Free swim lessons to Jacksonville families

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — AQUAfin Swim School Offers FREE Swim Assessments to Promote Water Safety with Back to School Open House.

With child drowning deaths in Florida being at an all-time high in 2021, Northeast Florida’s premiere swim school led by a two-time Olympian is taking a water safety initiative by offering free swim assessments to the Jacksonville community.


AQUAfin Swim School welcomes local families to visit its Back to School Open House event this Saturday and Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. to learn about swimming and water safety before the summer ends.

“Unlike our other open houses that we hold every weekend, this will be during our fifth week when we don’t have regular lessons,” said AQUAfin Founder and two-time Olympian Nim Shapira. “This will allow families to better engage with our staff to ask questions and tour our state-of-the-art facilities before their schedules fill up again when school starts.”
