Sharks & Minnows swim school was established in 1990 by Andy Heinrich. What started as one instructor teaching in one pool, has since grown into one of Florida’s largest swim schools with locations from Orlando to Boca Raton, and everywhere in between. Headquartered in Orlando, Sharks & Minnows now employs over 50 instructors, and holds classes in over 30 Florida locations. As a swim instructor, Andy was committed to making his fun and effective approach to swim instruction accessible to all. To that end, he began to expand his learn-to-swim program by hiring additional instructors, and identifying communities that could benefit from his program. His vision was to create a swim school that could provide lessons within each pocket of the community, making the classes accessible, convenient, and affordable.
