To celebrate its grand opening, Goldfish Swim School is hosting a weekend-long pool party with open swim times on Friday night, Feb. 6 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and from 12 to 4 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 7 and 8. In addition to open swim times and tours of the facility, Goldfish will offer food, games and craft activities for the whole family, including a photo booth, door prizes and name the turtle contest.
Located at 11581 Geist Pavilion Dr., Suite 114, this kid-centered swim destination offers a wide variety of year-round swim lessons, a recreational swim team and fun family swim opportunities.
According to Andrew Joseph, General Manager of the Fishers location, Goldfish Swim School chose Fishers in part because it is a family-oriented community where a swim culture is already established.
Joseph went on to describe how Goldfish Swim School is unique. “What sets us apart is our facilities; they are awesome. Our pools are large and we keep the water at 90 degrees and that allows for ‘shiver free’ lessons. The deck is at 92 degrees and we have state-of-the-art water purifications systems plus we are well-ventilated so it doesn’t smell like chlorine inside,” said Joseph.
Goldfish Swim School concentrates on swim lessons for kids ages 4 months to 12 years. “Our main focus is water safety and we also foster a love of swimming,” Joseph explained. All employees at Goldfish Swim School are lifeguards and deck supervisors are on-hand during all lessons.
“Our monthly dues of $84 include one lesson per week for 30 minutes plus family swim time from noon to 1 p.m. every Monday through Thursday,” Joseph stated. Lessons never include more than four kids and extra lessons plus smaller class sizes are available for an additional cost.
Goldfish Swim School’s Recreational Swim Team is a great way for kids to learn what it’s like to be on a competitive team. The team is open to any child who has advanced through the swim school levels and who can perform the basic strokes. “They practice once a week for an hour and it’s conducted as a swim lesson but is also like a swim team practice. There is one intra-squad meet per quarter,” said Joseph.
Family Swim on Friday nights from 6:30 – 8 p.m. is a great way to experience the swim school and the cost is $5 per person with a $15 family maximum. “Everything is catered to kids at our facility,” reiterated Joseph. Find out more at http://goldfishswimschool.com/swimming-lessons/location/fishers.
