Goldfish Swim School

The Sylvania Township Board of Zoning Appeals has approved a conditional use permit for a Goldfish Swim School to establish a swimming lesson program for children as young as four months at the site of the former Family Video store at Holland-Sylvania and Brint roads.

Tim Gilbride, one of the owners, told the board interior construction could begin soon with programs starting in about four months.

He said lessons for children as young as 4 months are for acclimation to the water, with a parent holding the child through different exercises. He noted that classes are available for youngsters up to 12 years old.

Included in the swimming lessons are important points about being cautious around the water, he added. 

The company, with about 90 swim schools open or in development, intends to lease the undeveloped property just south of the site to provide additional parking.
