Learn-to-Swim & Aquatics Classes

The goal of Reston Community Center's Learn to Swim Program is to prepare participants for a lifetime of water pleasure and to promote water safety. All classes are taught by certified Instructors. Each instructor has been trained and certified by the American Red Cross and has received ratings in Water Safety Instructor. Staff members are certified in CPR and further trained by the RCC Aquatic School. Small class sizes and modern curriculums create optimal learning for students. Reston Community Center offers a broad range of swimming classes for every skill level and every age group, including:

Private Swim Lessons

The RCC Terry L. Smith Aquatics Center offers private swim lessons for children and adults; class curriculum is tailored to the individual student and sessions are scheduled around the other uses of the pool, instructor availability and the participant’s schedule. Lessons are taught by RCC certified instructors in 30-minute increments of time. Please contact the Aquatics Service desk for more information or inquire about availability at 703-390-6150. Payment in full will be required prior to enrollment. Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance by calling the Aquatics Office.
