Family Swim Thru Life

Come enjoy the 91-degree waters of TDSS with your family! The best way to Swim Thru Life is to jump in with your family by your side! We are excited to offer this opportunity for you to get in the water with your children for some fun, relaxation and to work on the skills that they are being taught in their weekly classes.

Family Swim Thru Life is also open to you even if you are not a current customer. We welcome everyone to come in and check out the facility, warm water, and a friendly environment!

Don’t miss our February Family Swim Event at both school locations!  Please join us at Tom Dolan Swim School Dulles and Falls Church on Friday, February 21st from 6-8 PM for our Valentine Family Swim.  Bring your suits and enjoy our warm water and a fun evening swimming with your family.  We love having you Swim Thru Life with us!

For all Family Swims, register by filling out the form at the bottom of this page, call us or stop by the front desk.  For our Friday night Family Swim, we understand family scheduling can be difficult so registration is not required but for estimating customer interest and staffing purposes, we prefer that you register.  Thanks!


When is it? We offer multiple family swims each month. The days and times may vary, so please check with our staff or the Events Page for further information.

Why should I bring my family? Why not?! This is a great time to bond with your child and reinforce the safety and technical skills that they are being taught in their class. For new families who are not currently enrolled in lessons, this is a perfect opportunity to enjoy our warm, shallow water pools and learn about the school.

How do I sign up? You can sign up online by filling out the form located at the bottom of this page.  You can also sign up at the school either by phone at 703-433-2020 for Dulles, 571-933-8944 for Falls church or in person. Space is limited so we recommend that you do not wait until the last minute.  However, we always welcome walk-ins!

How much does it cost? The cost is $5 per person with a $20 maximum per family.

*TDSS will provide a lifeguard as well as instructors who will be in the pool helping out with any tips or questions you may have. Please keep in mind that our instructors will not be running formal lessons but are more than happy to discuss class-specific topics.

*Please note that for safety reasons parents MUST be in the water with their children and not just in the building or on the pool deck.

*TDSS reserves the right to cancel a Family Swim if a minimum number of customers are not present.
