Sometimes it's hard to imagine the life of a swimming athlete from the outside. What does a gym at 5 am really look like anyway? But we all have something that links us to Olympic swimmers and that something is we all hate jumping in cold pools! Listen to Olympic swimmers express our collective angst of the cold plunge!
Dear SafeSplash Family,
Due to Hurricane Irma, our sister schools' Swimtastic Florida locations will be temporarily closed over the weekend. Again, the safety of our swimmers is of the most importance, and we hope everyone stays safe during the storm. North America is on track to endure two back to back powerful hurricanes. It is up to us as people to support our fellow neighbors and communities. Please consider donating your time or money to relief efforts for those affected. We're all in this together. Swimtastic weather closures are as follows:
Last month Streamline Brands swim schools,SafeSplash Swim School, Swimtastic Swim School, and SwimLabs Swim School competed in the "I Swim Because" Facebook social contest. So many of you told us why you swam and we were truly inspired and touched by your passion. Of all the schools that competed, SwimLabs Sandy took gold getting 5-time Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin to Utah! Local Utah news station KUTV was on hand to report on the event. See the video report here!
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.
