WILLIAMSVILLE, NY—  Amherst Chamber of Commerce President/CEO A.J. Baynes and Goldfish Swim School, the country’s leading water safety and swim lesson school offering infant and child swim lessons, are pleased to announce the ribbon cutting and grand opening of a new 9,000 square foot Goldfish Swim School in Williamsville. The newest addition to the Goldfish Swim School family joins dozens of other successful Goldfish locations throughout the United States.

Goldfish Swim School Williamsville provides swim instruction to children ages 4 months to 12 years-old in a family-friendly setting with highly trained instructors, small class sizes (max 4:1 student to teacher ratio), shiver-free 90-degree pools, and a state-of-the-art water purification system. Families with kids of different ages and skill levels can conveniently have all their swimmers in the pool during the same half hour time slot and schedule makeup classes when necessary. Goldfish offers perpetual lessons and families can enroll at any time.

“Swim lessons help children develop critical water safety skills and are a fun way to keep them active,” says Baynes. “We are proud to have this high-caliber school in our community providing this vital service.”

In addition to swim lessons, Goldfish Swim School offers weekly family swims (for both members and non-members) and party packages. Facility highlights include an air-conditioned viewing gallery for parents to watch lessons, a spacious family dressing area with private changing rooms, snack bar, retail shop and warm, tropical décor.

Located at 7950 Transit Road, Goldfish Swim School will offer a wide range of swimming classes for all ages and skill levels at times that are convenient for every family’s schedule.
