VIRGINIA BEACH, VA / ACCESSWIRE / November 30, 2023 / British Swim School, the nation's leading "learn to swim" franchise, celebrated a fantastic year during its annual convention earlier this month in Cancun, Mexico.

The event, which was held at an all-inclusive resort, celebrated the accomplishments of franchise owners and highlighted the incredible growth the brand has seen in 2023. Top brand performers were honored with awards, and everyone got a chance to connect and unwind during an inspiring four-day event.

"This yearly reunion is a special occasion for our community to connect and celebrate the incredible journey we've had together," said Ashley Gundlach, British Swim School President. "The positive energy and shared experiences have made it an unforgettable experience. As we look back on a fantastic year for British Swim School, I want to express my gratitude to each franchisee who stood on stage, contributing to our collective success."

Angelica Monroy, this year's recipient of the prestigious 'Neptune Award,' stands as a shining example of excellence among the franchisees.
