At certain SafeSplash locations, we've strategically chosen to provide swim lessons in a 25-yard pool to ensure our swimmers are learning how to swim in a typical pool environment. This works well for little ones who are learning water safety and more advanced swimmers who are working on stroke development.
Some of our SafeSplash Schools require all swimmers to wear goggles as part of the equipment required to learn to swim. However, there is another important piece of equipment which is important for swimmers with longer hair – it’s a Swim Cap.

But what do you do with the ribbons after the celebrations are over? Swimmers who start swimming competitively at a young age can collect hundreds of ribbons by the age of 10. Piles of ribbons can be found in every drawer or closet in the house.
