Fish Factory Swim School

Comments

My three grandchildren love the Fish Factory. They've made wonderful progress in learning to swim and they love being in the water. During this very challenging time - when the Fish Factory has been forced to suspend lessons due to COVID-19 - please consider letting the school keep your April tuition. If they can't pay their rent or keep their fantastic staff, we can't expect them to be there when our children are ready to get back in the pool. Not everyone can make this choice, but I hope that those who are able do. It's a small price to pay to help ensure that Fish Factory remains a vital member of the Albuquerque community.
HI - is Fish Factory open for normal classes on Feb. 23, being that we got some significant snow?
Kim and Phil, Aiden Anita and Angela want to congratulate you and are so very happy for you! Both of you are loved by our family and you are awesome! Best of luck to both of you!
This is an Awesome business! Kamryn lost her goggles that had her "clips" on them, she was very sad. I called Fish Factory....to buy new "clips"....they don't make them anymore.

BUT.....they had a few left and offered to mail one to Kamryn! That is EXCELLENT customer service.....even though we are no longer a customer (due to geographical location only).

Friends.....Fish Factory.....get your little one(s) signed up or on the waitlist! It is a life skill and they are great!!! They are opening one next year (I believe) on the Westside...FYI.
Any updates on the Westside location?
Back to school means learning to swim, too. Feel free to share this shout out from New Mexico Living this morning: http://krqe.com/2017/08/16/around-town-back-to-school-with-yelp/

Welcome to another Water Safety Wednesday! As summer warms up and pools are opening, we must be mindful of the dangers of an open, unsupervised pool. According to the CDC, most childhood drowning deaths ages 1-4 occur at home swimming pools, and most of those occur when the child is not expected to be at or near the pool.
Ensuring that your pool is covered, gated on four sides, and locked can reduce the risk to your children by 83% compared to a pool that is only gated on three sides.

It's another Water Safety Wednesday here at the Fish Factory, and this week we are focusing on rule number two: Never ever swim alone!

One of the best things you can do for drowning prevention is to always swim with a buddy, with a lifeguard on duty, or have a parent or guardian in the water with you. Even confident and strong swimmers need to follow this water safety rule. An emergency can happen at any time, and it is important to be prepared! Having someone with you to respond to emergencies and get you or your swimmer the help that they need could make the difference.

Fish Factory Swim School New Reopening Procedure

Good Morning Swimmers and Families!!! We are scheduled to re-open on Monday, June 1st. If you are enrolled in our Phase I Private Lessons, please take the time to watch our new reopening procedure video. Normal classes are still frozen until further notice. We can't wait to see our little guppies in the pool again!

[05/16/20]   We are heartbroken to tell you that your kids cannot come back to swimming on Monday, May 18th. The City of Albuquerque Environmental Health Department called to tell us that Fish Factory Swim Schools cannot re-open per the directive of the governor’s office. If you signed up for our Phase I Private Lessons and have any questions, please email us. All normal classes are still frozen until further notice. Thank you for your continued support. We hope to see you in the pool soon!

[04/30/20]   More of our instructors wanted to say thank you for your ongoing support! We miss our Fish Factory families and hope to have an update on re-opening soon. Stay safe!

[04/29/20]   We miss our Fish Factory families and hope to have an update on re-opening soon. We are waiting to hear next steps from the governor. Thank you for your continued support!

[04/02/20]   Classes are suspended until further notice due to state regulations regarding COVID-19. Thank you for your continued support.

[03/13/20]   Fish Factory Families,

We have made the difficult decision to follow state and local actions and temporarily suspend all classes at both our Albuquerque and Rio Rancho locations through the end of APS/RRPS Spring Break (April 5th) due to COVID-19. This is a hard decision for any small, local business to make, because we realize that we could be putting ourselves out of business. However, we believe that social distancing is in all of our best interest.

We hope that we will be able to re-open on Monday, April 6th. By the time we re-open, we will have a plan for extra make-ups to account for the missed classes. Please know that our phones and emails will not be answered as we will be at home caring for our kids just like you.

Stay safe and healthy, and hopefully we’ll see you back in the pool soon.

[02/10/20]   Both locations will be OPEN
for Presidents' Day on
Monday, February 17th.
See you in the pool!

[01/17/20]   Both locations will be OPEN for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, January 20th. Thank you!
