There's a App for that -the Big Blue Swim School mobile app!

It’s a place where parents can manage their family’s schedule or make up a lesson their child may have missed. But it’s more than that, too. You can use the Big Blue app to monitor your child’s progress or to refer a friend for swimming lessons. It’s also a place where you can text our member services team to ask questions!

The Big Blue app, in other words, is a convenient point of connection between families and Big Blue. And for Big Blue parents, it’s a powerful way to manage your child’s swim school life, which makes it just one thing that sets Big Blue apart.

So let’s celebrate the Big Blue app today, on National App Day!

Hey Big Blue Families, we want to hear from YOU!

It’s August now – which means summer is winding down. But that doesn’t mean it’s time to pull your kids out of the pool just yet. Keeping your children enrolled in swim lessons year round will help them become strong, confident swimmers and equip them with skills that will be beneficial in and outside of the pool.

By spending time in the water more regularly, they’ll continue developing their swim skills as well as their confidence. Then next summer will be more fun (and even safer) because of it!

Big Blue Swim School offers flexible swim lessons all year long. We care about progress just as much as parents, which is why we encourage 85% attendance to ensure kids are getting continual exposure to the water and progressing in their swim lessons.

So as summer starts to wind down, consider ramping up your children’s swim experience. And why not let Big Blue help?
