Splash into Summer – Swim and Safety!


Join our conversation with Bonnie Alcid, the Owner of British Swim School DMV.  British Swim School DMV teaches over 1500 swim lessons a week in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Focused on life-saving skills, British Swim School provides water survival and learn-to-swim lessons for ages 3 months to adult.  In 2008, Bonnie left behind 15 years of 60 hour work weeks to focus on her lifelong love, swimming.  She started out as a Swim Instructor for British Swim School and then in 2010 she signed her first franchise agreement.  In 2016, Bonnie took on the role of National Aquatics Director for the British Swim School corporate office, she traveled extensively throughout 2016 & 2017 training new franchises in the British Swim School methods.  In late 2018, British Swim School Central Maryland became a Founding Member of the Hope Floats Foundation, a non-profit that provides swim lesson scholarships to underprivileged children.  In early 2019, Bonnie signed franchise agreements for Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, which makes Bonnie one of the British Swim School’s largest franchisees in the country. Bonnie lives in Gaithersburg with her husband and 2 children.
