Who are they?
Sharyn and Geoff were both part-time workers previous to owning a JUMP!. Sharyn was a swim instructor for 26 years and Geoff was a builder.
The couple have four children and five grandchildren. “Our daughter works at the swim centre and our youngest son comes down on Wednesday after school and does a few little odd jobs.”
Why did they decide to purchase a franchise with JUMP!?
“Since returning to Adelaide a few years ago, I was never happy with the standard of swimming lessons in Adelaide and I knew I could do a better job, so I looked for swim schools for sale and came across JUMP!.”
“What I liked was the actual philosophy, swimming and children – and we liked the program. We flew to QLD and had a look at Miami and Southport and we loved it!”
We asked Sharyn what her favourite part about owning and managing a JUMP! was.
“Probably teaching. You can have the roughest day and then you get in the pool and everything melts away.”
