The five-year partnership, which will run through 2024, aligns with Streamline Brands' focus of providing a lifetime of safety and opportunity by teaching the joy and skill of swimming.
"Learning to swim is at the heart of our brand, and we are excited to join forces with Streamline Brands," said Tom Wenzler, Vice President of Sales, TYR Sport. "The swim schools managed by Streamline provide services to children and competitors alike. We, along with Streamline Brands, are committed to swimmers and athletes at every level, making this partnership a great fit."
