Why Us?

Staying Several Strokes Ahead of the Competition

When our franchisees think of Goldfish Swim School Franchising, LLC, they think of more than just a swim school franchisor. We are a team of individuals passionate about changing lives and saving lives through a proven process our learn-to-swim facilities utilize. Through this time-tested curriculum and philosophy that we call The Science of SwimPlay®, we have discovered that children learn best through guided play and in a safe environment. This philosophy has helped us become the premier brand in this recession-resistant industry.

What Sets Us Apart

Combine these time-tested training and franchising processes with our fun, unique culture and dedicated franchisees, and you have a successful business that swims far ahead of the competition.

From site selection, to design and construction, to first-class training and support - that we provide in a family-friendly environment, it’s easy to see why we have grown to 100+ operating and thriving locations in just 12 years.

What Our Franchisees Are Saying
  • “Goldfish Swim School feels like a family! I have worked in corporate America prior to this role and it makes all the difference to feel like you are part of a family and that each and every day we have the opportunity to change a child's life in so many ways.” - Katie Lee
  • “Having both grown up around the water, we know how important water safety skills are and are so thrilled to be able to help instill life skills in the kids we teach. Goldfish was a phenomenal resource for us to bring to our community. We are so happy to have a place here for all families while building a business and life for our own.” - Manuel Alex
  • “I loved the idea of running and owning my own business in the community that I live in. It allowed for us to take a chance, forced us to work harder than we probably ever have and to build something in our community that is special – and that's just something that money can't buy.” - John Schwab
