British Swim School
Headquartered in Fort Lauderdale, British Swim School (BSS) is a franchise organization that currently operates in more than 80 pools in 14 states in the U.S. and internationally in Turkey. Because of relationships with organizations such as LA Fitness and 24 Hour Fitness, British Swim School is becoming more widely available and there are tremendous franchise opportunities across the U.S.
Rita Goldberg founded British Swim School in 1981 and remains the CEO. Goldberg’s methodology has evolved over the last 34 years, teaching water safety survival skills to children as young as three months old. The back float is considered the most important water survival skill, as it enables swimmers to rest, breathe and call for help, alleviating the “silent” danger of floating face down. Drowning is the leading cause of death in children under five.
The organization holds more than 7,500 lessons per week and conducted more than 300,000 swimming lessons in 2014. Classes are available for babies, children and adults.
We conduct lessons at the following places: Friendship Village of Schaumburg, LA Fitness Hanover Park, and the Residence Inn at 1610 McConnor Pkwy, Schaumburg.
