Why Us

An Incredible Swimming Lesson Franchise!

Hudson Valley Swim® was founded in 2003 by our current owners in collaboration with one of the area's most experienced swim lesson instructors. Over time, our swim lesson program was fine-tuned to further meet the needs of students and includes best practices from the U.S. Swim School Association, the American Red Cross, USA Swimming, and our own extensive experience. Since our founding, we have helped nearly a hundred thousand children, teens, and adults become proficient swimmers. In January 2022, we officially launched the Hudson Valley Swim® swimming lesson franchise opportunity.

Some of the key differences between Hudson Valley Swim® and other swim lesson franchises include:

We have the lowest initial franchise investment in the swim lesson franchise industry. Our total investment ranges from $79,490 to $119,500, including the one-time $39,500 Franchise Fee.

We do not require you to build a pool to conduct swim lessons, which greatly reduces your capital expenditures, time-to-market, and operational costs. Instead, our Franchise Owners “partner” with swimming pools in their area to conduct swim lessons. Potential venues include fitness clubs and centers, hotels, schools, and sports clubs. We also have a national contract with Fitness International, Inc. to conduct Hudson Valley Swim® classes at their locations, so if you reside in an area that has an available LA Fitness or Esporta that operates a pool, we will assist you in obtaining access to it.

We will NOT grant you a Hudson Valley Swim® swim lesson franchise until a suitable location has been identified!

We do not require you to have any previous aquatics or swim lesson experience to own and operate a Hudson Valley Swim® swimming lesson franchise. We provide guidance and assistance with the recruiting and interviewing process to help you identify suitable instructors.

We offer a successful, replicable swim lesson franchise model that can be highly profitable.

We advise you regarding local marketing programs that you will conduct in your area to attract students to your Hudson Valley Swim® swimming lesson franchise business.
