Aqua Academy-OCRI Entrepreneurship Centre

Sash Yasinski is the owner of Aqua Academy, a local business situated in Stittsville, Ontario. It offers an exclusive program that provides private and semi-private swimming lessons in the comfort of an outdoor backyard pool setting. The swimming lessons target children ages 3-14, following the Lifesaving Society swim program. Aqua Academy provides high-quality swim instruction, catering to the needs of each individual participant.  Health and wellness are important factors that contribute to the inspiration of the business, and are also incorporated into the swim programs.  Aqua Academy takes into consideration the time constraints many parents have with their career and will seek to schedule lessons based on the needs of the family.  It offers off-location private swim lessons where the instructor travels to the designated household to teach swimming in the comfort of the client’s home.

Learning how to swim is an excellent skill to have because most outdoor recreational activities take place around or near a body of water.  Aqua Academy strives to promote and teach the basic skills of swimming and strokes so individuals of all ages can feel more comfortable around a pool, lake or ocean environments. 

The Lifesaving Society Swim to Survive Position Statement explains, " the acquisition of basic swimming ability is a fundamental requirement in any meaningful attempt to eliminate drowning in Canada".  As an affiliate member of the Lifesaving Society, Aqua Academy follows the Swim for Life program.

In addition to swimming lessons, Aqua Academy offers small group aquafit for adults interested in building their fitness using the water.

Aqua Academy offers private and semi-private swimming lessons as well as small group aquafitness.

Private swimming lessons include one-on-one instruction with water expert, Sasha Yasinski.  One session includes eight classes, over the span of two weeks occurring Monday through Thursday.  Each lesson is half an hour in length with longer intervals available. Semi-private swimming lessons are designed for two participants with the same skill level.  A semi-private session includes eight classes, over the span of two weeks occurring Monday though Thursday.  Each lesson is half an hour in length.  One-hour private lessons are also an option should your child require a refresher on their swimming skills before heading to the cottage or going on vacation.  This type of lesson can take place on location at Aqua Academy or at your own pool.  One-hour private lessons are scheduled and paid for individually and are offered on Fridays and Saturdays.

Aquafitness is a one hour water aerobics class which incorporates water resistance as well as rebound movements.  It is a great way to stay fit, look toned and feel good in a bathing suit.  Aquafitness is great for anyone, all ages, shapes and sizes!  Get a group of friends together and register for a class or session.  Aquafit classes occur three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings and evenings.

Aqua Academy also offers aquafitness programs for adults of all fitness levels. There are three classes for adults to attend; Aquajog (high-intensity), moderate-intensity with yoga (strength, cardio and flexibility) and low-intensity (light water resistance training). 

Aqua Academy targets families who are looking for private swimming lessons and fitness programs within their residential area. The programs are designed to attract children and adults who enjoy learning in the outdoors and are local residents. Sasha can be reached at, 613-793-9231, or 46 Beechfern Drive, Stittsville, ON, K2S 1E3
