CLASS SIZE

Our group classes are capped at 4 students, with the exception of Mini Gizmo, Pre Gizmo Jr., and Mighty Mechanics.  Mini Gizmo This allows our instructors to effectively spend quality time with each student in the class, ensuring that progress is continually made.

SKILLS TAUGHT / PROGRESSION

Machine Swim School & SwimLabs is a competitive-based swim school. This means that while we are focused on ensuring that each and every student is water safe, we strive to eventually teach students each of the four competitive strokes.

SCHEDULING

At Machine Swim School we always have a rolling start date, meaning you can enroll your swimmer at any point.  We believe in a monthly system versus a session-based program to ensure the continual growth and development of each student.  Once a student has mastered the skills of their level, they will immediately be promoted.


Because our group lessons are in high demand, you will be signed up for AutoPay, which reserves your child’s spot indefinitely until you notify us otherwise.  Please call 703-281-2104 to schedule.
