    Shannon and Andrew have lived in the area for over 15 years, and are passionate about family, kids, and their community. They saw the need for quality swim lessons in the area when their own kids were young.  They are thrilled to bring Goldfish Swim School, a state of the art, learn-to-swim facility, which can change – and even save – lives by teaching kids how to swim.
