Meet the SafeSplash Swim School - Bethesda Team

One of the most important attributes that define us and the quality of service we provide is our team.  Every member of our team is hired because they have a unique set of experiences and skills that make them one of the best at what they do!  That’s why you’ll see our team using #IAmSafeSplash on posts they make on social media. Simply put, SafeSplash Swim School - Bethesda is defined by our people and our team is what drives the premium experience for you and your student.  We urge you to stop in and get to know us all.  We have a fantastic group of friendly faces that are truly the best and brightest from the communities of Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Kensington, Potomac, Silver Spring, and Northwest Washington, DC, as well as surrounding areas.

Each one of our swim instructors is certified to teach/coach once they have completed an extensive classroom and in-water training program, a series of instructor shadowing sessions, and in-water instruction testing. In addition, all instructors and staff are CPR certified.  All of our team members contribute to our parent’s blog, which features parenting and family resources, swimming tips, and personal experiences.  Reading their blog posts is a great way to learn more about the perspectives that each of our instructors brings to the pool.  Each instructor is unique and has a unique perspective on teaching our students, and all are the best in the industry!

Below are some of the biographies of our key instructors.  You’ll notice that all of us have a story and interesting ties to our neighborhood. Please don’t hesitate to stop by our school and get to know our staff, any time.

In addition to our team, we work hard to partner and support many other small business operators in our local community.  We believe that supporting local small business in our community is one of the ways we can help our community thrive.  Here are some of the small businesses that we have partnered with over the years.  Please join us in supporting them when you have a need for their services and make sure you mention you are part of the SafeSplash Bethesda family when you do!
