Safesplash Swim School General Manager Alison Arnold

Alison Arnold, General Manager


Hi, my name is Alison Arnold. I am originally from Iowa. I participated in several sports growing up, but soccer was my passion which lead me to college with scholarships. I attended Iowa Central Community College where I graduated in 2014 with my Associates of Arts Degree, with an emphasis in Criminal Justice. I transferred to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln where I graduated in December of 2017 receiving my Bachelors of Arts Degree in Communication Studies with a minor in Psychology. I grew up going to my city’s water park every summer, because it was my favorite place to be. As soon as I turned 16 I applied to work at the city’s water park and worked my up from concessions to lifeguard to swim instructor and continued working there from 2010-2017. I am excited to become a part of SafeSplash in my General Manager position here at the Parker and Arapahoe location starting in 2018 and look forward to meeting you all.

Steve Albert, Swim Instructor

Steve’s love for water began when he took his first swim lesson. At the age of 10, Steve began to participate in swimming competitions.  During his senior year of High School, Steve earned his Water Safety Instructor and Senior Lifesaving Certificates.   Throughout his college years, Steve worked as a Lifeguard, Coach and Swim Instructor. 

After college, Steve went on to have long a successful career as a manager for several large and prominent companies.   As a manager, his chief responsibilities were to train and motivate employees. While he loved working as a manager, Steve’s all-time favorite job was teaching kids to swim.  So, when Steve was able to retire, he returned to the water.  

Steve holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Marketing from Colorado State University and was a competitive Olympic Weight Lifter in college. Steve is married and has a daughter, 2 grandchildren and a dog that watches television.
