Swimming was something that young women, growing up in Denver, just didn't do. You should understand that in my Mom’s day there were no public swimming pools. To cool off on hot days, people went to the various lakes around the city. Typically, the boys and men would dive off docks into the cold lakes and would swim around, and the women and girls would sunbathe and wade in the shallow parts of the lake. Swimming lessons were nonexistent. The way that most people learned to swim was the “sink or swim” method: you were pushed into the water and either you made it back to the dock or someone would pull you out. So, like many people in that generation, my mom never learned to swim.
This year marks SafeSplash’s 10th anniversary and we’re celebrating in a BIG way! We recently acquired the Swimtastic® Swim School brand; which provides swimming lessons in warm water schools in Wisconsin, Nebraska and Florida, making us the largest swim school network in North America, with 111 locations in 13 states! To say we are excited to welcome this award winning brand to our team would be quite an understatement.

Some of you may not know that SafeSplash also offers Adult Swim lessons. We provide adults the opportunity to learn how to swim, even if they didn’t have the opportunity as a child. Do you want the same confidence in the water that you see in your child, even if you have some anxiety of the water?
Did you know SafeSplash offers lessons to all ages including Adults? Parents want their children to learn to swim for various reasons: safety, life skills, a requirement for scouts or similar activity, or because they have a background in swimming. But not all parents are strong swimmers themselves.
