Swimming Safari Swim School Breaks Ground On Jacksonville’s First Swim School
Swimming Safari Swim School is constructing Jacksonville’s very first stand-alone indoor swim school. The new state of the art indoor facility will serve as a valuable community resource in the fight against drowning by allowing year round lessons.
According to the CPSC, the average annual drowning related deaths from 2007 to 2009, was 390 children ages 0 to 15 per year. This statistic becomes even more astonishing for Florida residents, since Florida leads the nation in child drowning deaths. Swimming Safari has made it their mission to use every opportunity to combat this statistic. They have been providing summer instruction at several rented pools throughout Jacksonville for 7 years. This summer their instructors taught more than 8,000 lessons. The new facility will have the capacity to teach 54,000 lessons per year.
“At Swimming Safari our mission is to provide every student with the skills needed to become Safe, Happy, and Confident, in the water. Our goal is to create safe life-long swimmers who enjoy the water as much as we do!”- Joani Maskell, Owner
