SafeSplash Swim School

So my son Has been Swimming on his own for a little over a year now, I started off doing private lessons for around eight months. However, for a single mother this can add up quickly per week of lessons. It was time to give it a break. Then I was approached by a manager from safesplash swim school asking if I would be interested in blogging about their swim school in exchange for 4 weeks of free lessons. I can't tell you how thrilled I was!! I think its amazing this company searches out bloggers like myself for a honest review in exchange for their lessons.
The first step was calling in our scheduled time for the lesson, this process was fast and quick.
I was pleased there are a few safe swim schools in my city, the closest being only 5 miles away!
Our school was located in a 24 hour fitness
The receptionist was nice and let me know where to go
We found the pool and went inside, there was a small table and a sign up sheet.
I was un-sure how to sign in and pretty sure I signed in the wrong spot.
The first day was not a good one for us, the instructor communicated they were short staffed and over booked for that class. My son was placed in a glass that was just learning to swim {he already knows most strokes} so he was pretty bored and was wanting to show off what he knew. There were too many kids for that one instructor so each kid only got around 1-2 minutes with him.
The classes are 30 minutes.

The second lesson we showed up, same instructor and luckily this time my son was placed with other kids who were on his same level and above. The instructor was really nice, maybe a little to soft for my son. My son personally needs someone to physically touch and show him the strokes. This was all verbal and no touching. Which just may be their policies.
The pool is little, lanes are full. All kids had to share on lane. Which lead to some bumps and touching of other kid swimmers.
The bathrooms and changing rooms of 24 hour fitness were clean
They did offer a standing shower near the pool to rinse off in
The hot pool tub was closed down
Over all it was Ok, I really wish they would be more hands on with their strokes. Demonstrating by touch how to do them. If your looking for someone super nice and kind, soft and low spoken this place is just right for you!! My son is high energy and amped and needs a little more direction.
Thank you for the offer Safe Splash School!
