Big Blue Swim School

Big Blue Swim School


Heads up, Big Blue families!

A friendly reminder that the pool will be closed for the holidays starting Saturday, December 24th, through Sunday, January 1st. We will reopen again for lessons on Monday, January 2nd.

We wish all of our Big Blue families a happy holiday season, and we look forward to even more BIG moments to celebrate in the new year!🎉
There's a App for that -the Big Blue Swim School mobile app!

It’s a place where parents can manage their family’s schedule or make up a lesson their child may have missed. But it’s more than that, too. You can use the Big Blue app to monitor your child’s progress or to refer a friend for swimming lessons. It’s also a place where you can text our member services team to ask questions!

The Big Blue app, in other words, is a convenient point of connection between families and Big Blue. And for Big Blue parents, it’s a powerful way to manage your child’s swim school life, which makes it just one thing that sets Big Blue apart.

So let’s celebrate the Big Blue app today, on National App Day!

Dear Big Blue families,

We wanted to send a friendly reminder that we will be closed this Thursday, November 24th and Friday, November 25th

We hope you all stay safe and enjoy your loved ones!💙
Hi Big Blue families!

Just a friendly reminder that we will be OPEN Monday, October 31st.

We hope you have a fun, enjoyable weekend! See you Monday!
It’s National School Picture Day, so it’s the perfect time for a proud parent moment.

Tag us your photos today and we’ll post them in our Instagram Stories.

Whether your kids are just starting to show confidence in the water, hitting their stride or only getting started, we want to see them in action. And so do all of our followers!

So go ahead and start sharing those swim school pics. Then watch us here to see them in action.

Hi Big Blue families!

Just a friendly reminder that we will be closed Monday, September 5th.

Enjoy the long weekend!☀️
Hey Big Blue Families, we want to hear from YOU!

We want to know what your favorite part about swim lessons at Big Blue!

We at Big Blue love that it allows kids to get out of the house, burn off some energy, and interact with other swimmers in a safe setting!

What is your favorite part?! Comment below! 👇🏼
It’s August now – which means summer is winding down. But that doesn’t mean it’s time to pull your kids out of the pool just yet. Keeping your children enrolled in swim lessons year round will help them become strong, confident swimmers and equip them with skills that will be beneficial in and outside of the pool.

By spending time in the water more regularly, they’ll continue developing their swim skills as well as their confidence. Then next summer will be more fun (and even safer) because of it!

Big Blue Swim School offers flexible swim lessons all year long. We care about progress just as much as parents, which is why we encourage 85% attendance to ensure kids are getting continual exposure to the water and progressing in their swim lessons.

So as summer starts to wind down, consider ramping up your children’s swim experience. And why not let Big Blue help?

Friends don’t let friends get into the water without knowing that they’re water safe. And that starts with a proper swimming foundation.

Big Blue Swim School sets kids up for a lifetime of safe water fun. So why not spread the word and help your friends build their kids’ water skills? We’ll help them become strong, confident swimmers – and give your children a new BBFF (Big Blue Friend Forever) to swim with!

Through our Refer a Friend program, you’ll also get BIG rewards if you spread the word on Big Blue. Earn a $50 swim lesson credit for every family you refer that signs up for a weekly swim lesson.

Just a friendly reminder that we will be closed this Monday, July 4th. We hope you all have a safe and fun weekend!
Just in time for Father’s Day, we want to applaud👏 all the Big Blue Swim School dads.

💙The fathers who cheer on every milestone their child makes in the water.

💙The dads who make their kids feel better about the new challenges ahead.

💙The fathers who aren’t afraid to get into the pool to help their children along.

💙And the dads who prioritize swimming as a life lesson worth learning – one that will give their kids confidence for the rest of their lives.

Let’s celebrate all of the Big Blue fathers today.
Wishing a Happy Father’s Day to you!

Eat better, swim better!🥦🥕🥗🥒

Do you know how important vegetables are to a balanced diet?

They can help give you the nutrients you need to stay healthy – both physically and mentally. Eating a balance of fruits and veggies is good for your heart, your gut and your brain.

And when it comes time to jump in the pool, the nutrients you get from a balanced diet that includes vegetables will also help give you the energy you need to swim faster and for longer. At Big Blue, we can see the difference in our students’ swim lessons.

Today is Eat Your Veggies Day. That makes it the perfect time to encourage your kids to eat their vegetables. Tell them their swimming success depends on it!

Happy National Best Friends Day ☺️💙

We love watching swimmers build connections during their lessons! ��This is one of the many benefits to our weekly swim lesson structure.

Swimmers are able to build relationships and trust with not only their instructor but their fellow swimmers, as well! After a few 30 minute lessons together you can find your swimmer working together with their fellow swimmers and even cheering each other on during lessons!

The sun ☀️ is out and swim season is getting underway! But don’t forget to put safety first when you and your kids get into the water this summer.

Formal swimming lessons are one of the best ways to keep your kids water safe. That’s why, for children from 3 months to 12 years old, safe summer swimming starts at Big Blue Swim School.

At Big Blue, our qualified Swim Associates empower kids to build confidence in the water and out. So visit a Big Blue near you and start your kids’ summer off right!

Hey Big Blue Families!

As a reminder, all Big Blue Swim Schools will be closed today in observance of Memorial Day.

But don’t let that stop you from spending time in the water today! If you have swim lessons starting tomorrow, we will see you soon!☺️

Just a friendly reminder that all Big Blue Swim School pools will be closed this coming Monday, May 30th, in celebration of Memorial Day!

We hope you all have a safe and fun weekend! 🇺🇸

We specialize in teaching children how to be safe, happy, confident swimmers. Book a lesson with us!
