The Swim Squad Franchise Information
The Swim Squad is a franchise for a business providing swimming lessons at home. It was founded in 2007 and started franchising in 2009.
It was founded by Jordan Meher. He first provided his services in Gainesville, Florida. While he was in college, he was teaching swimming on the side. The demand grew and was when he started forming The Swim Squad. The company is a team of college students and graduates that simply has the passion to teach kids how to swim. Every one of them has a certification in CPR and the Water Safety Instruction or WSI from the American Red Cross. If they don’t have this, they have experience teaching swimming in another swim school for at least two years. Even if they have different backgrounds, they all still go through the same training from The Swim Squad to make sure that they are able to provide the a quality instruction in swimming.
What services do they offer at The Swim Squad?
All lessons are held either at your home or at a community pool which makes it convenient for the parents and the child. They have different packages of swimming classes. The Group-er is eight lessons that last 30 minute each and designed for a group of three to five children in the same level. Marko and Polo are for a pair of two kids. The Lone Sharks is for one child. They also have the Single Salamander for one child in one lesson for 30 minutes. Infant Lessons are designed for infants aged six months and aimed to teach water safety knowledge and practices.
