British Swim School Opens Two New Locations in Belleville on September 12

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 two new franchise locations in Belleville at the Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Belleville (784 Belle Boulevard West) and the Ramada by Wyndham Belleville (11 Bay Bridge Road). Franchise owners Jay Asher and Ali Samimi are excited to open their inaugural British Swim School locations in the area. Their mission is to spread awareness about the importance of swim safety and offer a safe and convenient location for residents to learn how to swim, especially with families and children seeking after school programs as school is back in session.
“Jay and I are very excited to be opening two British Swim School locations for Belleville residents,” said Ali Samimi, co-owner of British Swim School of Northeast Lake Ontario. “Our journey as longtime friends to business partners have been marked by shared ambitions and a passion for aquatic education. The opportunity to bring two franchise locations to Belleville while creating a positive impact to our community’s water safety is incredibly fulfilling.” “Embarking on this venture alongside Ali is a testament to our dream as business owners,” says Jay Asher, co-owner of British Swim School of Northeast Lake Ontario. “This endeavour allows us to blend our personal connection with a vital community service, as we empower families and children of all ages with essential swimming skills and water safety awareness. British Swim School’s mission-oriented franchise model aligns with our values, and we are excited to provide an indispensable service to Belleville residents.”
The two new pool locations are conveniently located in the Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton Belleville and the Ramada by Wyndham Belleville. Their teams are eager and ready to impart life-saving swimming skills to children (and adults!) in a fun and safe environment taught by trained swimming instructors – something owners Jay and Ali are passionate about. Jay has always found himself around the pool with his daughter being a competitive swimmer, while Ali wanted to dedicate his time to a business that gives back to children and families in their community. Jay has been in the insurance industry for over 23 years and Ali has a longstanding background in IT, working as a computer programmer and data engineer for over 15 years. The duo decided to embark on the joint venture after seeking a fulfilling business opportunity bringing them to British Swim School.
"We are excited to welcome Jay and Ali to the British Swim School family as they begin the journey of launching their very first franchise locations in Belleville," said Ashley Gundlach, President of British Swim School. "Their dedication to ensuring swim safety harmonizes perfectly with our corporate values. They fully embrace our mission-driven philosophy, aimed at imparting water survival skills to children and adults and preventing accidental drownings. We are delighted about Jay and Ali opening their first two pool locations and wish them great success in Belleville.”

British Swim School offers a three-part curriculum teaching children, as young as three months and adults of all ages water acclimation, safety and survival skills, and swim stroke development. While parental supervision remains the foremost 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.
