Floaties Swim School commemorates National Drowning Prevention Month as part of the Ribbon Cutting and official opening of its new swimming facility along with Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox, who is the honorary guest and will participate in the ceremony.

Floaties Swim School, a year-round indoor swimming school, commemorates National Drowning Prevention Month this May as part of the Ribbon Cutting and official opening of its new swimming facility located at 851 Showroom Place, Suite 102, Chula Vista, California, 91914. Chula Vista Mayor Cheryl Cox is the honorary guest and will participate in the ceremony taking place on May 16 at 10:00 a.m.

“With the summer months approaching, it’s important to remember that drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death for young children,” said Floaties co-founder, Mike Morrill. “May,
as National Drowning Prevention Month, helps us raise awareness for many aspects of water and pool safety. Living in Southern California, we firmly believe that every child should learn how to swim early in life,” he said.

Floaties provides swimming instruction for infants as young as three months, with parental participation. In addition to Infant Aquatics, core classes are designed for children 12 months and
older, and focus on developing confidence in and around the water. Pre-Strokes classes and Strokes Classes help children begin and develop techniques for learning the four major swim strokes. Classes range in price from a series of 6 lessons for $126 to a series of 12 lessons for $210 (not including a one-time registration fee of $25). The swimming complex also combines a playroom and party room for private events.

Floaties in Eastlake is the second swimming school founded by San Diego County residents, Mike and Karyn Morrill, who opened Floaties in Poway in 2006. Floaties’ instructors teach from a salt-water pool that remains at a comfortable 92 degrees.    

Hours of operation are: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m.– 1 p.m. Swimming lessons can be arranged by phone at 1-877-277-SWIM (7946) or at eastlake(at)floatiesswimschool(dot)com.
