British Swim School Opens its First Location in Calgary

Calgarians can make learning to swim a part of their new year’s resolution

North America’s Premier ‘Learn to Swim’ Provider Continues Canadian Expansion

British Swim School, the North American leader of “learn to swim” franchise programs, is pleased to announce the opening of its first franchise location in Calgary at the Hilton Garden Inn at 2335 Pegasus Road NE. Franchise owners Divine Ebesoh and Erica Martin are excited to join the British Swim School family to spread awareness about the importance of swim safety and offer another safe and convenient location for Calgarians to learn how to swim now that the Red Cross has ended its swimming program in Canada. British Swim School continues to expand its footprint in Canada, with swim lessons currently being offered in four locations in Alberta bringing the total to five with this new opening.
“Becoming a British Swim School franchisee is a great opportunity for my wife and I to help Calgarians build confidence in the water,” said Divine Ebesoh, owner of British Swim School of Calgary. “We saw the void in the market for available swim programs and are excited to give back to our community by offering the gift of a convenient location where Calgary children and adults can learn how to swim.”
The franchise location is conveniently located at The Hilton Garden Inn and teaches life-saving swimming skills to children (and adults!) in a fun and safe environment taught by trained swimming instructors – something owners Divine and Erica are passionate about.
"Divine and Erica are wonderful additions to the British Swim School family and tremendous advocates of the importance of teaching children how to swim from a young age,” said Ashley Gundlach, British Swim School President. “The opening of our first location is Calgary is here to give the community a new kind of swim lesson and water survival skills experience. Families can be rest assured that their children are receiving the most dependable and reputable swim lessons and water survival skills in a safe environment.”
British Swim School offers a three-part curriculum teaching children and adults of all ages - some as young as three months - water acclimation, safety and survival skills, and swim stroke development. While parental supervision is always the number one safety measure, research shows that participating 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.
