Temporary Membership Hold

Dear Families, 

Thank you for your kindness during this unprecedented event. We are continually monitoring directives from Governor Phil Murphy and Essex County and will make decisions accordingly.  And sadly, while we had hoped to start lessons again on March 30, we must continue to do our part to help slow the spread of COVID-19 by abiding by and supporting our local health authorities and protected our community.  So, as much as we want to see all of you, at this time, our reopen date is unknown. 

Additionally, the last thing we want you to worry about during this time is your Goldfish Swim School Membership.  Effective for April 1st, and until we reopen, we WILL NOT be charging your account and will save your swim lesson spot your family is enrolled in.

At Goldfish Swim School, one of our core values is to do the right thing, make the right decisions, and treat people with integrity, compassion, and trust.  And it's clear to us that our members also hold this value near and dear to their hearts.  The compassion that you have shown us in our decision to close has been amazing, and we are so grateful to you for your continued support and trust in us.  We cannot wait to jump back in the pool with your kids, and plan to open our doors as soon as it is safe to do so.

Please know that we are all in this together.  Be safe and be healthy.  We miss you all and cannot wait to see you back in the pool!

Larisa and Jeffrey Posner

Start a Ripple and Create a Wave!

While now may not seem like a time for celebration, perhaps it's during times like these we need a reason to celebrate the most.

At Goldfish, celebrating has always been a core part of who we are. And, despite these difficult times we're all facing together, we're choosing to celebrate life's simple joys. 

Spending more time with family. Receiving a phone call from a friend. Enjoying a homemade meal.

We hope you find your own reasons to celebrate and spread something positive to those around you.  ~All it takes is one ripple to make a big wave.~

Ways to Practice Swim Skills at Home

Your little swimmer can practice swim skills at home! Don’t have a pool? No problem! Some of the key fundamental parts of swimming can still be practiced. For a golden experience, make a fun non-pool swim practice time and you can both be silly while learning! Click on the link for three easy ways you can help your little swimmer practice at home. https://www.goldfishswimschool.com/blog/2015/may/ways-to-practice-swim-skills-at-home/
Also, as we know how important it is to maintain your child’s progress in the pool and help keep them safer in and around the water, we will be rolling out Goldfish on the Go -- fun, virtual dry-land swim lessons that can keep your swimmers practicing until they can get back in the pool!
