Water survival and swim lessons for all ages
British Swim School of Lancaster is a locally owned franchise of British Swim School, which currently operates in over 100 pools in 15 states in the U.S. and internationally in Turkey. Because of local community relationships, British Swim School is becoming more widely available at neighborhood pools near you. In Lancaster, programs are offered at Schreiber Pediatric Rehab Center, Brethren Village and Greenfield Estates.
The organization holds more than 9,000 lessons per week nationally and conducted more than 475,000 swimming lessons in 2016. Classes are available for babies, children and adults.
The British Swim School was founded in 1981 by Rita Goldberg, a national swimmer and dedicated swim instructor in Britain. Goldberg’s methodology has evolved over the last 35 years and is used to teach water safety survival skills to children as young as three months old. These unique teaching methods have become a recognized trademark of the British Swim School. The back float is considered the most important water survival skill, as it enables swimmers to rest, breathe and call for help, alleviating the “silent” danger of floating face down. Drowning is the leading cause of death in children under five.
British Swim School is aligned with the Safer3 Water Safety Foundation, whose mission is to “protect every life from drowning through education and heightened water safety awareness”.

With all of the warm weather we've experienced over the past few weeks - it's started to make us thing about the summer pool season! Although, it's likely that winter will come back one more time (after all, it's still February) t's not too early to start swimming lessons before the warm weather is here to stay!
