Announcing the #GOFORTHEGOLD Instagram Contest!

Goldfish Swim School is happy to announce our #goforthegold Instagram contest! The 2016 Rio Olympics kick off on August 5th, and we’re getting into spirit here at Goldfish Swim School. Just like top-performing Olympians are awarded medals, our swimmers are given ribbons when they reach a milestone in the pool. With that in mind, we want to see pictures of your little ones confidently holding up their ribbon, celebrating a job well done! Read on to find out how to enter the contest and to see a list of our fin-tastic prizes!
