British Swim School Is Coming to Denver!

Check out the newest location of parents' preferred learn-to-swim provider for more than 40 years

March 29, 2024

Swimming has many benefits, and Daniel Herman, owner of the new British Swim School of Downtown Denver, believes that everyone should have the opportunity to learn to swim. British Swim School’s safe, fun, and effective instructional program has made it the preferred choice for parents and students for over 40 years, so when Daniel had the opportunity to open his own British Swim School location, he dove right in.


With a background in project management at software technology companies, Daniel’s passion for swimming and drowning prevention led him to British Swim School, the premiere learn-to-swim provider for more than 40 years. What resonated deeply with him was the commitment to teaching water safety and survival skills to all, from children as young as three months old to adults.

Unfortunately, families don’t have a lot of options for swimming lessons in the Denver area. However, Daniel is on a mission to make swim lessons available to as many people as possible. Beginning in April, British Swim School of Downtown Denver will be offering swim lessons to local families with plans to expand into surrounding areas in the coming months.

British Swim School believes in creating a positive and secure learning environment, ensuring that our students not only acquire essential swimming skills but also develop a lifelong love for the water.

What sets British Swim School apart from other swim schools?

  • Lessons are available for children as young as 3 months old up to adults and are based on skill level. 
  • British Swim School puts an emphasis on building water survival techniques while creating a fun and playful environment. 
  • Most swim schools teach students to swim to the wall and get themselves out of the pool, but at British Swim School, our students learn what to do if they fall into any body of water that may or may not have a wall.
  • We use gentle teaching methods and a survival-first approach. 
  • Children start with learning how to roll over and float in order to stay safe in the water. Repetition in infants as young as 3 months old builds muscle memory and will allow them to save their own lives. 
  • Our instructors are second to none and bring fun and expertise to the water. They are energetic, experienced, and passionate about water safety education.
  • With British Swim School's unique teaching approach, every family member receives personalized attention and guidance.

Benefits of staying “swim-ready” year round

For years, industry experts have emphasized the importance of swimming year- round, not just in the summer months. Staying "swim-ready" throughout the year helps to strengthen muscle memory and survival swim basics and stroke techniques. This is especially critical for children, who typically take longer to remember skills they haven't practiced for a while.

Staying “swim-ready” year round:

  • Reduces the risk of drowning by 88%.
  • Teaches students to overcome any fear of the water, building confidence as they go.
  • Strengthens muscle memory of survival swim basics and stroke techniques, preparing students for major swim seasons.
  • Provides a balanced form of exercise during cooler months, building muscular, strength, cardiovascular health, endurance, flexibility, and coordination.
  • Teaches collaboration between instructor and student, developing trust and respect for adults.
  • Builds self-confidence for encountering unfamiliar environments, interactions, and activities.
  • Reduces anxiety, improves mental toughness, and releases endorphins into the body.
