British Swim School (US) Continues its International Expansion

21 Jun 2019 - British Swim School, best known for its education in water safety as an essential survival skill, in a fun and gentle environment, continues its international expansion with a new location in Brampton, Ontario!The brand-new location is being celebrated through a grand opening event at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel on Saturday July 6th from 1pm-4pm. To help celebrate the occasion, there will be a representative from Brampton City Hall, who will assist in the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Grand opening festivities will include family-friendly activities such as face painting, balloon animals, prizes for the children and giveaways. Residents who attend the event will receive a 25% discount on the first three months of lessons. First time franchisees, Ann-Marie Rowe & Cameron Mitchell, plan to begin lessons on July 8th, following the grand opening celebration. Ann-Marie & Cameron held positions in Information Technology for many years before deciding to join the British Swim School franchise system in November 2017.

“I realized there was a great need for water safety survival schools like British Swim School in Brampton” said British Swim School franchisee, Ann-Marie Rowe. “I’m very excited and eager to bring this resource to the Brampton community. It’s so easy to learn how to swim because every day is enrollment day at British Swim School!”

British Swim School offers a two-step curriculum teaching children and adults of all ages, 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 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 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.

The newly opened British Swim School Brampton is located inside the Courtyard Marriott Hotel at 90 Biscayne Crescent, Brampton, ON L6W 4S1 with a second location coming soon.
