Free Event – Open to the Community

With the warm summer months upon us and kids out of school for the summer, it’s time to hit the beach and pools for some fun. Come out on Sunday, May 21st from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and enjoy our Splash into Summer Safety event. It takes place at 25 Waterworks Way in Irvine. See first-hand at what Orange County firefighters and lifeguards do when a drowning occurs and how parents and babysitters can be prepared for a safe outing at any pool. A live demonstration of a “Mock” drowning water rescue will take place at 4:00 pm.

Around the mock drowning, there will be food, games, and attractions. The activities include balloon twisters, fire engines, bubble rollers, face painting, bounce houses, and more! There will also be free swim for your family to enjoy our heated indoor and outdoor pools! You can RSVP for this event on Facebook or add it to your calendar below.

All Proceeds Go to Charity!

All of the money raised from food and attraction tickets benefits the Waterworks Cares Foundation. An organization that provides free swim lessons to homeless, foster, and impoverished children who do not normally have access to them.

Help Reduce the Local Drowning Rate!

This event is not only to help fundraise money to help impoverished children have access to swimming lessons, but it is also to spread water safety awareness. Drowning is the nation’s number one killer of children under the age of 5 and it’s the second leading cause of death from unintentional injuries for ages 1 to 14. Drowning can happen in bathtubs, mop buckets, toilets, and even in standing water as shallow as 2 inches. They happen year round!

With your assistance, we all can make a difference in a child’s life by educating the public about the importance of adult supervision around all bodies of water, multiple barriers around pools and spas, as well as classes for children and adults. Active adult supervision is the key to preventing these senseless tragedies. We need parents to realize that it can “happen to them” and carry the message forward.

Swim Lessons Offered

Waterworks Aquatics three enclosed pools that provide warmth, sun protection and are heated to a comfortable temperature. We also feature a 6 lane Junior Olympic-size outdoor pool, heated to 84-86 degrees year round. They provide Private, Semi-Private, Group, Parent and Me, Adult and Stroke Clinic swim classes. Waterworks also offers youth swim teams, summer swim camps, lap swimming, water aerobics, recreation swim, and a venue for birthday parties as well as facilitating aquatic therapy.

“The teaching methodology at Waterworks Aquatics is what differentiates us from other swim schools,” said Jon Alpert, founder of Waterworks Aquatics. “We utilize an original instructional philosophy of teaching children to roll to their back for a breath rather than lifting their heads to breathe, which allows children as young as 18 months the capability to swim across the pool. The other key component is the use of a specialized muscle memory teaching technique, where students are taught stroke technique at a very young age.” With a commitment to “Learning it the Right Way, Right from the Beginning”, Waterworks Aquatics has been voted the Best Swim School in Orange County for eight consecutive years by the readers of Parenting OC Magazine.
