Aqua Culture Swim School was founded on the simple yet powerful assertion that Drowning IS Preventable. Drownings are the leading cause of injury death for young children ages 1 to 4 and the second leading cause in children 1 to 14; three children die in the US every day as a result of drowning. Research has shown that participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children aged 1 to 4 years.

Have had a great experience with Aqua Culture! We live very close so it was convenient and they were flexible with us switching classes as our schedule had changed. If we have another little one will definitely bring them there to learn how to swim!!!

Researchers at Griffith University found that swim lessons actually teach a whole lot more than bubble blowing and back floats. In fact, their study showed that kids who took swim lessons before the age of 5, were 6 to 20 months ahead of their peers…in a ton of different areas.

The study looked at 7,000 kids who took swimming lessons in the USA, Australia and New Zealand. Turns out, those swim class kids had a substantial competitive edge across all developmental areas:

  • Intellectually, they were 6 months ahead of their peers in counting and mathematics reasoning.
  • Physically, they were 7 months ahead in motor development.
  • Socially, they were 15 months ahead in socio and emotional development.

What You Should Know

  • Class sizes will continue to be small to enable social distancing within the class area as well as provide an excellent learning environment.
  • We strongly encourage persons who are in high risk groups to continue to wear face masks and take precautions.

All policies are subject to change as we implement and follow best practices outlined by CDC and Maryland state health department.

Follow Good Safety Practices and Observe Pool Etiquette During Rec Swim Times – Rec swim guidelines: Parents need to be in the water unless the swimmer is 6 or older and at least level 3B. Any floatation devices must be coast guard approved and the use of a floatation device does not override the need for the parent to be in the water. A parent must be on deck with all swimmers even if the parent is not required to be in the water. Constant supervision is a key element to water safety.
