Many people ask about starting swim lessons in the winter, and we remind them that now is the best time to start their journey toward safe and confident swimming before summer. -Jesse Rhodenbaugh, Franchise Owner

Aqua-Tots Swim Schools, the largest international swim school franchise, announces the opening of their 130th worldwide location in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Located at 5290 Roswell Rd. at the intersection of Roswell and Mt. Paran Roads, Aqua-Tots Sandy Springs opened to the community on Monday, December 5, 2022.

Aqua-Tots Sandy Springs is the eighth Atlanta-area school and the thirteenth location for business partners, Andrew George, Jesse Rhodenbaugh and Tommy Fisher, who also own schools in North Carolina and Virginia. Upon opening the state-of-the-art 6,300 square foot facility, the team at Aqua-Tots will be ready to serve families in the Atlanta, Sandy Springs and Buckhead communities.

“We’ve always loved the families of Atlanta, and our new location in Sandy Springs gives us an opportunity to reach even more children with lifesaving swim lessons,” said Rhodenbaugh. “Many people ask about starting swim lessons in the winter, and we remind them that now is the best time to start their journey toward safe and confident swimming before summer.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the leading cause of unintentional, injury-related death in children one to four years old. Drowning prevention education is vital year-round as 69% of children were not expected to be in or near a pool at the time of a drowning incident.

The National Institutes of Health also states that participation in formal swim lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% among children ages one to four years, and the Aqua-Tots Swim Journey is comprised of eight levels of proven curriculum that is trusted all over the world to teach more than five million swim lessons every year.

Aqua-Tots Sandy Springs is now open Monday through Saturday, and for a limited time, families can lock in founder’s pricing for as long as they are enrolled in lessons (a savings of $20/month). Families can reserve a spot in small group (4:1 ratio), semi-private (2:1 ratio) or private (1:1 ratio) lessons before classes fill up. Aqua-Tots Sandy Springs also features the Special Needs Aquatic Program (S.N.A.P.), Fast Track and adult swim lessons.
