Safety Standards: The safety of our swimmers, parents and team
members is of the utmost importance. Our pools are disinfected by a
Nexgen chlorination system and additionally filtrated through a UV
system to provide the safest swimming environment. Our
state-of-the-art ventilation system allows fresh air to
continuously circulate into our building, further minimizing the
spread of any airborne virus. Industry experts note that indoor
pools are far superior at minimizing virus transmission than most
indoor spaces. Each Goldfish Swim School is an independently owned
and operated franchise. The respective Franchisee is the employer
at each Goldfish Swim School location. Each franchisee can set
their own wages, benefit programs and terms and conditions of
employment, which may vary at each Goldfish Swim School
