SafeSplash Swim School, a nationally recognized learn-to swim program, offers programs for children and adults, birthday parties, summer camps, other swimming-related activities, and the sale of related products. To date SafeSplash has delivered over 1.25 million lessons, touching thousands of families across the country since 2005. SafeSplash Swim School offers a unique franchise concept that it teaches a life skill, swimming, that nearly every parent recognizes their children must learn.

Besides the obvious importance of safety, swimming lessons can be rewarding and provide a lifetime of fun.

SafeSplash 02

From the beginning we wanted to build the best. Our proprietary curriculum was founded on the four competitive strokes. We took the best components of swim instruction to build a curriculum that teaches children to swim from day one. No matter what age, no matter what level, our curriculum was built around not just water safety; but truly teaching kids how to swim. We will equip you with this easily trainable curriculum that fits the learning style of almost any swimmer.

At SafeSplash, “Swimming is a life skill, not just an activity.”
