Adventures of Turbo
By: Beau B.
On a clear ocean day
Turbo swam with Sammy the sting ray.
To the reef they would go
Not knowing what they would find below.
As they rode the currents their eyes were caught
with something shiny that captured their thought.
What is that? Turbo said in wonder
I must go and see what lies down yonder!
Uncovering what was beneath the sand
Turbo couldn’t believe what was in his hands
A secret treasure chest filled with pearls
having different colors and swirls!
What shall we do with our discovery?
We will bring it for all the others to see!
Sharing such beauty they found to be
hidden once but now for all to see.

Swimming Tips/Advice from one of Pasadena’s Senior Swim Instructors Matt!! Lets see what Matt has to say, shall we?
“The most common thing that I see kids doing in the water is lifting their head up. It is very important to keep your eyes down and look at the bottom of the pool regardless of the stroke. Improper head position causes the swimmer to float several inches below the surface of the water making it difficult to get arms out of the water or breathe.”
Thanks Matt for the advice!

Waterworks has really grown and matured over the past few years and Waterworks Aquatics owner Jon Alpert has done a great job building a strong foundation in Irvine which has spread to now 7 total locations across California. It all started in Irvine California in 2004 and 6 years later Waterworks made its first expansion move to Beverly Hills. From 2011 to 2013 Waterworks has expanded to Carlsbad, Sierra Madre, Huntington Beach, and Pasadena bringing in thousands of new clients and still growing. The newest addition to the Waterworks family is *drumroll*….. SAN JOSE! Yes, Waterworks has broken past the SoCal boundary and has gone up to San Jose! It is currently in construction and it contains two pools: a teaching pool with an expanded play area, and a lap pool, both indoor and heated just the way you like it! It is due to open mid-April and the new staff is preparing for all the new clients that will be eager to check out this beautiful new building. Here are some pictures of the progress and the staff awaiting the completion!
