Michael & Jennifer Lilintahl, Co-Owners

Michael and Jennifer Lilintahl are the proud owners of SafeSplash Swim School Friendship Heights, Columbia Heights and Rockville Pike. They opened their first swim school in 2017 and are honored to be part of the swimming journey for thousands of local families. Michael started swimming at the age of 5, went to college on a full swimming scholarship, and represented his native Venezuela in the 1996 Olympics. Jennifer learned to swim before she learned to walk and started swimming competitively at the age of 5. Jennifer worked for many years in politics, including on the Hill and in the White House. Michael and Jennifer live in Montgomery County and are the parents of two young daughters, Anabel and Sasha, who you will often see joining them at the pool and in lessons.


I started teaching when I was 16

Swimming clears my mind

I love going to the beach every summer

Ms. Jenny Deck Manager

I find it incredibly rewarding to work at SafeSplash and assist our students in developing water confidence while imparting a valuable life skill.

Among various swim strokes, I particularly favor the backstroke.

I decided to become a swim instructor because it's super rewarding to teach others such an important skill and help them feel confident in the water!

I teach kids from beginner 1 to Advanced 2.
I teach classes on Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sunday’s and like to incorporate fun games like eye spy, ring catching, and swimming on the mat.

Ms. Nathalia Instructor

I love seeing a student I’ve personally worked with since their first class learn to swim

I've enjoyed swimming since I was young so I thought teaching the sport I love to other people would be a good fit for me.

I teach younger kids and preteens on Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

I  like to incorporate more ice breakers and get to know me games.

Ms. Jazzy Instructor

I really love when you get a student who’s petrified of the water and you get to see them
swim their first stroke all by themselves

I enjoy backstroke, it’s super peaceful to just float in the water

Teaching and working with kids is always super fun and interesting. I teach ParentTot classes, Beginner 1 - Intermediate 1

I teach classes on Tuesday’s, Thursday’s, Saturday’s and Sunday’s

Whenever a student is tired or drained from swimming, I like to take a break and play
some games while they get their energy back

Ms. Samantha Instructor

I love interacting with the kids and having great conversations with them

I've had prior experience coaching youth track, and gave swimming a shot and I really
love it!

I teach 3-8 year old's, B1, B2 and B3 levels on Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays

Ms. Anna Instructor

My favorite thing about working at SafeSplash is being able to engage with kids who love the water just as much as I do.

I love teaching and swimming, what better jobs would that be than a swim instructor

I teach levels 1-3; ages 4-9 on Saturday & Sunday’s

When kids are afraid to do certain training, I always try & reassure them that I'm here to hold their hand and catch them whenever they need!
