SafeSplash is so proud to hear when their students are using the skills they learned here to excel in outside activities. Recently, we had one of our students participate in his first triathlon. He did great and credits SafeSplash for this accomplishment.
The American Academy of Pediatrics is relaxing its stance against swimming lessons for children younger than 4. In the past, the AAP advised against swimming lessons for children ages 1 to 3 because there was little evidence that lessons prevented drowning or resulted in better swim skills. Now the group says it’s fine to enroll children as young as 1.
At SafeSplash we pride ourselves on hiring the BEST in the industry! We often have parents ask us how can they be reassured they are receiving the best swim instruction available within our community? When hiring swim instructors we look for a variety of things, but experience and a love for teaching kids to swim is the first and foremost on our list. We have a dedicated and diverse group of individuals teaching at our schools so we can best serve the communities where our schools are located.

Swim lessons for children of any age are not only a good way to promote water safety, they are also a great way to increase self-esteem, a good form of exercise and now research shows may increase their dexterity as they get older. Researchers from Norway and Britain found that children who had taken baby swimming classes did better on tests involving gripping and reaching as well as balance, compared to children who had no experience swimming as babies.
