Build Skills for a Lifetime of Confidence – and Fun!

It’s no secret that at FOSS, we love water. We were founded on the premise that anyone can learn to swim well, unlocking opportunities for a lifetime. Since 1993, we’ve been helping kids and adults swim more safely and achieve their dreams—like going deep sea fishing, swimming in a triathlon (or 18!), even simply enjoying a family vacation without fear of drowning. 

Beyond sharing in our love of the water, we pride ourselves on simply having a great time at work. We love seeing our swimmers’ smiling faces when they show up for class. Our employees bond and form lifelong friendships—some even swim with us as kids and return 20 years later to become a swim instructor! We offer flexible schedules, free lessons, generous retirement contributions, and opportunities to advance your career.

Find an Opportunity

We’re always on the lookout for the next member of our FOSS family. Whether you’re interested in being a swim instructor, working the desk and greeting families with your bubbly personality, or even someday managing an entire location—we have career opportunities for you!
