WHO IS FIRST SPLASHES?
At First Splashes, it's our mission to provide children with the ability to swim. Look at where we live, Australia! Most of the population lives a short distance from a beach, lake, river or watering hole. Swimming is an asset for life!
Founded in 2005 by Ben Jenkinson, First Splashes has developed a leading learn to swim school and centre management organisation. Currently, First Splashes has over 1400 children enrolled in their comprehensive learn to swim program. Encompassing age and skill levels and abilities, our little learners embark on their swimming journey with encouragement and vigour. Ben & Cassandra enjoy the company of 4 children; Rylee, Jett, Beau & Ajay, all of whom are actively involved in acceptance testing of the ever evolving swim program.
Not just a learn to swim school, but also a dymanic leisure facility and aquatic centre management organisation. The organisation is skilled at managing single and multi-site and co-branded centres.
Having developed successful management practice's and policy's, First Splashes also consults on an ongoing basis to centres located around Australia, on program development, centre management and developing community and indigenous programs and activities.
