Splash Fit Swimming was founded by an aquatic instructor and swim coach in Harlem teaching minority communities basic swimming skills and water safety awareness. With an epidemic of people drowning in the city, he wanted to expand the services where teaching a necessary life-saving skill has been the number one priority. SFS uses advanced teaching techniques on levels based upon ability to promote learning. Our team adjusts the stroke curriculum to meet each swimmer’s specific needs so that they can learn at their own pace, not only making sure that our clients are more comfortable around all aspects of aquatics, but ensuring that they develop a skill set that can be used for the rest of their lives. Splash Fit’s mission is to help participants reach their personal goals, whether it’s for safety around water, staying healthy, competing at an elite level, or recreation.
At Splash Fit Swimming, our team consists of highly trained experienced certified instructors (Red Cross Water Safety Instructors, USA Swimming badged coaches) who come from all areas of the world and focus on training swimmers of all ages reach their personal goals while keeping a positive attitude at all times. These instructors go through various trainings, not only for facilitating swim courses, but on how to best connect with individuals, keeping them comfortable and engaged through out their entire experience. It’s simple to follow curriculum and lesson plans, but we adjust to each and every participant’s learning ability so that they can get the most out of every session. Our founders have been teaching and coaching for over 15 years in the metropolitan area and have trained numerous individuals to reach elite competitions such as Junior Olympics and Zone Qualifiers in the USA Swimming League. We believe that with a positive mindset and a comfortable environment, everyone can learn!
Above all, safety is of most important to us. During all of our sessions, certified lifeguards are always on duty to ensure we enjoy the water in the safest way possible. Our complete team, including coaches and instructors, are all certified in Lifeguarding, CPR/AED and First Aid.
