Fort Collins residents have a new way to learn how to swim.

Splash Pool Services, Inc., has been offering swim lessons and pool management services to home owners associations in Northern Colorado for 16 years, most recently launching their newest venture, Splash Swim School, at the corner of Prospect and Shields (1110 W. Prospect Road).

The new school offers private, parent/tot, introduction, beginning, and advanced level lessons, aiming to educate students about water safety and drowning prevention.

Prospective students can swim for free at the school's grand opening event on Sunday, November 20, from 2 to 5 p.m. and enjoy games, swim lesson and party rental giveaways, a bouncy castle, and face painting.
