Foss Swim School has announced the opening of its 9th location in Minnesota.
The Eden Prairie-based company has 22 locations across the Midwest, with the latest opening its doors on Wednesday on the Richfield and Edina border.
The school has moved into the former Pier 1 premises at Southdale Square, between West 66th Street and York Avenue South.
Foss Swim School's other Minnesota locations are all in the Twin Cities metro: In Blaine, Chanhassen, Maple Grove, Plymouth, Savage, St. Louis Park, St. Paul, and Woodbury.
The school says that with COVID, the past year has seen extra focus put on its "often overlooked ... state-of-the-art filtration systems" that are designed to "keep fresh outside air mixing and circulating in pool areas at a very high rate."
This, it says, helps reduce the transmission of COVID-19 among those using the facility.
“As we step foot into our newest location, we couldn’t be more excited,” said Craig O’Halloran, Chief Operating Officer & Controller at Foss Swim School, in a press release.
"Sunny days are ahead and learning how to swim is an essential skill that we feel strongly about at FOSS. We believe that the Richfield and Edina communities will benefit from this purpose-built school as we head into the spring and summer when swimming is at its peak."
