Waterworks Aquatics Irvine: Instructor Anthony

Instructor Anthony Interview


C: Thank you for agreeing to meet with me, Anthony.

A: You’re welcome!

C: When did you originally start swimming?

A: I started swimming when I was pretty young. I think I might have been five-years-old when I first started taking swimming lessons.

C: Were you learning the strokes or were you doggie-paddling.

A: I was probably doggie-paddling more than anything to be honest.

C: Oh don’t worry, so was I. Did you ever swim competitively?

A: Because of a knee injury, I was never swam competitively, but I have never had an issue swimming.

C: Wow! Sorry to hear about your knee. Did you have a favorite stroke?

A: I liked freestyle, but not butterfly. That stroke is really difficult and requires a lot of energy.

C: I can only imagine. Do you teach our younger swimmers or older swimmers?

A: I actually teach both, from about 2 years of age to 13.

C: Do you have any advice for some of our younger swimmers that are scared to get into the water?

A: Yeah, definitely! I would tell them just to think of the pool as a HUGE bathtub because it really IS a huge bathtub. I’d ask them if they take baths, then to just imagine that they are taking a bath in the pool. I know it sounds silly, but it’s true.

C: That’s not silly, that’s genius. Do you have any hobbies outside of the water?

A: Well, I love to surf and that’s in the water, but outside of the water I like to play baseball and go snowboarding.

C: Nice, you like to stay active. What about videogames? Do you like videogames?

A: I do, but I don’t get a chance to play them that often. I like Call-of Duty.

C: What about your favorite food?

A: Carne Asada!

C: Yum! Your favorite Disney movie?

A: I love Tangled. Sometimes I watch my nieces and that is their favorite movie to watch with me.

C: That’s great! You must be great with children. Well, thank you so much for your time.

A: No problem!

Waterworks Aquatics Closing Early Memorial Day

Memorial Day Weekend!


Happy Memorial Weekend!

This long weekend is full of BBQs, beach days, and bonding – all things fun in the sun! Some of you even came in for lessons, so thank you! We love spending time with our customers, even on holidays.

During this time, we hope you are able to spend lots of time with family and friends eating good food and reminiscing about great Memorial Days past. We hope, too, that you take a moment to think of what this National Holiday is truly about: those fallen soldiers who gave their life for our freedom to spend this time with our loved ones. It is in their honor that, as a nation, we take Monday off from our normal duties to reflect on their service and remember what a blessing it is to get some fun in the sun.

This Monday, we are closing at 12 PM instead of our normal 8 PM time, so if you are scheduled for lessons after noon, they are postponed until next Monday. Instead maybe you can practice your skills in your neighborhood pool or go to a Memorial Day parade to support your local veterans!

Happy Memorial Day from Waterworks to you, and a special thank you to all of our soldiers, past and present.

Waterworks Aquatics 10 Year Anniversary Extravaganza

May 20, 2014

10 Year Anniversary Extravaganza!



Waterworks Aquatics, a premier Swim School and Aquatic Center is excited to announce its 10 Year Anniversary Extravaganza and share their milestone success with the entire community! This not just special, but MAGICAL event is scheduled to take place on Sunday, June 1st from 2:00pm to 5:00pm at Waterworks Aquatics in Irvine.

The celebratory doors at Waterworks Aquatics will be opening to the general public and will be shutting down all operations to host and accommodate this EPIC large scale event! The celebration will include bounce houses, dunk tanks, a petting zoo, face painting, balloon art, Disney entertainers, carnival games, a car show and many more exciting activities and attractions for all families to enjoy! Waterworks Aquatics is expecting to see over 1500 people, both young and old to come enjoy the festivities. Just when you think the list ends of exciting activities they have more! There will also be a fire engine on the premises for the children to tour!

California is one of the 10 states in which drowning is the leading cause of death for children under the age of 15. Waterworks Aquatics has made it their mission the past 10 years to spread awareness about water safety and educate thousands of families in the community to be safer in the water. They feel this would be a great opportunity to combine their 10 Year Anniversary with a Water Safety Day.  May is the nationally recognized month of water safety. Orange County Fire Authority will also be in attendance and Waterworks Aquatics is also looking to partner with both D.A.R.E and the Irvine Police Department to have a D.A.R.E vehicle and K-9 Unit present during the event!

Although this event will be free in admission, Waterworks Aquatics plans to take optional donations for the games and entertainment offered. All proceeds will go to the National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA). We asked owner, Jon Alpert, what hosting a large scale event like this means to him. He responded with, “raising water safety awareness is our ultimate goal and with it being our 10 year anniversary as well, we thought this would be the best way to inform our community about the importance of water safety.”

As summer is approaching quickly, this event will be the ultimate way to kick-off the season. Everyone in attendance will be able to enjoy free swim and pool games. Waterworks Aquatics will also be raffling off a free 10 lesson swim package to compliment the 10 Year Anniversary celebration.

For more information on this event please visit www.waterworksswim.com/Irvine or call 949.450.0777.

Turbo the Tiger-Shark looks forward to celebrating with you all!
