Soon-to-Open Goldfish Swim School Launches ‘Safer Swimmer Pledge’ to Bring Greater Awareness to Water Safety
The leading premier learn-to-swim franchise, Goldfish Swim School, will open its newest South Carolina location May 18. Goldfish Swim School – Greenville, located at 607 Haywood Rd., Greenville, SC 29607, will provide swim lessons and water safety instruction to infants and children ages four months to 12 years.
In honor of National Water Safety Month, Goldfish Swim School has launched a ‘Safer Swimmer Pledge’ campaign to bring greater awareness to water safety and drowning prevention. Throughout the month of May, families are encouraged to take the pledge and promote the importance of parent-child conversations around water safety. Those who take the pledge will be entered to win one year of free swim lessons at Goldfish Swim School. Additionally, for each pledge, Goldfish Swim School will donate $1 to the USA Swimming Foundation, the philanthropic arm of USA Swimming, which supports swim lesson providers with resources, materials and grant funding to allow the opportunity for every child across the country to learn to swim.
“This campaign gets us one step closer to achieving our goal of reducing the number of accidental childhood drownings,” said Tiffany Keyser, owner of Goldfish Swim School – Greenville. “We’re thrilled to open our doors this month and welcome all families to our new swim school. We look forward to seeing all the signed safer swimmer pledges that come through as we join forces to support the cause of water safety awareness.”
Sadly, childhood drownings have been on the rise as the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a formal warning of an increased threat in drownings due to implications brought on by the pandemic. Goldfish Swim School – Greenville is committed to making a positive impact to help prevent such drownings by bringing greater awareness to water safety heading into the summer months (May-August), which according to Total Aquatics Programming data, account for two-thirds of annual childhood drowning incidents. Due to restrictions brought on by the pandemic, many children have been out of swim lessons for some time, making it critical to brush up on water safety tips before their first experience back in the water.
By visiting the Safer Swimmer Pledge landing page, families can sign to join the cause in promoting and prioritizing water safety, while also accessing at-home water safety tools and activities and reviewing “water safety whys” – families first-hand experiences and testimonials on how water safety has made an impact in their lives. Once families have taken the pledge, they will also receive a promo code for 25% off any Speedo USA purchase with 10% of that purchase also donated to the USA Swimming Foundation. Championing this cause as a vocal advocate for water safety is brand ambassador and World Champion Swimmer Ryan Murphy, who is supporting the initiative while in the throes of training for the postponed 2020 Games.
Throughout the campaign, Goldfish Swim School will be announcing various pledge prizes on social media along with the grand prize winner of a year of free swim lessons on June 4. The winning family will be contacted directly to begin the onboarding process and gear up for lessons just in time for the summer season ahead.
Committed to operating Safer. Stronger.
