10 Year Anniversary Extravaganza & Safety Day Recap


Waterworks Aquatics, a premier Swim School and Aquatic Center, hosted their 10 Year Anniversary and Water Safety Day event this past Sunday, June 1st. Waterworks Aquatics celebrated this event with a petting zoo, several large bounce houses, face painting, Disney Frozen princesses, balloon artists,  free swim, live music, carnival games, a dunk tank, and more! A mock drowning scenario was also organized by both Waterworks Aquatics and the Orange County Fire Department which helped show how important the skill of swimming truly is. The mock drowning was extremely impactful by the hundreds of spectators with the presence of 2 ambulances and a Fire Engine assisting.  “Drowning is a risk that can never be eliminated. It can be managed by having someone in charge at all times watching the swimmer, securing the fence and doors to the pool, taking swim lessons and by having the parents CPR certified” said owner, Jon Alpert.

Waterworks Aquatics was extremely happy to open their doors for the entire community as an estimated 1,000 people were in attendance for the event. In celebration, Waterworks Aquatics also raffled off a 10 lesson swim package to 1 lucky attendee. With being in business for over 10 years, Waterworks Aquatics wanted this celebration to be magical and special for all the families and friends that were in attendance. Owner, Jon Alpert said, “We wanted this event to be unlike anything else we have ever done and use our entire facility both inside and outside to accommodate all of the activities.”

As summer is approaching quickly, Waterworks Aquatics wanted this Anniversary Celebration and Water Safety Event to be the ultimate way to kick-off the summer. The event was an overall success in Waterworks Aquatics eyes as smiles were seen on everyone’s faces throughout the hot summer day.

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!

Everyone has a mother and we know they do so much, even when it goes unnoticed, so we wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all the moms out there.

For all the meals they’ve chopped up into tiny pieces, all the hours of sleep they’ve sacrificed on those early morning wake-up calls, and for all the love they give us unconditionally, moms truly are the best.

We even had moms bringing their kids in for lessons today! So we took some photos of them and their kids, which you can check out below.

Thanks Moms, Grandmas, and Aunties! We don’t know where we’d be without you! Have a relaxing and fun day full of LOVE. You’ve earned it!
