Hello, my name is Kristen and I have a small business teaching swim lessons. I have lived in southwest Fl for the past 11 years, and found this area despertly needs more pools available for teaching children and adults water safety. Our mission is to help everyone learn to swim and enjoy water, while respecting its awesome power. I want to build an indoor pool to make the teaching season have less weather interruptions. Consistency is key to learning and increasing the speed at which we can help people learn to swim and enjoy water. The storms we get for months out of the year stop us in our tracks and slow down the progress of our students, exponentially! With an indoor pool available to them, we could make a huge impact on saving lives. 

The sad truth is that Drowning is the number 1 cause of death for children under the age of 5. My passion has always been to help as many people as I can become safe in the water. No family should ever have to go through losing a child due to drowning, when it is preventable with swim lessons starting at an early age.  

I have been wanting to find a way to build this for about 9 years now and crowdfunding has just been taught to me. This facility will be built by a local family business, to whom I have taught their 2 older children and are currently teaching their youngest child. I feel supporting small family businesses in anyway is the backbone of this country, and want to use all local businesses for this project. 

No amount is too small to give. Together we can build great things, making a huge impact in our area to save lives. Thank you for all your support and I can’t wait to see this dream come to fruition.
