The average drowning victim in the United States is a two-year-old boy.

Safety in a pool environment is our number one concern for our Baby Splash classes. We focus on teaching babies to recover from falls and similar accidents in the water, as well as teaching fundamental swimming skills because they're easier to learn if started at a very young age.

Our classes are available for babies as young as 5 months and are affordable to all - sessions include 5 classes spread over 5 weeks and the total for the entire session is only $55.00 per child.  

We believe that an early start leads to a very happy and water-safe toddler!
