Goldfish Swim School to Open in Stamford this Spring

The state-of-the-art facility will implement safety precautions to keep you and your family safe while learning how to swim.

Goldfish Swim School—an aquatic facility that offers year-round indoor swim classes and programs for kids four months to 12 years old—is opening in Stamford, CT later this Spring. The swim school will be dedicated to instilling water safety and confidence in kids through swim lessons for all levels, from introductory "parent-tot" programs to advanced, pro-level programs. 

The swim school prides itself on its effective curriculum and safe environment. They call it the "Golden Experience," with brightly colored walls, tiki cabanas, surfboard benches surrounding the pool, an island-style blow-dry bar, and "shiver-free" pool and air temperatures.
