It’s never too late to learn how to swim. No matter how old you are, it’s possible to develop the swimming skills you need to feel safe and comfortable around water. Our adult swim school in Friendship Heights empowers you through the same skill progression taught to younger students, but with language and exercises tailored to adults. Whether you want to practice the basics, perfect your stroke, gain endurance, or learn the foundations of water safety, our Friendship Heights swim school has a fun and informative program designed to suit your needs.
From backyard pool parties with your kids to beach vacations with friends and family, life is full of opportunities to make memories in and around water. Adult swimming lessons equip you with the confidence and skills you need to join in on the fun, even if you’ve never felt comfortable being in the water. After a few lessons, you’ll feel empowered, not embarrassed or anxious.
Swim lessons can be a great fit for swimmers of all abilities, including adults who already have some experience with swimming and beginners who want to overcome their fear of water. Lessons can even help seasoned swimmers refine each stroke to improve their lap times, and they provide helpful coaching for any triathlete who wants to hone their swimming skills to increase speed, endurance and confidence during a triathlon.

Our small ParentTot classes are a great way for parents to bond and socialize with their kiddos while teaching vital water safety skills like breath control, floating and kicking. We also offer Toddler Transition classes for kiddos ages 18-36 months. Parents join their swimmers poolside until they are ready to transition to a small group class without a parent nearby. Both classes focus on foundational water safety skills as well as developing a comfort in the water, which are crucial in developing swimming skills.
We offer a variety of swim lesson programs for children of all ages and levels. Whether your child is just starting to get comfortable in the water or moving on to more advanced techniques we have you covered. Our progressive curriculum starts with foundational skills in beginner level classes and develops swimmers to be advanced swimmers.

We offer a variety of class levels from small group classes featuring semi-private and private lessons.
Our private swim lessons allow swimmers of all ages and levels to progress through our curriculum at their own pace with one of our certified swim instructors. Each 30 minute class will be customized around mastering the skills to become a better, stronger, safer swimmer. Private and semi-private lessons (two swimmers with one instructor) are great options if you are looking for more time focused on your individual swimmer or siblings wanting to be in the same class.
