When a friend needs help, you do your best to help him or her. Before she moves back to Europe next month, my friend Louise worked for a SafeSplash Swim School in Texas. One day, I get a message from Louise asking for some photo help for the swim school. She said they needed photos to help market the swim school. I agreed to help them out, and I visited both school locations on two separate Sundays.
At a recent swim class while my daughter was in the water with her dad, I noticed a woman also watching the Parent-N-Me class in session and introduced myself. Instantly I recognized a familiar accent. Phyl was visiting her daughter’s family from the Isle of Man, and was the great-grandmother of student, 20-month-old Alfie. It is relatively rare to meet anyone from that part of the U.K. since the small island in the Irish Sea between Ireland and England only has a population of about 88,500.
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.
