WHY SWIM WITH AFA?
Every client is unique, every situation is different. Clients turn to Aqua Fun Academy for lots of reasons. But, in most cases, it distills down to a single word: Trust.
Enjoy all the benefits of Aqua Fun Academy while swimming with us. Read more about how we make your experience easier for you.
Complimentary Makeup Classes
Because you deserve the ultimate flexibility.
We understand clients sometimes have other commitments and we will try our best to accommodate that. If you cannot make a class please let us know and we will try to get you or your child into an additional class in the coming weeks. As makeup class availability is limited we do ask for your patience and flexibility, and that you let us know as early as possible. After your second makeup request we will still work to accommodate you however priority will be given to other students with less makeup requests.
Warm Water Pool
Because learning is easier when you’re comfortable.
As an adult joining our program, soaking in warm water is one of the oldest forms of medicine, and there’s good reason why this practice has stood the test of time. Research has shown warm water therapy works wonders for all kinds of musculoskeletal complaints, including fibromyalgia, arthritis and low back pain.
For parents with kids, how great is it when your child doesn’t catch a cold in the pool? Even better when they want to come to classes willingly. Warmer water helps leave a better impression for kids, who are more likely to want to continue each week.

Because nothing says ‘welcome’ more than a lovely cup of tea or coffee.

Virtual 24 Hour Service
Because our world isn’t 9 to 5 anymore.
You’re a parent. You’re a energetic go-getter. You have a busy schedule. So why are you waiting “in priority sequence” on the phone with your swim school when you have more important things to do? …In the middle of the day! Completely unacceptable? We certainly think so.
AFA prides itself on its virtual 24 hour service. Calling late at night? Not a problem. After we leave the office incoming calls are forwarded to staff cell phones, and every staff member is ready and happy to assist you. If you happen to get voicemail (no system is perfect), we’ll usually get back to you within the hour. And no, no automated service. A human being will pick up every time!
We got you covered.
Please note that for safety and security purposes we do not accept incoming calls from private, blocked or withheld numbers. If you are calling from such a number please leave a detailed voicemail with a callback number and we will be happy to give you a call back. Thank you.

World Class Instructors
Because you never leave something as serious as water safety in the hands of amateurs.
All of our instructors successfully complete a rigorous certification program to expand technical knowledge before delivering classes. To ensure high-quality training after certification, they keep their skills up-to-date through ongoing professional development. All our instructors have minimum 2 years of hands-on experience (most have minimum 4 years), either through volunteering or through previous employment. We believe when it comes to teaching something as serious as water safety, experience is required. Their capabilities and passion are world-class, as will your experience with them.
