British Swim School Makes A Huge Splash In Boston
Water Safety and Survival School Debuts First-Ever Location in Natick
November 26, 2019 // Franchising.com // Natick, MA - 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 opening in Natick, MA. The opening is being acknowledged through a grand opening celebration on Saturday, December 7th from 1pm-3pm at LA Fitness in Natick.
Grand opening festivities will include family-friendly activities such as giveaways and contests, swim demonstrations, trial lessons, as well as participate in the collection for a month-long toy drive for Toys for Tots! Residents who attend the event will receive 50% off the first two months of lessons. Multi-pool franchisee, Simon Thavaseelan, has been a member of the British Swim School franchise into his second year, with his first pool in Stoneham in 2015, followed by his second pool in Bedford in 2018, and finally rounding out the trio with his recent opening in Natick. Thavaseelan is thrilled to grow this must-have resource in the Boston community.
“I’m so happy to be opening our third British Swim School pool location to the Boston area and the specifically to Natick and the Metrowest area,” said Simon Thavaseelan, British Swim School franchisee. “Teaching children water safety and survival skills has quickly become a passion of mine that I hope to spread throughout Boston with even more pool openings in the future.“
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 19,000 lessons per week nationally, and conducted nearly 750,000 swimming lessons in 2018.
