Olympian-led Swim School to Open in Ponte Vedra AQUAfin’s Seventh Location Coming January 2024

AQUAfin Swim School, NE Florida premiere swim school led by two-time Olympian Nimrod Shapira Bar-Or, announces the opening of a new location in Ponte Vedra in January 2024. The new location was acquired from Jacksonville Academy of Gymnastics and is located in the Nocatee area at 43 Hudson Way, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32081. 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 Ponte Vedra location will be the seventh brick-and-mortar location AQUAfin has opened since coming to NE Florida in 2018.

The new location is one of the biggest swim schools AQUAfin has built to date, with a 10,000 square-foot building. Renovations and construction for the new location are expected to be completed by the end of 2023. The state-of-the-art facility will have a heated indoor pool and a high-quality purification system to provide year-round lessons, seven days a week, rain or shine. Lessons are progress-based starting as young as two months old with Parent and Infant classes and a 1:8 (teacher/participant) ratio. Group levels also enjoy progress-based lessons with a 1:4 coach/swimmer ratio. Classes are led by trained instructors in a child friendly environment using a research based philosophy called the F.I.N. Swim Method, a proprietary teaching method to AQUAfin which offers a positive learning experience through its progression based levels.

“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 the 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. 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 43 Hudson Way, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL 32081. The first 50 registrants will have their annual registration fee ($35) waived for the first year and will receive a free.
