I come from a family of swimmers. Not professional swimmers, mind you, but we can all at least float and get from point A to point B in the water. My brother, cousins and I were all taught how important it is to know how to swim from an early age. For your health. For survival. For fun. All of us grew up hearing the story of how my grandfather swam the widest part of the Hudson River near Haverstraw, New York, as did his sister Florence, apparently setting a record at the time. That is about three and a half miles wide. (I cannot verify the record, but it always sounded good.)
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.
With summer just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to stay active in swim lessons! From pool parties to family beach vacations, water is the ultimate summer destination and it’s important to make sure that you have all of the skills for a fun, safe summer in and around the water.
