Welcome to Big Blue Swim School

Our goal is to encourage transformation in kids – to go from development of swim skills (stroke, breath, movement) to the development of life skills (courage, perseverance, hard work).

We have created a fun and safe environment for swimmers in a relaxed and comfortable setting for parents. When our clients walk through our doors, they’re greeted by remarkable staff in a unique facility designed to provide the best swim lesson experience possible.

All Hands on Deck

Teamwork is the cornerstone of Big Blue. There is a coordinated effort between teachers, managers and parents to work together to focus on each kid’s progress. The Big Blue team offers a truly unique relationship of teachers and managers working in unison and executing our guiding principles every day.

The Big Blue Difference

  • Full-Time Teachers - We exclusively hire full-time teachers to give children the experience and consistency they need.
  • Time-Saving Flexibility - We offer the ability to schedule all children within a family simultaneously, no matter what age or level.
  • Stress Free Facilities - We offer ultra-clean, 90-degree water for the children while parents relax in a carpeted viewing lobby.

Why The Swim Lesson Industry?

With no dominant players in the swim lesson space, and recent decreases in state and local spending, the market demand for quality swim schools focused on basic skills is high.

This is a recession-resistant and fragmented industry with with a very strong EBIDTA of 35%.

Why Big Blue?

  • Sustainable industry: All parents want their kids to learn to swim for safety and family memories
  • 100% Absentee Model: Big Blue’s Executive Model allows you to hire someone to manage at a very competitive salary (we will assist with hiring and training)
  • Proven business model with strong unit economics
  • Reoccurring Revenue Model: Parents average 2-3 lessons per week
  • Hundreds of A-quality retail locations coming available because of the “Amazon Disruption”
