Led by a two-time olympian

Nim Shapira drowned when he was seven years old after accidentally falling into a pool at a birthday party. But instead of letting this traumatic experience create a fear of the water, he and his parents were determined to make him a better swimmer. Nim’s parents wanted him safer around water and enrolled him in swim lessons the next day. At age 11, Nim began competitively swimming and had his first international meet at 13. In 2008, at the age of 18, Nim made his first Olympic Games appearance in Beijing, and then his second Olympic Games appearance at the London Games in 2012. Among his swim accomplishments, Nim was also the Florida HS State Champion while swimming at The Bolles School and NCAA D1 Champion with The University of Arizona. Nim’s drowning experience shaped his life. Now, he shares his knowledge and passion for swimming with thousands of families at the swim schools he owns and operates.

“There are 10+ drownings in the U.S. every day. This is a personal experience for me. I want to help change these statistics and have more kids safer around water.”
