Please see the schedule on pages 62 and 63 of the spring edition of Reston magazine.
When selecting classes please follow these guidelines:

Children often need to repeat levels several times and may regress if not enrolled in swim lessons year round.
Please select classes based on the skills listed in the level descriptions and know that we will make every effort to move the student to another class if the one selected is too advanced or too easy.
Classes are limited to five students and fill fast so please have alternate selections ready in case your first choice is sold out.

Water Test Day:
If you’re not sure what your child can do or if this is your first time registering for Group Swim Lessons please join us for a fun and quick evaluation of skills.
Saturday, May 3, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
Ridge Heights Pool 11400 Ridge Heights Road
Students are seen in the order they arrive and wait time is typically under 10 minutes. The water is heated but the air may be chilly – please bring plenty of towels.

Purchased in sets of four, 40-minute lessons, the private and semi-private lesson option allows for a custom schedule set up between instructor and client.

You must be paired with an instructor prior to paying for private/semi-private lessons. To be added to an interest list where our staff of certified instructors can find your information please contact our Swim Lesson Coordinator at or 703-435-6520.
