SafeSplash Swim School
In 2005, Matt and Lara Lane became frustrated with the lack of warm-water swimming classes available for their two young kids. So, as former competitive swimmers themselves, Matt and Lara dove right into the problem and established their own swim school. The first SafeSplash opened its doors in Denver in 2006, and since then, the company's numbers truly tell the story:
- More than 4.5 million swim lessons in the past decade
- More than 100 locations across the U.S.
- Nearly 40 locations opened in Mexico since SafeSplash expanded there in early 2016
SafeSplash facilities specialize in teaching swimming to children (starting at six months old) and adults. Inside each location, SafeSplash certified instructors—who must complete the company's proprietary curriculum—provide one-on-one instruction during classes, camps, and special needs programs. Though they're serious about their jobs, SafeSplash's instructors strive to create a positive, fun environment, which only helps create confident lifelong swimmers in the process. They are committed to provide a premium learning environment .
Awards and recognition have poured in steadily since SafeSplash opened a decade ago. But one accomplishment, in particular, stands out: the company partners with Olympic champion Missy Franklin, who plays a key role in helping SafeSplash evolve its already innovative teaching methods. What's more, Entrepreneur named the company the nation's fastest growing swim school franchise at the start of 2016.
Need To Know
About SafeSplash Swim School
SwimLabs Swim School’s instructors have two priorities: teaching kids and adults how to swim and helping competitive swimmers optimize their strokes. In addition to CPR and first-aid certifications backed by years of experience, the instructors are aided by swimming-pool technology. Their private and small-group lessons take place in SwimLabs Pools with adjustable currents, each about 10’x16’ and heated to 90–92 degrees to prevent polar-bear infestations. The custom currents can give beginner students a boost or challenge advanced swimmers with more forceful resistance waves. As swimmers paddle against the current, the staff records their strokes with Dartfish video technology. They then analyze the results together, comparing the swimmer’s form to a video of proper technique.
