Meet the Owners of Big Blue Noblesville: Gavin and Tara England

One of the fastest growing swim school franchises, Big Blue Swim School announced its expansion into Indiana with franchise partners Gavin and Tara England.

Gavin and Tara England with their 3 children: Reis, Molly, and Cooper

The Big Blue Swim School in Noblesville is owned and operated by Gavin and Tara England, local Carmel residents. The couple committed to developing the swim school brand in greater Indianapolis with 5 locations; Noblesville, located in Hamilton Town Center, is the first.

Both Gavin and Tara spent their professional careers (thus far) in the financial services industry. Gavin was focused on the retirement plan area while Tara worked in marketing and sales for asset management companies. Gavin is originally from Indiana and is a proud alum of Indiana University. Tara hails from Western Massachusetts and graduated from the College of the Holy Cross. After their paths collided, life and work took them to the San Francisco Bay area for several years. Here they struggled to find quality swimming lessons for their young children.

After moving back to Indiana in 2019, they tried together to find a business that they loved, thought could be successful, and offered community enhancement quality. That is how they found and connected with the nationally renowned Big Blue Swim School. They believe the quality experience for both children learning to swim and the parents and families that support them will be a great benefit to the Noblesville area. “Big Blue’s curriculum, convenience, technology solutions, and state of the art facilities cannot be beaten, and we are beyond excited to open the doors to the Noblesville and Fishers families,” said Tara.

This pool and swim school are operated by Hamilton County parents for Hamilton County parents and kids. When not at the pool, Gavin and Tara are volunteer youth sports coaches (soccer/basketball), school volunteers, scout troop helpers, and professional shuttle drivers and cheerleaders for their twins Molly and Cooper and their older son Reis.
