By: British Swim School
The grand opening festivities will include family-friendly activities such as in-water lessons, water balloon hot potato, sponge toss, face painting, refreshments and raffles! Franchisee Lisa Godek, could not be happier about her decision to join the British Swim School franchise system.
"Manhattan is known for a lot of things, but it's rare to find a pool and program like British Swim School in the middle of the concrete," said Lisa Godek, British Swim School franchisee. "I'm extremely proud and honored to be the first British Swim School franchisee in Manhattan and hope to spread water safety survival skills to children and families throughout the city."
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 750,000 swimming lessons in 2018.
The newly opened British Swim School in Manhattan is located at the Skyline Hotel at 725 Tenth Avenue, between 49th and 50th streets. For more information, please visit https://britishswimschool.com/
