Behind the Business
As a life-long swimmer that achieved national prominence, Jenny McCuiston realized the need for quality swim lessons focused solely on children in a family-friendly environment. She and her husband, Chris, traveled the country and thoroughly researched the learn-to-swim industry before starting a business that would grow to benefit communities nationwide.
At Goldfish Swim School, we recognize the need for quality, fun swim instruction in communities across the United States. We have spent years developing The Science of SwimPlay® to produce successful students, and this proven process translates to success for our franchisees.

Swimming is Essential
Swimming is an essential skill that all children should learn, both to keep them safe and for active enjoyment. Sadly, according to the CDC - drowning deaths are the leading cause of death for those aged 1–4. Goldfish Swim School is committed to changing this one child at a time. Through our in-school curriculum and exclusive W.A.T.E.R. Safety education, which we do for FREE in the community, you can help prevent these tragedies.
