Local Collegiate Swimmer Makes a Splash By Opening British Swim School


Kelci Wood to Brings Renowned Water Safety and Swim Program to Her Hometown of Bloomington

BLOOMINGTON, Ind., March 1, 2024 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- British Swim School, the nation's leading "learn to swim" franchise company, continues its rapid expansion across North America with the opening of its newest franchise location in Bloomington. Kelci Wood, one of the youngest franchisees in the brand's history, is leading the new location that's set to open on March 4, 2024.

"We're not just teaching swimming; we're equipping individuals with vital survival skills. This is about making a tangible difference in people's lives."

A native of Bloomington, Wood's journey with swimming began at a young age, eventually beginning competitive swimming at 10 years old. Her passion took her to Goucher College in Baltimore, where she continued to compete. While in college, she spent three years as a swim instructor at another British Swim School location.

"Returning to Bloomington to open this franchise is a dream come true," Wood said. "It's an opportunity to share my passion for swimming and British Swim School's mission of water safety. I want to offer something unique to Bloomington ? a program that emphasizes water safety as the foundation of learning to swim."

For more than 40 years, British Swim School has been dedicated to teaching water survival skills by teaching infants, children, and adults of all ages the skills needed for water acclimation, water survival, and stroke development. Its mission ? ensure that every person, regardless of age or ability, has the opportunity to become a safe and happy swimmer.

Across the nation, eleven people die every day from unintentional drownings, with nearly 4,000 deaths occurring each year. Research shows that participation in formal swim programs, such as those offered by British Swim School, can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children who are most at risk for deaths caused by drowning. However, the risk of drowning isn't limited to children: a Red Cross survey found that more than half of all Americans (54%) either can't swim or don't have the basic swimming skills needed to save themselves in the event of a water emergency.

"The alarming statistics around water safety underline the importance of our mission," said Wood. "We're not just teaching swimming; we're equipping individuals with vital survival skills. This is about making a tangible difference in people's lives."

The first pool from British Swim School of Bloomington is located at Home2 Suites by Hilton Bloomington (1410 N Walnut St). Lessons will run Monday and Thursday 3pm-7pm and Saturday 9am-1pm.

"We're thrilled to welcome Kelci Wood to our British Swim School family," said Ashley Gundlach, British Swim School President. "Her passion for swimming, experience in our program, and commitment to water safety will allow her to make a significant impact in Bloomington. We look forward to supporting her as she brings our life-saving skills to her community."
