Who are we?
Splash Zone opened Summer of 2019 by two highly motivated individuals who saw a need in the community for a place to let families come together. With an incredibly unique business model and a focus on personal fitness, family growth and health, Splash Zone is excited to be the first in the industry to provide a membership based program that offers not only open swim but also lessons, aquatic fitness programs, and more. With memberships tailored to individual needs, you can optimize your investment in our programs without breaking the bank! In December 2019, a third individual was added to our ownership after consulting since August 2019. Meet our owners below!
