Aqua-Tots Urges Families to Stay Safe This Fall With Swim Lessons

World’s largest swim school urging families to keep focus on water safety

PHOENIX (Oct. 31, 2022) – Even with summer now just a memory, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools wants everyone to know that water safety isn’t seasonal.

According to a report from the CDC, drowning is the leading cause of injury and death to children ages one-to-four years old. Aqua-Tots wants to offer solutions to those statistics by showing that next summer’s water-safe swimmers begin with lessons this fall.

“A young child’s curiosity for the water does not have a season,” said Ruth Franks Snedecor, MD, Internal Medicine Hospitalist. “Adults often decrease their water safety vigilance when cooler temperatures arrive because in their mind, the pool is closed. That’s why, even now, it is still important for children to learn and work on their techniques in the water.”

With November being National Child Safety and Protection Month, now is the perfect time to enroll into the world’s largest swim school and get an introduction to the ins and outs of water safety from some of the best accredited instructors.

“Even in seasons when swimming isn’t the main activity, children still find themselves around water,” said Aqua-Tots CEO Craig Wright. “By enrolling in one of our swim schools all across the globe, learning about water safety at a young age not only allows children to participate in fun adventures but also provides their parents much-needed peace of mind.”

Aqua-Tots currently has 127 locations worldwide and teaches five million swim lessons a year. Additionally, every swim instructor has completed more than 40 hours of intensive in-water and classroom training. The Aqua-Tots Swim Journey is comprised of eight levels of comprehensive curriculum that is tried, true and trusted all over the world. Each level is designed to build upon the next, taking each child on a journey toward becoming a safe and confident swimmer for life.

Aqua-Tots offers swim lessons for children as young as four months all the way through 12 years old. Children can participate in private lessons or small group classes to help ensure a safe environment for proper swim instruction.
