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.

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?
Introducing our swimmer of the month for January, Ms. Halle. Halle has been with SafeSplash for a year and has made tremendous strides in that time. When Halle was first enrolled in classes she was a little timid about putting her face in and doing a back float on her own. You would never guess that if you watched her swim today.
