Splash! was founded to address two of the most important issues of our day: Drowning prevention and obesity. Per the NDPA (National Drowning Prevention Alliance), 3500-4000 lives are lost each year in the United States through drowning. That is an average of 10 fatal drownings each day. There are thousands of victims seen at ER departments throughout the country from non-fatal drownings as well. The NDPA goes on to state that learning to swim can reduce the risk of drowning for 1-4 year olds who take formal lessons. And as far as the problem of obesity, the CDC states, “Obesity is a common, serious, and costly disease. The prevalence of obesity was 42.4% in 2017-2018.” The 3 pillars of our program were created to address these 2 very common and serious issues.
Swimming is a life skill and we are not just another aquatics program! There are several factors that make our indoor year round facility unique. Our water temperature is kept at a warm 90 degrees which makes it comfortable for all ages starting as young as 6 months all the way to adults. Our focus is on safety while offering small class sizes, which enables us to individualize the instruction. Splash! has 2 pools. Our main pool mostly consists of lap lane lessons for the older children, more advanced younger swimmers, and our Adult Water Fitness classes. Our 2nd smaller pool has our youngest swimmers, our Splash! Angels program, and private Family Swim bookings for members.
