Ensuring you and your loved ones know how to swim is an important layer of defense against drowning. Choosing the right DMV swim school can be challenging, though. Who offers the right instructors, locations, and approach to swim lessons? If you’re currently looking for a potential swim school, here’s why to add WeAquatics to your short list.

4 Reasons to Choose WeAquatics for Your Maryland, DC, or Northern Virginia Swim Lessons

With many swim schools throughout the DMV, here are the top reasons to trust WeAquatics with swim lessons for you or your family.

1. Voted a 2021 Washington Parent Pick Winner

WeAquatics is rated as one of the safest and most knowledgeable swim programs in the DMV area.

In 2021, we were voted as the Washington Parent Pick winner in the sports and recreation camp category. 

2. Stellar Staff of Swim Instructors

Especially when it comes to private swim lessons, the coach matters. It’s why WeAquatics requires so much of our swim instructors.

This includes all the obvious characteristics:

    • Strong personal background in swimming
    • Experience working in a teaching, coaching, or mentorship role
    • Local to the Maryland; Northern Virginia; or Washington, DC, region

When vetting potential swim instructors, though, WeAquatics goes far beyond the obvious. We also look for someone who is:

    • Communicative
    • Nurturing
    • Empathetic
    • Relationship-minded
    • Looking to make a difference in the community and their students’ lives

3. Private Virginia, Washington, DC and Maryland Swim Lessons

Whether you’re interested in infant swimming classes or general swim lessons (serving children to adults), WeAquatics primarily offers private, one-on-one lessons.

This provides many benefits to our swim students:

  • Lessons go at the student’s pace. There’s no need to juggle multiple students at different swimming levels. Every aspect of the lesson can meet the student where he or she is.
  • Personalized and individualized attention to swimming technique and form can help the student learn more effectively and efficiently.
  • One-on-one swim sessions alleviate any pressure or embarrassment the student might otherwise feel in a group lesson setting.

4. Plenty of Locations across Maryland; Northern Virginia; and Washington, DC

Between school, work, family, and life in general adding anything to your schedule can be challenging. Swim lessons are no exception.
