April 6, 2017. Hello Splash Swimmers, Families & Friends! April is the official ” Adult Learn To Swim Month”, and we are very lucky to have a wonderful, certified ALTS instructor teaching here at Splash. Here is a little about our instructor – Julie Anderson : Julie comes to us as our first Adult Learn To Swim, certified instructor. She had extensive training through US Masters Swimming and specializes in teaching adults who are fearful of the water how to swim by integrating yoga based breathing and relaxation techniques.

After a career as a Pediatric RN, and raising 3 children, she returned to competitive swimming in 2014 and competed at US Masters Nationals. That same year, she placed in the top 50 in breaststroke at the FINA World Championships. In addition to working with non swimmers, she is also certified to teach stroke technique and refinement. Certifications in Lifeguarding, Water Safety Instructor, CPR/ first aid/AED and BLS/CPR for Healthcare providers. (2017 Update – Julie has just won 2 events in the Arizona Senior Olympics!
