Whether you’re looking to design a new pool or improve an existing facility it’s a lot of work and the BAP+ conference is probably the best place to start! The team at Total Aquatic Programming, along with their guest lecturers and vendors, do a fantastic job of breaking down the sometimes overwhelming process into manageable and actionable steps. Learning from these experts early can save you time, money, and headaches throughout your pool-building process!

I want to let you know how much I appreciated the absolute wealth of information that was included in the Virtual Build a Pool workshop. I have been involved with aquatics my entire life, as a lifeguard, a pool operator, a Park and Recreation Director and a long-time swim parent. Even though the concepts were very familiar to me – the learning curve was huge. Such a great job of organization, presentation and thoughtful advice. Best money I have spent in a long time!
I loved it and seriously learned way more than I dreamt! I may just be back next year! Hoping to make this dream a reality!! Just some thoughts...I would have preferred the conference over the weekend and tagged it onto beginning or end of the week. For those of us that had to take off work that week it would've been nicer to not use entire week for conference if possible. The last day I wish we could've attended both parts. Ideally, I would've liked to have gone to all the conference and not had to choose which one to attend. I know it was video recorded which helped but still would've preferred to be able to attend them all. Lastly, I wish the power point presentations were given to us earlier where we could have printed them out prior to coming, or if you would have had them printed. I would've paid extra to have them on paper. I wrote notes in a notebook but would have been beneficial to have notes written on the powerpoint slides themselves. There really wasn't much to critique!! You guys put on a fabulous conference and highly recommend it to anyone looking at building a pool!! There was much thought put into it and years of experience which showed. I'm blessed I was able to attend!! Thanks again!
