Olympian-led Swim School to Open in Fleming Island Sixth Location Coming January 2024

Fleming PR - Outdoor

Fleming Island, FL (April 25, 2023) – AQUAfin, Jacksonville’s premiere swim school led by two-time Olympian Nimrod Shapira Bar-Or, announces the opening of a new location in Fleming Island in January 2024. With a minimum of 10 drownings occurring in the U.S. each day, this facility will not only bring more than 30 jobs to the community but will also provide a family-friendly environment to teach countless children how to be safer around the water. The Fleming Island location will be the 6th brick-and-mortar location AQUAfin has opened since coming to NE Florida.

The new location is the biggest swim school AQUAfin has built to date, with a 12,000 square feet building. Renovations and constructions for the new location have started this week and will be done by the end of 2023. The state-of-the-art facility will have multiple heated indoor pools and a high-quality purification system to provide year-round lessons, seven days a week, rain or shine. Lessons are progress-based starting with a 1-instructor-to-4-student ratio as young as two months old, with parent and tot classes (1:8).

“When I was seven years old, my uncle saved me from drowning” said Founder Nimrod Shapira Bar-Or. “The statistics for drowning in the U.S. are overwhelmingly high, especially here in our sunshine state where we are surrounded by water. I want to play an active part in lowering these statistics and make our community a safer place to live in. As an Olympian, this is not just a job for me or my team, this is a life mission, and we are excited to come to Clay County.”

From now until December 2023, AQUAfin is offering a Pre-Opening Founders Special for the new school located at 2276 Village Square Pkwy, Fleming Island, FL 32003. The first 50 registrants will have their annual registration fee ($35) waived for the first year and will receive a free swimming cap and pair of goggles with their registration.
