SPLASH is a full-service, mobile swim instruction business owned by Lauren Boultbee that guarantees one on one swimming instruction from a qualified and enthusiastic instructor who values safety, fun and success. SPLASH is dedicated to not only providing engaging and quality swim instruction that results in significant progress for students but also unparalleled customer service and communication with clients.

The program provides hands-on business mentoring from local business leaders and offers students grants up to $3000 to start a business and turn their Summer Company into a reality.
As a training partner of the Canadian Red Cross and an affiliate of the Lifesaving Society, all SPLASH instructors are fully certified by the Red Cross and Lifesaving Society as both instructors and lifeguards with up to date certifications in Standard First Aid and CPR C.
