British Swim School Prepares To Make Bigger Splash In Orlando
Water Safety and Survival School Welcomes New Florida Location
February 05, 2018 // Franchising.com // Orlando, Fla. - British Swim School, best known for its education of water safety as an essential survival skill amongst a fun and gentle environment, continues its expansion with a new pool location in the city of Orlando. The addition is being celebrated through a grand opening on Saturday, February 3 and will feature a giveaway sweepstakes in which one month of free lessons and British Swim School swag will be awarded.
This location marks the third British Swim School location in the Orlando region, and will be run by franchisee Isabel Arango. This new location will partner with The Foundation for Foster Children, to provide complementary swim lessons to the children in the program, aiming to enhance the lives of those within the foster care system. These lessons can be requested by authorized caregivers, case managers, or the youth themselves via online nomination.
“As we open our third location in less than a year, we're thrilled to see the Orlando community's support for our pursuits,” said Isabel Arango, British Swim School franchisee. “Having a young daughter myself, I understand the need for and importance of water safety and swim lessons, as it is an essential survival skill. But it's incredibly uplifting to see the rest of the community also share these ideals and heavily reinforce the British Swim School mission.”
British Swim School offers a two-step curriculum teaching children and adults of all ages, some as young as three months, water safety and survival skills, along with swimming skill development. While parental supervision is always the number one safety measure, research shows that participation in formal swim programs, such as those offered by British Swim School, can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent among children who are most at risk for deaths caused by drowning.
The British Swim School franchise concept operates a unique water safety program with teaching methods that serve as a trademark for the brand. The company offers lessons out of multiple national fitness chains and hotel pools year-round, based on the premise that children progress at different rates. Each child, regardless of age, is placed in their correct skill level and will have certain achievable objectives. British Swim School operates in nearly 200 schools in 20 states within the U.S., and holds nearly 12,000 lessons per week nationally, and conducted nearly 600,000 swimming lessons in 2017.
The newly opened British Swim School Orlando is located within the Embassy Suites, at 8978 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819.
