Few can make such a claim, but those who reach that pinnacle set a standard toward which all can strive, and the industry is made better for it.

Winners of the third annual Best of Aquatics Awards exemplify such excellence. From innovative lifeguarding classes to creative children’s programming, these aquatics facilities exhibit imagination, good planning and outstanding staffs.

As our panel of judges discovered, the high caliber of entries made final selections difficult. But, ultimately, they settled upon the best programs in five categories. Aquatics International is proud to recognize the personnel and facilities for their exceptional programming, training and safety procedures.

Note: This year, we are not presenting a winner in the Best Emergency Action Plan category. We did not receive enough entries in that category to warrant presentation of an award. If you think your facility is worthy of recognition, we would love to hear from you next year.
