DENVER, June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SafeSplash Brands, which franchises premium, warm water learn-to-swim schools throughout North America under the SafeSplash Swim School and Swimtastic Swim School brands, has signed an agreement to partner with Missy Franklin, Olympic Champion, professional swimmer, and USA Swimming Foundation Ambassador, to enhance opportunities for children to learn to swim on a global scale and grow the brand family.
"We are absolutely ecstatic about our partnership with Missy. Not only does she have a world class swimming resume, but her personal mission to develop new outlets for children to learn how to swim and learn to love the water is directly in line with what we are about at SafeSplash," said Matthew Lane, CEO of SafeSplash Swim School. "Her integrity, commitment to family and personal values speak for themselves. She is the perfect fit to help us continue to develop fantastic ways to help kids and create new swim school outlets around the world."
Missy Franklin will play an integral role in helping SafeSplash continue to evolve its innovative and effective teaching methods for kids. SafeSplash's curriculum is built around proprietary teaching methods based on the learnings from teaching more than 4.5 million swimming lessons. Using this model as a base, Franklin will focus on enhancing the elements of the curriculum focused on competitive swim technique and also on developing additional ways for kids to learn to love the water.
"From the moment SafeSplash approached me to join their team, I felt it was a great fit. The commitment we both have to create opportunities for kids to learn to love to swim resonates deeply with me," shared Franklin. "Swimming has given me a platform to help others feel pride, confidence and personal achievement. My partnership with SafeSplash will allow me to expand my ability to do just that by reaching families around the globe."
SafeSplash's more than 125 locations in the U.S. and Mexico are based on small class sizes no larger than 4 to 1 and experienced and passionate instructors using the company's proven, proprietary instruction model that has been refined over the past 19 years. Further, the SafeSplash schools model their student / teacher selection process after the "SafeSplash Match®" method, which incorporates student personality and skill level, student maturity, instructor teaching style and instructor personality to create a match that accelerates learning and enhances results.
SafeSplash was recently named the fastest growing Swim School franchise brand family by Entrepreneur magazine and was featured in their Radicals and Visionaries series.
