British Swim School Expands to Serve More Texas Residents

The Nation’s Premier ‘Learn to Swim’ Provider adding location in Pearland/Manvel, Texas.

British Swim School, the nation’s leading “learn to swim” franchise, is proud to announce the opening of its newest location in Pearland-Manvel, Texas. The new franchise, owned by husband and wife duo Robb Hass and Greta Hass-Baccifava, teaches lessons at the 24-Hour Fitness Pearland Super Sport on 10011 Broadway Street in Pearland.   Robb has spent over 20 years in transportation and logistics, living and working in various parts of the world including Iraq, Afghanistan, Dubai, Budapest, Kuwait, Central Asia, and Africa. However, as his kids grew older, he decided to find a different kind of work closer to home. After speaking with about 20 British Swim School owners, Robb was impressed by the company's mission and values. “I really like what British Swim School is all about. The more kids we can help learn to swim, the better,” Robb said.
As a child, Robb was riding in a boat that tipped over, and he was forced to swim a long distance to shore. The life or death incident made an impact on him. Now, the Hass family lives in a neighborhood with many backyard pools. “Our son doesn’t know how to swim yet,” confessed Robb. “I worry about him because drowning happens so quickly and so silently.”  
For over 40 years, British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival skills by teaching infants, children, and adults of all ages the skills needed for water acclimation, water survival, and stroke development. Its mission — ensure that every person, regardless of age or ability, has the opportunity to become a safe and happy swimmer. Across the nation, eleven people die every day from unintentional drownings, with nearly 4,000 deaths occurring each year. Research shows that participation in formal swim programs, such as those offered by British Swim School, can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children who are most at risk for deaths caused by drowning. However, the risk of drowning isn’t limited to children: a Red Cross survey found that more than half of all Americans (54%) either can’t swim or don’t have the basic swimming skills needed to save themselves in the event of a water emergency.
Ashley Gundlach, President of British Swim School, expressed her support for the new franchise. “Robb and Greta’s dedication to bringing essential swimming skills to the Pearland-Manvel community is admirable. Their personal experiences and commitment to safety make them a perfect addition to our team.”
