10 Reasons to Visit Goldfish Swim School | Libertyville Area Moms

I wanted to share my top ten reasons we love Goldfish Swim School. Most importantly, we love it because they let each child go at their own pace and really get to know them to find out what motivates them and makes them feel comfortable! They get creative and think outside the box to encourage the kids to reach their goals. We’ve seen big improvements in my son’s confidence and skills. He’s become more adventurous and gotten over his fear of going underwater! These are huge accomplishments for reluctant swimmers and I attribute it to the patience, flexibility and fun instructors at Goldfish Swim School. I’m so proud of my son and love the environment at Goldfish. I hope you enjoy our top ten!

It’s no easy feat to get a child ready for swim, shower afterwards and dressed again – especially in the winter time… but Goldfish sure does make it convenient. 😉

These are great ways to test drive Goldfish Swim School. And if you’re already a member, it is a great way for them to show off their skills, help them practice and have some bonding time!

5. Turtles, Fish and a Play Area:
Anything to help keep the kids entertained while they watch their siblings is always welcome! Who doesn’t love when places make the waiting game easier?! All of the kids love the aquarium and it adds to the vacation ambiance.

7. Jump Start Clinics & Technique Clinics:
Jump Start Clinics– Designed for families to get their kids water-ready in a hurry! They include four or five consecutive lessons and are a great way to take advantage of time off of school.

Technique Clinics– A great way to give swimmers the opportunity to focus on the four major swim strokes- freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke & butterfly.

8. Convenient Treasure Island Store, Snack Shack Bar, Coloring Sheets, Tattoos and Ribbons:

9. It’s Cool to Party at the Pool!
Goldfish offers a unique experience for every child from ages four months to pre-teen! They can benefit cognitively and socially in a party environment that’s safe, fun & interactive. Celebrate with a birthday party or “summer kick-off” party in a warm pool decorated just for your special day. Goldfish will take care of all of the details, set-up and clean-up!

Parties include: invitations & matching envelopes, 2 hours of private access to the facility, certified lifeguards on duty to oversee all pool activities, cupcakes & beverages for children, centerpieces, balloons & tropical decorations, cutlery, napkins and table coverings

10.  They provide benefits to Staying in the Pool Year-round: 

  • Beyond learning a lifelong skill that provides kids with exercise, there are a number of developmental benefits that come with consistent, year-round swim instruction.

  • Swimming is a year round, perpetual activity. Just because summer is ending, doesn’t mean your swim skills should slide!

  • Swimming not only improves physical ability, but the Goldfish curriculum of the Science of SwimPlay(R) incorporates a play based approach that includes cognitive skill building.

  • Swim lessons help develop important fine and gross motor skills and provide a whole body form of exercise to improve overall coordination.

  • Swimming is good for brain health! The bilateral cross-patterning movement of swimming helps cognition, ease of learning and overall academic performance.

  • “Swimming isn’t seasonal!” It’s good to keep up on water safety all year long
