Compass Adds Homeschool Swim Lessons to Fall Line-Up

Starting in the fall, Compass will offer Homeschool Swim Lessons! No, we are not building a pool this summer! Instead, we have partnered with the Reston YMCA to make weekday morning homeschool swim lessons available.

The YMCA is a clean, bright modern facility with a 6-lane, 25 yard pool, located just 0.9 miles (3 minutes) from Compass on Sunset Hills Road. Offering swimming lessons will help homeschool families plan many of their weekly activities and classes all in one, central location. No need to go driving all over northern Virginia.

Lessons are offered on Tuesdays or Thursdays at 3 age levels: “Sunfish” (ages 3.5-5), “Stingrays” (ages 6-8, grades 1-3), and “Sharks” (ages 9-12, grades 4-6) and 2 ability levels: Beginners and Intermediate. Class sizes are small with just 3-5 children per instructor. Contact us if you are looking for lessons for an older child or a more advanced level. If there is enough interest, the YMCA can add instructors in concurrent time slots. All lessons are 40 minutes long to allow students to dry off, change clothes, and return to the Compass learning center for additional classes.

The Compass Fall Class Schedule has been updated to show the swimming lessons. Registration opens for swim lessons along with all other fall classes this week on Tuesday, May 17 at 6:00 am.
