Exciting news: Tom Dolan Swim School’s new Falls Church location is officially open! We kicked off our first classes in the facility at the end of February, offering swim lessons at all levels for babies, toddlers, young children, older kids and adults.
We’re hosting a free community grand opening event, and all are welcome to attend. Join us at the new school in the Willston II Shopping Center on March 10 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Bring your family and your swimsuits, and explore our beautiful purpose-built swim facility, which provides:
- Multiple pools specifically designed for teaching children how to swim (with warm water, shallow depths and custom teaching ledges to stand on)
- Sound-absorbing wall panels to minimize loud noises and echoes
- Comfortable viewing rooms for parents to relax and watch lessons
- Facilities such as heated on-deck showers and family-friendly changing rooms
The grand opening event will feature fun activities for families, including:
- Family Swim with pool games
- Face painting, arts and crafts, and balloon animals
- Water safety tips from TDSS instructors
- Meeting Tom Dolan, getting an autographed photo from him, and trying on his Olympic gold and silver medals
“We are so excited to welcome the community to our Falls Church location,” said Tom Dolan. “In just the first few weeks after opening, we’ve already received great feedback from our students and parents. We’re looking forward to seeing familiar and new faces at this grand opening event!”
