Swimming Around the Corner & Across the Globe Since 1991

In 1991, Aqua-Tots Swim School began in a community pool in Tempe, Arizona, where one teenage lifeguard taught one single lesson, and a dream was born. At a time when quality childhood swim lessons were a novelty, Ron and Jane Sciarro created a different kind of swim experience. In borrowed backyard pools and rented hotel facilities around the greater Phoenix area, the Sciarros offered parents a place where they could be heard, where goals for their children in the water weren’t simply a wish list, but a commitment. And Aqua-Tots took off!

By 2005, with the help of Paul and Heather Preston, the first indoor, year-round Aqua-Tots Swim School opened in Mesa, Arizona, followed quickly by the first franchise in 2007. Today, Aqua-Tots Swim School serves more than 150 communities in 14 countries as the largest international provider of year-round, indoor swim instruction, community outreach and drowning prevention education. Its trusted program is dedicated to children of all abilities from four months to 12 years old and features a proven curriculum used to teach more than five million swim lessons each year.
