We have swimming programs to suit you and your child's age and abilities. If you are looking to acclimate your 6 month old to the water or have your child benefit from being involved in a swim team, or maybe you know an adult who wants to learn or improve their swim strokes, we offer a dynamic aquatics program.

Swim Lessons 

Please review the VSAG class prerequisites before registering for classes to ensure your child is signed up for the correct class. Please contact the Aquatics Program Specialist at (703) 435-6800 x2134 if you need any assistance or would like to schedule a free swim evaluation to help you determine which class will fit your needs best.

Looking to get certificated to be more involved in the aquatics field? We offer Red Cross Lifeguard Training and Water Safety Instructor courses.

Swim Team

The Herndon Commanders is our USA Swimming sanctioned swim team. The Commanders' nine-month program is dedicated to giving each swimmer the opportunity to achieve his/her person goals in an encouraging environment.

The Herndon Halibuts is our Herndon Swim League swim team. The Halibuts two month Summer program is a great introduction to swim team for those who have never tried it and is a great opportunity to keep swimming during the Summer and have fun for those with more experience.


The Design-a-Class program is available if you have been unable to be placed in a swim class of your choice and are free during the weekday afternoons from 1-3pm. Three to five swimmers are needed to schedule a group lesson on the day that fits your schedule.  Contact the Aquatic Services Manager at 703-435-6800 x2128 for more details.
