Our water is always warm so perfect for kiddos to enjoy the pool, and our small class size (maximum of 4 kiddos to 1 instructor) give everyone plenty of personal attention. We also have a climate-controlled lobby so families can comfortably watch the lessons.

Come check us out and save with our Grand Opening Special – 20% off 8 weeks of swim lessons – and it’s super easy to start your safe swimming journey!

We have two options to get registered: you can create an account online at www.safesplash.com (look for the Knoxville – Cedar Bluff location) and follow the prompts. The other option is to give us a call at 865-263-1800, and one of our friendly customer service agents will assist you in the set-up. Not sure what level your kiddo might be in?
