Sure you can but more usual is: She's going to swim every day when we move to Florida. "will" could be a parent talking about a child. This should give you all might need.

Will is a modal verb. It is used with the base form of a verb. In spoken English and informal written English, the form won't is often used in negative statements.

  1. MODAL VERB You use will to indicate that you hope, think, or have evidence that something is going to happen or be the case in the future. I'm sure we will find a wide variety of choices available in school cafeterias. Will you ever feel at home here? The ship will not be ready for a month.
  2. MODAL VERB You use will in order to make statements about official arrangements in the future. The show will be open to the public at 2 pm; admission will be $5.
  3. MODAL VERB You use will in order to make promises and threats about what is going to happen or be the case in the future. I'll call you tonight. Price quotes on selected product categories will be sent on request.
  4. MODAL VERB You use will to indicate someone's intention to do something. I will say no more on these matters, important though they are. In this section we will describe common myths about cigarettes, alcohol, and marijuana. "Dinner's ready."—"Thanks, Carrie, but we'll have a drink first."
