About us

Jonathon McCarthy, owner of AMI Swim School, has a vast background and love for swimming. At the age of 6, Jon was taught to swim by his father in their family pool. This built his confidence to compete successfully in swimming throughout high school. Then in 2008, he opened his first private swim lesson program called Aqua Motion in the very same pool he learned to swim.


Five years and over 3,000 private swim lessons later, Jon brought his program internationally to the country of Nepal. Drowning is a leading cause of accidental death for the children of Nepal. In 2014, Aqua Motion International taught drowning prevention education to over 2,000 children in Kathmandu.


Jon started AMI Swim School in 2016 with the mindset to create the perfect swim program. AMI Swim School lessons provide warm water pools, small class sizes and expert instructors to make sure your child becomes a proficient swimmer faster.
