ACE is now a Starfish Aquatics Institute Training Center!

ACE Aquatic Club is pleased to announce its partnership with the Starfish Aquatics Institute (SAI), having recently been accepted as a Training Center. SAI is one of the largest lifeguard, swim instructor and pool operator certifying agencies in the United States.  In partnership with Human Kinetics, SAI offers state-of-the-art training courses and also provides risk management services to the aquatic industry.

“We are very proud to have the ACE Aquatic Club join the SAI family,” said Leslie Donavan, President of SAI.  “We believe our focus on professionalism and accountability gives our Training Centers the opportunity to lead the industry in effective and safe programming.”

Founded by Jill White, a renowned aquatics expert, SAI uses an integrated experiential approach to learning. All SAI training programs incorporate this innovative technique.

ACE will be using the Starfish Swimming® Instructor Certification program, and plans to announce new and exciting swim school offerings in the coming weeks as the program becomes ready to launch.

“The Starfish Swimming program is a total curriculum based on core competencies that are idea for any teaching situation,” said Donavan. “It is an effective swimming instruction system for all ages and abilities, from infant through swim team.”
