It's Meet Me, Monday! This is one of our FIN-tastic swim instructors, Bella! She was born in Orlando, Florida, and moved to Virginia in 2012. She is a competitive cheerleader. She's also bilingual! According to her friends and family, she is very energetic, fun to be around, and easy to get along with!

We are having a blast with the reopening of our lessons. We cannot thank our families and swimmers enough for diving back in with us. Thank you, Goldfish Swim School Families! 🧡

Socially-distanced swim lessons?! You bet! Call us to book your FREE trial class! (703) 665-7647

Bubbles has a handwashing song (to the tune of Row Your Boat)! Sing this 4 times in a row when you wash your hands! "Wash, wash, wash your hands, soap will make them clean! Scrub the germs 'till they fall off, germs go down the drain!"

Safety is our #1 priority at Goldfish Swim School. For the safety of our swimmers, families, and staff, please wear a mask in the facility. Thank you for your cooperation! If you have any questions you can email us at [email protected] or call us at (703)665-7647.

Safer. Stronger. Together.™

Since the beginning of June, we have been dedicated to making our swim lessons, facility and procedures a safe place for our families. We will continue to make safety our number one priority. Throughout your stay at Goldfish Swim School, please let us know if you have any feedback for us. Thank you for being a part of the Goldfish Swim Swim School Family!

Our lessons begin at 9:00AM, TODAY! Remember to check in with our greeter as our check-in kiosks are closed in order to minimize the use of commonly touched surfaces. See you shortly!

SENIOR SPOTLIGHT • CONGRATULATIONS RENEE! 🧡💙🎓 Renee is a FIN-tastic swim instructor and lifeguard!

Renee will be attending Virginia Tech this fall, majoring in political science. Her favorite high school experience was finding a great friend group and being able to have fun and make great memories with them.

Renee, why do you like working at Goldfish Swim School?
“I like working a Goldfish because the coworkers are great. I love working with kids, especially teaching them an important life skill.”

We are open and our smiles are HUGE!

Our July lessons will not be billed on July 1st. July billing will occur on July 12, 2020.

Goldfish Swim School - Ashburn remains SAFER. STRONGER. TOGETHER.™ And as we look forward to our reopening, we want to make sure that all of our members of our community are with us when we dive back in! So to welcome you to the pool, for a limited time we’re offering:
- Prepay for 3 months of lessons, get 1 month FREE (expires Friday, July 31, 2020)
- $25 credit added to your account when you refer a new family beginning Friday, June 12, 2020 (no limit on referrals)
- No additional membership fee for families who swam with us after March 1, 2020

We also wanted to take a moment to let you know that according to the CDC, there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread in pools, as disinfectants like chlorine kill the virus. We are proud to use top-of-the-line technology to make our own chlorine right here in the school!

We know you may have some initial concerns as we dip our toes back into daily life. To help reassure our community that we are continuing to make the safety of our guests and team our top priority, we are working closely with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention on our reopening plans, to ensure that we are continuing to provide the safest environment possible for our guests (see link just below). We are making adjustments to our class sizes, sanitation procedures and school policies to ensure that we maintain social distancing and abide by the health department’s recommendations.

https://www.goldfishswimschool.com/safer-stronger-together/

Until further notice, we are implementing the following:

Lesson Modifications:

- Lanes will be doubled in size with spaced markers for student placement
- No more than 6 classes in the pool - with lower levels swimming at opposite ends
- Group swim lesson capacity has been decreased from 4 students to 3 students
- Instructors will be wearing plastic face shields
- Side-by-side teaching modifications to minimize face to face instruction

***You WILL be contacted to confirm your lesson time. Also, please keep in mind that our capacity will be minimized, therefore our instructor availability has changed. We cannot guarantee your instructor will remain the same as before closure.***

Due to distancing procedures, only one parent/guardian is permitted in the facility. Parents with multiple swimmers are encouraged to pick the same lesson time for all swimmers, as children and siblings will not be permitted in the waiting area during the lesson. If you lack childcare, book separate class times, or have any other concerns regarding this matter, please email [email protected] as she will help you and discuss your options.

Cleanliness & Protective Protocols:

- Chairs, door handles, restrooms and the front desk will be sprayed with highly effective disinfectant in between class times
- Nightly cleaning of the facility including, mopping, sweeping, and vacuuming
- Lesson equipment will be sanitized in addition to the pool’s chlorine sanitation
- Touch-less check-in
- Acrylic barriers at the front desk
- No more than 18 kids and 18 parents permitted in the facility
- 18 chairs in the viewing area - spaced 6 feet apart
- Social distancing guidelines posted through the facility
- Floor stickers to guide families in the appropriate direction to ensure social distancing
- We ask that parents and guardians wear masks
- The greeter, front desk representatives and viewing-area staff will be wearing masks
- All instructors in the pool will be wearing plastic face shields
- Goggles will not be available to borrow, as we are minimizing shared and commonly touched surfaces
- No parent feedback time on the deck at the end of class to minimize the number of patrons on the pool deck - if you’d like feedback on your child’s progress, please let the front desk know
- Classes are beginning on the top and bottom or every hour; please promptly and safely exit the facility out the back door when your swimmer exits the pool. Please keep your child in safe proximity in the parking lot while walking around to the front.
- We will not be holding lessons on Fridays
- We are not holding Mini 1, Mini 2, Swim Force, Family Swim or Birthday Parties until further notice

Health Screening prior to entering the building:
- Upon your arrival, our greeter will ask you and your swimmer if you’re feeling healthy today
- Staff will be answering daily detailed health questions prior to teaching
- Staff temperature readings will be taken daily prior to their classes
- Customer temperatures will not be taken

Closed Amenities to Enforce Family and Staff Safety:

- Bathrooms will be emergency only - we encourage you to have your swimmers use the restroom prior to coming to swim class
- No showers or changing rooms
- No hair or swimsuit dryers
- No water fountain
- No coffee, balloons, Bubbles bath toys, and monthly prize handouts
- The Snack Shack is temporarily closed

“What would our trip to swim lessons look like?”

1. When you arrive for your lesson, please line up on the front sidewalk, where there will be distanced spots for you to stand. Please have your swimmer in their suit with their goggles, ready to hop in the pool, as our changing facilities are closed.
2. The Greeter outside the main entrance will call you up, ask how you’re feeling and check you in. The Greeter will give you your lane number.
3. When you walk in, please hold your child’s hand and find a chair with your child’s lane number. Classes will be called by lane number, starting with the closest swimmers to the door.
4. During your child’s lesson, please minimize your movement around the facility.
5. To limit a high patron number on the pool deck, we will not be hosting parent feedback. If you have any questions related to your child’s lesson or progress, please let the front desk know.
6. When the lesson concludes, the swimmers will exit the pool one swimmer and lane at a time. As your child walks to the door, please stand up and meet them with their towel.
7. You will exit through the back door and walk around to your vehicle. Please remember to watch for cars. Keep in mind that you may park along the side of the building, around the corner from Arthur Murray Dance Studio. This will have you directly in between the main entrance and back exit.

“If there are no changing rooms, what should we do with our wet swimmer(s)?”

There is no right or wrong answer to this question. Warmer temperatures will make this a more comfortable process. Here are some tips to consider:
- Bring 2 towels per swimmer: one towel could be utilized while exiting with your swimmer, while the other can be used to continue drying your swimmer when you arrive at your vehicle.
- Bring clothes to put over your child’s wet swimsuit as you get into the car.
- Place a towel, or fabric item to place over your child’s car seat.

Soon, we will be posting a video of our facility and lesson layout. The link to the video will be sent out via email, Facebook and Instagram. If you have any questions, concerns or considerations, please reach out to us at 703.665.7647 or email us at [email protected]. We’d love to hear from you!

Yes, things have changed. But our commitment to safety, your children, and our community will always remain the same. So, we ask you to join us as we dive back in. Together — through separation — we remained strong over these last few months. And now more than ever, we are committed to being Safer. Stronger. Together.™

Swim-cerely,

Our Story

NOW OPEN!

Goldfish Swim School – Ashburn is a state-of-the art swimming facility dedicated to teaching children as young as 4 months old.

Goldfish is much more than a swim school. You feel it the moment you walk in. Something different. It’s more than vibrant colors chosen to inspire kids. More than a curriculum crafted to not only teach kids to swim but also to build their character through guided play. More than a shiver-free pool heated to 90 degrees. There’s something more. Something unexpected. Something beyond typical. It’s passion.

Not just a passion for kids or a passion for swimming…it’s a special passion for changing – even saving – lives by teaching kids to swim and be safer in and around the water.

We use our holistic philosophy, The Science of SwimPlay®, to build life skills both in and out of the water using play-based learning in a fun and safe environment. In a class size of no more than 4 children to 1 swim instructor, children master the skills they need to be safer and confident in the water. Beginning as early as 4 months, children progress through a series of perpetual swimming lessons, graduating to higher levels of difficulty as swimming skills are mastered.

Goldfish also offers special events like parties, Family Swim, accelerated Jump Start Clinics and our Goldfish Swim Force Team, catered to swimmers who have completed the Goldfish Pro Level.

Goldfish Swim School – Ashburn is proud to help teach the children of the great community of Ashburn, VA how to swim and be safer in the water. We encourage you to stop by for a tour of our facilities. We guarantee you’ll love it at Goldfish!
