the journey so far...
The International Swim Schools Association (ISSA) was formed in 2017, by a group of swim school owners on a mission to help support the Swim School Industry globally. Initially established to help support swim school business owners, ISSA has gradually developed into a support system for businesses in every corner of the world. To empower and educate them in the areas of business acumen, professional development, establishing local swim associations, networking opportunities and much more!
Since its inception, ISSA has conducted several international events including two International Conferences (International Swim Schools Spectacular – Gold Coast and Singapore), many virtual seminars and several position papers on topics relevant to, and influential within, the swim school industry.
