration in before we sold out. Now is your chance to get your booking secured. Check out what its like for 6 days at Swim Lab here.
When visiting the website select the month, dates and training centre and that will allow you to add your week to the basket. You can add multiple weeks to a booking which allows you to create more than on week in a single purchase.
You will then be prompted to create a user account: This will be with an email address, creating a user name and password. All communication will be through this system going forward and monitoring progress and updates for your upcoming weeks as we approach the development weeks.
When you come to the payment options you will be presented with two choices: 1 direct payment. This is if you are self funding and paying for the course fees yourself. Once selected you will receive a confirmation email with details of how to make your payment.
Option 2: Payment through funding providers.
