Frequently Asked Questions

Why Aloha Aquatics?

Aloha Aquatics was established in Las Vegas in 2008 and has always remained a family owned business. Our owners are on site, residents of this community, love our city and the families that live here. Swimming is our passion and we have been part of the swim community for decades.

Our mission is to not just teach all kids to be competent, strong swimmers and to be water safe, but to also have fun and love this lifelong skill by teaching in a family friendly, non intimidating and loving environment. Aloha Aquatics you will not find rigid levels and checklist teaching, but rather lessons that are constantly adapted and structured around the fluid development of every swimmer.

Most of our families have been with us for years, we have a very low student turnover and normally have a waitlist for new students.  We know all our families and kids by name and appreciate them entrusting us to teach them. You will never be just a number at our school.

Our low ratios and offering the most experienced swim instructors keeps our families happy and our swimmers progressing!

Our pool is indoors, saltwater and maintained at a comfortable 90 degrees year round. No chattering teeth or shivers at our swim school!

What makes Aloha Aquatics different?

Thats easy! It’s our Instructors! Our staff have competitive swim backgrounds, teaching experience, love kids and are enthusiastic about what they do! 

We require our entire staff to have current CPR, First Aid & AED , Red Cross WSI and Lifeguard Certifications. In addition, they receive a minimum of 160 hours (this is 4 times more than the national average) of instructional training shadowing one of our lead instructors in teaching our methodology. They also earn additional certifications through online and in classroom training throughout the year. We truly believe our instructors are some of the most giving, loving, thoughtful, and talented people around!

What ages can enroll?

We offer lessons for ages 12 months and beyond. Unlike other activities or sports, it is never too early or too late to start learning to swim! Learning to swim benefits you at any age, regardless of when you start.

How do I enroll?

Enrollment is easy! Just browse our class schedule using the age fiters to find the right class, create an account, and enroll!

How much does it cost?

Prices are calculated per student based on a yearly enrollment and is auto-billed monthly. Holidays and Scheduled Facility Closures are inclusive of your monthly tuition so you will be billed the same every month.

Please contact us for pricing and availability for Group lessons,  Private Swim Lessons, Semi- Private Lessons, Water Aerobics, or if your child has Special Needs.

**There is $25 non-refundable per student registration/anniversary fee that will be charged during the initial enrollment and each year thereafter on the month of the initial start date.

What should I bring on my first day?

Please bring a towel, appropriate swim attire (no street clothes or anything cotton is permitted in the pool), goggles (optional- please make sure they are the appropriate size for your child), a reusable water bottle, longer hair should be tied up or in a swim cap. Don’t forget a big smile!

Every child 3 and under is REQUIRED to wear a REUSABLE swim diaper regardless if they are potty trained. The reusable/washable swim diaper must fit snug around the legs and waist.
Disposable swim diapers ( lil swimmers, splashers, etc) can be worn underneath the REQUIRED REUSABLE diaper but not instead of.

How long will it take for my child to  learn to swim?

It depends on if your child loves the water or is fearful to get in, their desire to learn, and how they learn. Just like in other activities and developmental stages, different children progress at different rates. It also depends on what your goals are for them: is it just to get them water safe, or is it to be ready for the swim team? The success in learning how to swim is consistency in attendance and we are therefore a year-round school.

What if I miss a class?

Regular attendance is encouraged but not required at our school. You always have the option of stopping by the office to see if we can find a better permanent day/ time that works with your busy schedule. Tuition is to reserve a timeslot whether the child attends or not.

If your child is sick we must have 24 hour notice to receive a makeup class. We thank all families in advance for participating in giving proper advance notice. Limit is 1 per month.

Unfortunately due to scheduling and staffing we do not offer makeup lessons for same day sick calls or no shows. 

What if I want to end enrollment?

We understand situations arise where you may need to stop your enrollment. 

If you wish to withdraw at the end of any given month a written withdrawal notice form must be completed by the 15th of the month to be withdrawn for the next calendar month. If a student withdraws from classes prior to the last class of the month, no refund will be provided for the unused tuition between the withdrawal date and the end of the month.
