Our Concept Makes Waves
SwimLabs is a truly unique swim school franchise opportunity because it is an innovative approach to swim schools. Instead of huge, multi-lane pools with crowded locker rooms and lots of overhead and upkeep, SwimLabs is compact, smart, strategic, and most importantly – proven. So whether you’ve been looking for a franchise that involves kids, fitness, health, education, coaching or just a pure love of swimming, you’ll find success in the Lab.
Here’s the Quick SwimLabs Story
We are a unique swimming training facility designed to use technology and individualized instruction to teach swimmers of all ages – beginners to competitive athletes – the absolute best mechanics for water safety and swimming success.
What Makes Us Different
- Our facilities have indoor pools that use a constant current and are kept between 85-90 degrees. (For learn to swim, warm pools mean happy young swimmers, happy parents and a happy staff.)
- Multiple in-pool cameras and pool-length mirrors are positioned strategically to capture a 360-degree view of the swimmer’s stroke. (Helping swimmers see their strokes is what a gives both of us a competitive edge.)
- Video-analysis software and large screen monitors provide instant feedback to swimmers on how they can adjust their stroke to be more efficient and faster in the water. (This is the same technology used by today’s Olympians.)
- Our unique video library of elite swimmers allows us to show our swimmers their strokes side-by-side with the best in the world. (This keeps customers coming back for more.)
- All instruction is done by expert, adult swimmers who are passionate about the sport, have been SwimLabs certified and have years of experience and training. (Translation: We earn respect from competitive swimmers, trust from parents.)
We’re swimming with savvy business sense.
We believe in keeping it smart. Keeping it simple. And making sure our franchisees never get in over their heads. Our business model blends lessons, aquatic training, and exercise plus the sale of swim merchandise all in a welcoming environment that is easy to maintain.
