Aqua-Tots Swim Schools, the largest international swim school franchise is officially coming to The Magic City. This new Hoover location, set to open mid-September, will mark this company’s first Alabama location. Keep reading for more info.

Aqua-Tots is dedicated to making safe + confident swimmers

Yahoo! reported that even though Birmingham is known for its proximity to water, the community lacks a dedicated swim school that offers year-round lessons. Until now!

Aqua-Tots Swim Schools exists to offer a solution that caters to the needs of active families in the area, particularly those with young children.

Owner Dave Dunlap spoke to Yahoo! about bringing the mission of Aqua-Tots to Birmingham.

“Our mission is profoundly simple—to save lives. Providing Birmingham families with year-round access to swim lessons in a purpose-built facility is an absolute game changer.

As a Birmingham native and parent myself, water safety has always been a priority for me. Aqua-Tots Hoover will provide a new level of accessibility for parents to champion water safety and education in a safe and fun environment for their children.”

Dave Dunlap, Hoover Franchise Owner, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools
