I’m in my late 20s and want to learn swimming. Is it too late? If not, how can I go about it? Any recommendations for swimming lessons in DC?

YMCA!

There are lots of opportunities for swim lessons out there (private, group, etc.) - YMCA definitely has them but there are lots of community centers, etc. That’s what I’ve found so far as a fellow late 20s bad swimmer😂

I learnt swimming late in life (25+). Never too late. You just have to find adult swimming classes. I attended with a bunch of 30+ people. There were definitely some kids giggling when they passed by our class. 😅

If they giggle just invite them to be pollywogs with you. It’s all cool in the pool.

Not too late. YMCA for sure. And proud of you for getting out and trying something new!

I am in my late 30s and trying to learn swimming. Also trying to persuade my 60 year old mom to learn with me. We are doing it in the river though so that learning time window is short.

You could take some classes. I actually never took a formal class. I was just taught by my parents and then went to lots of camps where we swam and lifeguards showed us stuff.

Definitely not too late! Most indoor DC public pools offer adult swimming lessons for a surprisingly affordable price. Not sure what the situation is like right now with COVID though... In the past I know certain locations book up pretty quickly but if you're willing to camp out online when the next quarter enrollment drops you should be fine. Alternatively if you're willing to drive across the river, there is usually plenty of space in the ward 7/8 classes.

To all the post-9/11 veterans, it’s a somber day that unites us all in the reason we fought. It’s easy to forget - especially with the younger generation having 9/11 be a history lesson rather than something they lived through. The waters became muddy with two wars and politicians, but you all stepped up and did your duty. Thank you all for your service, it’s an honor whether we crossed paths or not.
