Waterworks Aquatics, southern Californiaâ€™s number one Swim School and Aquatics Center, is proud to present itself to the City of Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley area with a newly built 15,000 square foot indoor swim facility. The company is scheduled to open its new state-of-the-art indoor swim facility on Wednesday, May 15th.
They will hold their Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Thursday, May 23rd from 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. The event will include complimentary snacks, and beverages. Waterworks Aquatics will also be opening up their two indoor pools for free swim and water activities for the entire family to enjoy.
California is one of 10 states in which drowning is the leading cause of death for children under 15 years of age. In an effort to reduce this statistic and promote water safety, Waterworks Aquatics teaches more than 10,000 children to swim each year at its southern California locations. Their new Pasadena location will provide an additional venue where its successes can be shared in the Pasadena area by providing swimming lessons year round in a warm enclosed environment. Classes are offered in two pools, a lap pool heated to 89 degrees and the teaching pool heated to 92 degrees for children and adults ages three months and older.
Waterworks Aquatics provides Private, Semi-Private, Parent and Me, Adult and Stroke Clinic swim classes. It will also offer youth swim teams, summer swim camps, lap swimming, water aerobics, and a venue for birthday parties as well as facilitating aquatic therapy.
â€œThe teaching methodology at Waterworks Aquatics is what differentiates us from other swim schools,â€ said JonAlpert, founder of Waterworks Aquatics. â€œWe utilize an original instructional philosophy of teaching children to roll to their back for a breath rather than lifting their heads to breathe, which allows children as young as 18 months the capability to swim across the pool. The other key component is the use of a specialized muscle memory teaching technique, where students are taught stroke technique at a very young age. We provide small class sizes with individualized attention. We have had so much success with providing a warm environment along with fast progress.â€
With a commitment to â€œLearning it the Right Way, Right from the Beginningâ€, Waterworks Aquatics was voted the Best Swim School in Orange County in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 by the readers of Parenting OC Magazine.
Waterworks Aquatics is running a grand opening special of 20% off swim lesson packages as well as up to 4 free additional lessons up until May 26, 2013.
