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.

The best place all summer!

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!!!

Benefits of Winter Swimming

Strengthening Immunity – The increased rate of illness in winter is NOT due to cold weather, but to people being inside more and having closer proximity to each other. Being wet or cold (while uncomfortable) does not promote illness. Exercise strengthens the immune system, and if the immune system is strong, a wet head in cold weather does not make a person more susceptible to illness.

Continuity – without a doubt, babies and young swimmers who swim right through winter have the greatest chance of reaching their full potential.

Physical Fitness – Children who swim tend to be healthier than their non-swimming counterparts. This has been confirmed by studies in Germany some years ago. Why is this so? The deep breathing that we do helps to keep the lungs clear of accumulated mucous, reducing proneness to respiratory problems. Hence, swimming is a preferred exercise for asthmatics.

Keep it Sanitary – One of the best ways to sanitize your kiddos is to put them in the pool! Chlorine eliminates a lot of the risk of spreading germs between playmates.

What You Should Know

  • Class sizes will continue to be small to enable social distancing within the class area as well as provide an ecellent learning environment.
  • We strongly encourage persons who are in high risk groups to continue to wear face masks and take precautions.
  • In accordance with USA Swimming reopening guidelines we strongly encourage all swimmers to arrive and leave in their swim suits. We understand that there may be extenuating circumstances then please use the changing rooms.

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