Aqua-Tots Swim Schools Expanding into Alabama: Newest Location to Open in Birmingham’s Over the Mountain Area

The largest international swim school franchise coming to Hoover, Alabama, in September 2023 to offer year-round, indoor swim lessons for children

Birmingham, Ala., Aug. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aqua-Tots Swim Schools, the largest international swim school franchise, is thrilled to announce the opening of its newest location in Hoover, Alabama. This exciting expansion marks the first Aqua-Tots Swim Schools location in the state of Alabama and is set to open its doors in mid-September 2023.

Aqua-Tots Hoover will feature a state-of-the-art, 6,000 square foot indoor swim facility. With its convenient location in Birmingham’s Over the Mountain Area, the school will serve families throughout Jefferson and Shelby counties, providing them with year-round access to high-quality swim lessons and convenient make-up lessons.

Birmingham has always been known for its proximity to water, making it a popular destination for all types of outdoor activities. However, until now, the community has lacked a dedicated swim school that offers year-round lessons. Aqua-Tots Swim Schools exists to offer a solution that caters to the needs of the active families in the area, particularly those with young children.

"Our mission is profoundly simple—to save lives. Providing Birmingham families with year-round access to swim lessons in a purpose-built facility is an absolute game changer," said franchise owner, Dave Dunlap. "As a Birmingham native and parent myself, water safety has always been a priority for me. Aqua-Tots Hoover will provide a new level of accessibility for parents to champion water safety and education in a safe and fun environment for their children."

Swimming is a critical life skill, and early swim lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by up to 88%. Families who pre-enroll before September 18 will receive an additional day of lessons free for the first month. Aqua-Tots Hoover will offer the highly sought-after Parent & Tot swim classes for tots four to 30 months old, as well as small group (4:1 ratio), semi-private (2:1 ratio) and private (1:1 ratio) lessons.

With both part-time and full-time positions available, Aqua-Tots Hoover is always looking for motivated swim instructors and front desk staff. Those interested in joining the team can apply online at
