Sports Fan Week

Glow in the Dark Party

On the evening of January 18th, a group of our Pasadena staff members visited the Sierra Madre facility for a “Glow in the Dark” party.  As the patrons were gradually exiting the facility, instructors, office staff, and deck supervisors were all showing up to spend time with each other at their sister facility, with the promise of food and neon decorations as their only motivation.  Employees from both locations gathered around an array of various foods displayed across the picnic table, from homemade enchiladas, to burgers and hot dogs.  Leticia brought ten pounds of carne asada, Jake brought a handful of steak kabobs, and Chris brought cupcakes.  Scarlett, one of our Pasadena Aquatics staff members, brought a number of glow sticks and balloons to put in the pool.   Everyone was excited to pitch in.  With the sun slowly setting over the hills, the light from the pool started to reflect off the surrounding trees and buildings.  Instructors that spend a majority of their week in the pool jumped in for games such as Marco Polo, the Turtle Rodeo, and an improvised, unnamed version of underwater tug-of-war.  On the pool deck, there was a game involving blindfolds and eggs, which somehow remained un-cracked.  Throughout the course of three hours, there were about twenty five staff members mingling, competing, and eating together on a Sunday night under the Sierra Madre skies.  It was encouraging to see these young people bonding outside of their required work time, and then offering to help clean up when the night was over.  As easy as it was to plan and organize, the result was an incredible display of team-building and passion for what we do.  We look forward to future events and parties, not only for the free food and games, but for an opportunity to strengthen the bond between staff members.

New Level System

Waterworks Aquatics Swim School is always on the cutting edge of pre-competitive swim lessons. Each swim instructor is provided with hours of training both in the water and in the office. Our new Swim Level System provides a fun, gradual swim progression. Instead of 8 swim levels, there are now 12 swim levels as well as some fun characters to motivate your swimming progress. This system will be implemented in each of our locations. We have seven locations in California: Beverly Hills, Carlsbad, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Pasadena, Sierra Madre, and San Jose. In February we are set to open our eighth location in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Our Highlands Ranch location will be one of the only swim schools that are completely enclosed, allowing for year-round swim lessons despite the weather. Our swim school has the fast student progression, and this level system expedites the process. In addition, we offer swimming clinics such as Dives & Turns Clinic and Stroke Clinic to improve conditioning, technique, speed, and stroke refinement. Students will then jump from level to level, and demonstrate their new abilities at Swim Competitions. Each Swim Competition is your chance to win medals and trophies.

Swim Loyalty Rewards

This past weekend, Waterworks Aquatics hosted its annual Status Loyalty Party. Waterworks Aquatics created a Swim Loyalty Rewards Program to reward our loyal clients with extra benefits they can enjoy all year around! There are five membership levels one can acquire: Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, and Diamond Elite. Each membership level has its own qualifications and benefits. Some of these benefits include, but are not limited to: freezes, exceptions to the 9am cancellation policy, and free-swim passes.

In order to use a freeze, one must make the cancellation at least 6 days in advance. The exception to the 9am cancellation policy requires at least two hours notification in order to receive a make-up. A make-up is simply rescheduling a cancelled class at anytime, other than the scheduled lesson time.
