Swim Schools of Corpus Christi
Connie Arthur from ASCUBA VENTURE in Corpus Christi, Texas was one of the last SwimSSI candidates in 2011. She came to Shreveport with a thorough background in competitive swimming.
“As you know, we are in the very beginning stages of getting our swim school up and running, but here is what we are doing to get things going.
We are going to be known as Swim Schools of Corpus Christi. We will have a separate phone line dedicated to just swimming! Our launch date is March 1, 2012. I have set up blocks of time in our pool, both for the morning and afternoons Monday – Friday. I am anxious to see when people are going to be available to make it in.
Some of the ways we are promoting our swim school will be use of a tri-fold brochure, posting our information at some local schools, and offering a Groupon deal for first time customers only. The offer will be for half off the first month of lessons. We probably will not run another swim lesson Groupon unless we need to do so in the winter months. We offer our dive Groupons more regularly, so our name will still be out there. Sid Stoval and I will be talking at his Corpus Christi Executive Association meeting in February to showcase our swim program to the local businesses. We will also be doing a store wide training/information session with our staff next month.
I am also very happy to have found a current staff member that is interested in teaching the Baby & Me classes, and I will be training her in the very near future. :-)
So, if there are any other shops that are in the very beginning stages of getting their swim school going, I would love any input/questions/advice. I would be happy to share with everyone how things go here in Corpus!
Thank you for all of your support and guidance during our new adventure!”
