How large is the learn-to-swim market and what is your perspective on relevant trends within the space?
Hope you’re doing well. As a brief intro, my name is Suman Siva and I'm an Associate at a consumer investing firm called Castanea Partners. We’re looking to learn more about the 'learn to swim market' that teaches young children how to swim through structured classes. We'd love to better understand the size of this market, as well how the market size is changing as more structured offerings emerge. Our understanding is that there are a few types of players:
1) Branded players focused on providing structured LTS classes (e.g. Goldfish swim schools, Aqua Tots)
2) Mom and pop and community swim programs that provide LTS classes (e.g. YMCAs)
3) Informal offerings (e.g. kids learning from parents, at summer camps, other teachers)
We were wondering if you would be able to connect us with someone who could speak to the market, including market size and recent trends in a consulting capacity. Look forward to hearing from you!
