NEXT DOOR TO PET SUPPLIES PLUS, FOSS SWIM COMPLETING NEW POOLS
A FAMILY TRAGEDY LED TO FOSS, as owner Jon FOSS’s mother’s brother drowned when he was 9 and she was 17 at the time. So Jon was taught fearlessly to swim and keep always improving, building confidence etc.
FOSS SWIM SCHOOL started over 30 years ago initially with 7 locations in Minneapolis. Today they are with schools in Minnesota, Illinois, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Missouri with over 30 schools. Located in Apple Valley in half the building that was formerly Staples, they even have special vents skimming the pool surface to vent out chlorine vapors that is prevalent in so many pools. They are all about building confidence, teaching each child to their strengths and different ways of learning until the reach that “oh, I get it” moment each experiences. In 1993, FOSS was a coach of swim teams with over 50,000 sessions himself when he wrote manuals on swimming teaching methods. His teams won 12 Championships and have national records. We do not know an opening date yet but will keep you posted for when they open in Spring.
