June 08, 2017

Learning to swim is a defining experience in a child's life, an experience that creates lasting memories similar to learning to ride a bike.  But unlike riding a bike, swimming is important to your child's safety and development.  At SafeSplash, we understand...swimming is a life skill®. We also understand that swimming develops into a true passion for many; This is why we wanted to know what inspires you to swim!

THANK YOU to everyone that participated in the 'I Swim Because' contest! We had an amazing turnout and learned why many of our peers and students swim. We saw some truly inspiring individuals sharing why swimming is close to their heart.

4 Reasons Why Giving Back is Good for Your Health

November 29, 2016

Whew…it’s exhausting. These days are often stressful and fueled by competition and the thrill of finding the best deal for the lowest price. It seems that family traditions of sitting around the table playing board games or telling stories has recently been replaced by after Thanksgiving holiday shopping. Now don’t get me wrong, I love a good deal just as much as the next person but I also love the feeling of togetherness, quality time and giving back.
