OLYMPIC GOLD MEDALIST

A Family Owned Company Passionate About Swimming

Jon Foss was destined to change the way people learn how to swim. His mother lost her young brother to drowning and promised her children would learn to swim. Jon was enrolled into swimming lessons at an early age and advanced to compete at a national level and progressed to coaching. Here, he developed his unique approach to teaching world class techniques to children. In 1993, Foss Swim School began with just 12 students with Jon in the pool teaching. Today, our team of 350+ active instructors have trained with Jon and actively deliver what’s FOSSIBLE. We are the experts.
