British Swim School Awards New Territories in Norfolk and Virginia Beach

Released: Wednesday, June 17, 2020

British Swim School Awards New Territories in Norfolk and Virginia Beach  - Their 75th Franchisee Will Serve Thousands of Children Throughout Southeastern Virginia 

(Virginia Beach, Virginia) – British Swim School, a national franchise and premier learn to swim provider headquartered in Virginia Beach, Virginia, awarded two new territories in Virginia last month. The franchised businesses will be located in Virginia Beach and the Norfolk/Chesapeake areas, respectively. 

“We’re thrilled to have a new franchise awarded right in our backyard,” British Swim School President Brian Garrison said. “Virginia Beach has been a terrific home for our corporate office, and we couldn’t be happier to have a franchise launched in a community that revolves so much around the water.” 

British Swim School of Greater Virginia Beach was  awarded to Chuck Cassidy, a 50-year native of Virginia Beach. A program director overseeing hospitality, missions and congregational care at Virginia Beach United Methodist Church, Chuck learned about the opportunity from a friend working at British Swim School’s home office and fell in love with the company’s mission. 

“I love the fact that British Swim School had a very solid core mission: saving lives,” he said. 

“Water safety and survival skills are crucial for everyone to have, and I’m excited to teach those skills in my hometown and beyond.”

Cassidy is hoping to open his new British Swim School by January 2021.
