British Swim School Makes A Splash In New Jersey Once Again
Water Safety and Survival School Debuts New Location in Toms River, N.J.
February 27, 2019 // Franchising.com // Toms River, NJ. - British Swim School, best known for its education of water safety as an essential survival skill amongst a fun and gentle environment, continues its nationwide expansion with a new pool location in Toms River, New Jersey. The addition has been open as of December 2018 and is being acknowledged through a grand opening celebration and ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Howard Johnson Hotel pool on March 2, 2019. The new location in Toms River marks the thirteenth New Jersey location for the British Swim School franchise.
The ribbon cutting ceremony will be held by the Mayor and the Chamber of Commerce President at 1 p.m. on March 2nd. Immediately following, the grand opening festivities will include activities such as a raffle for complimentary swim lessons, refreshments and more. The new Toms River location is the second British Swim School franchise for Paul Horner, with his first location having opened in November 2017 in Howell, NJ. Horner worked as the Corporate Vice President at Home Office New York Life Insurance Co. before joining the British Swim School franchise system.
“I previously started the Howell location in 2017 because I knew I wanted to do something worthwhile and make an impact in this community” said Paul Horner, British Swim School franchisee. “With limited swim programs on the East coast of New Jersey, I knew I had the opportunity to make an already preventable tragedy even more preventable. Thus, providing Toms River residents with a critical, life-saving skill that they will always remember.”
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 21 states within the U.S., and holds nearly 15,000 lessons per week nationally, and conducted nearly 600,000 swimming lessons in 2017.
The newly opened British Swim School in Toms River is located at 955 Hooper Avenue, Toms River, NJ 08753. For more information about British Swim School in Toms River, visit https://britishswimschool.com/southcentralnj/.
