What makes Ripples Swim School unique?
At Ripples Swim School we operate a family-friendly facility with warm pool and air temperatures. Our salt water pool and customized amenities are designed around the needs of children and families. The Swim Lessons we offer move at your child’s pace with small class sizes and levels broken down into easy to achieve benchmarks. Ripples Swim School offers “continual” lesson programs rather than “session based” programs. Continual lessons meet at a pre-designated time, once a week (multiple days per week can be added easily). Your child will be automatically re-enrolled at the beginning of each month for their same time slot. Due to there
being no gaps and no time-off between sessions, continual lessons help to prevent skills from eroding. Kids who take year round swim lessons learn to swim and be safe in the water at a faster pace.
Why a saltwater pool?
Saltwater pools are on the rise as an alternative to traditional chlorine-based pools. One of the biggest advantages of a saltwater pool is that they are more environmentally safe and use fewer chemicals than a traditional chlorine-based pool. Another advantage is the level of comfort you experience in a saltwater pool. You can say good-bye to red stinging eyes, irritated skin, discolored hair, and faded swim suits as saltwater pools are much softer on your skin, hair, and eyes. They are also far more suitable for asthma and allergy sufferers.
