Founded in Arizona in 1991, Aqua-Tots Swim Schools has built a reputation as a knowledgeable swim instruction company that fosters a safe and fun environment for children and parents. Aqua-Tots Swim Schools designed and developed an indoor facility in 2005 in Arizona to serve families in the Phoenix metropolitan area year-round. After retaining a large client base for years, Aqua-Tots created a franchise business model to expand their presence across the United States. In 2017 over 3,000,000 swim lessons were taught nationwide, representing tens of thousands of families.
Aqua-Tots puts safety first in their state-of-the-art facilities nationwide by offering small class sizes with quality instructors teaching the comprehensive curriculum.
The schools have various classes for children focusing on specific techniques at each swim level.
“You’re working with someone who is always knowledgeable, and we can make changes at any time. If something comes up, or we want to make adjustments, Nextiva has always been there to guide us in the right direction on how to get things solved.”
Mike Priest is a Franchise President and Owner of ten Aqua-Tots locations in Arizona, Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Kansas.
“I interact a lot with the corporate staff (in Arizona). I am in close proximity to hear what’s going on in the corporate world, as part of their role is to provide support to the franchise owners,” Priest said.
“I share the field perspective with them, and how their support is being perceived, which is a cooperative process.”
