The Herndon Community Center has swimming programs to suit you and your child's age and abilities. If you are looking to acclimate your 6-month-old to the water or have your child benefit from being involved in a swim team, or maybe you know an adult who wants to learn or improve their swim strokes, we offer a dynamic aquatics program.

Swim Lessons 

Please review the VSAG class prerequisites before registering for classes to ensure your child is signed up for the correct class. Please contact the Aquatics Program Specialist at (703) 435-6800 x2134 if you need any assistance or would like to schedule a free swim evaluation to help you determine which class will fit your needs best.

Looking to get certificated to be more involved in the aquatics field? We offer Red Cross Lifeguard Training and Water Safety Instructor courses.

Pool Usage

Our Fall 2018 pool lane usage can be found here. Beginning on November 5, the pool lane schedule changes to accommodate the high school swim schedule. The Fall/Winter lane schedule can be found here.

Revised versions of the lane chart will be published as changes in the pool schedule occur. Please remember that scheduled activities have priority for usage of pool space.


Annually an Aqua Egg Hunt is held in the pool. Children will collect as many floating and sinking eggs as possible in the time allowed. Everyone will receive a prize!

Swim Team

The Herndon Commanders is our USA Swimming sanctioned swim team. The Commanders' nine-month program is dedicated to giving each swimmer the opportunity to achieve his/her personal goals in an encouraging environment.

The Herndon Halibuts is our Herndon Swim League swim team. The Halibuts two month Summer program is a great introduction to swim team for those who have never tried it and is a great opportunity to keep swimming during the Summer and have fun for those with more experience.

Masters Swim Team 

Masters Team - The Herndon Aquatic Masters (HAM) takes place on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays 8:30-9:30pm from September through May. Join us for a great work out! Online registration will be available for the Fall session (206630.10). Drop in rates are also available.
