In my family, swimming is very important. My husband grew up swimming on the swim team and was a life guard. We totally understand water safety and the need to learn how to swim. That’s why I was so excited to check out the Big Blue Swim School!
Did you know that the Big Blue Swim School does not charge a registration fee for swim lessons? How great is that? I know most of the places around here do.
Their changing rooms are amazing. They have microbe resistant carpet so that you don’t have to worry about a slippery wet floor under you. There is plenty of room in the changing room too. No more squishing into a small room with your kids where nobody can move.
They have cubbies to put your things too!
The play area is pretty sweet too!
Big Blue Swim School is the only swim-lesson provider that exclusively hires and trains full-time teachers. They also earn benefits. Something you will notice with other swim schools in my experience is that they have high turnover and you often times don’t get the same instructor. You don’t see that at Big Blue Swim School.
Now, let me talk about the lessons. They have an amazing system. You get to choose a lesson time that works so all your kids can have lessons at the same time. Let me repeat that — lessons at the same time. This means families don’t have to make multiple trips to the pool just because siblings were unable to find a time where they could both swim. You also can log into your account from any device and track your child’s progress, move their lesson times, schedule FREE make-up lessons, add additional lessons, and update personal information in just a few easy clicks.
Let’s discuss the water conditions. I know a local park district who keeps the water freezing (they share the pool with the high school is why). Now, I never signed up my kids there for that reason. You won’t find that at Big Blue. Instead, they keep their water at 90 degrees. They also have a saline system and ultra-violet filtration. This provide a state-of-the-art defense against waterborne illnesses and harsh chemicals. No red eyes or dry itchy skin from being in the pool!
It pays to sign up now! Big Blue is offering six swim lessons for $60 when you sign up for weekly lessons – a discount of more than 50% on standard prices.
I was impressed by their facilities, their staff, and how they run their business. If you have a Big Blue Swim School in your area, I highly recommend you take a free trial lesson to see how you like it too!
