The Edsall Park Swim Club is looking forward to its 57th season beginning May 26. Our pool has two reserved lap lanes available at all times (except during swim team practice), a 13-foot deep diving area with a diving board, and a separate shallow pool for younger children and developing swimmers.

We’re excited to open our doors to faces old and new. Discounts (including for military families) are available for new members, and there is no waiting list. A limited number of shares are also available for purchase.

We have a Groupon sale going on for our new single and couple members. New families also get a great deal – $350 for the entire summer, a savings of more than $190 over regular memberships.

Members and their guests have access to a gazebo for events, basketball court, snack bar, playground, and picnic tables. Last year, we hosted several new events, such as movie night and some very popular food truck visits, and we’re looking forward to these events and more this summer.

Returning members will also be excited to find an improved bathhouse and a more inviting entrance. We are also planning Aqua Zumba and Pilates classes this summer.

Fun in the kiddie pool.
Swimmers ages 4-18 have the opportunity to join our Northern Virginia Swimming League Division 17 swim team, the Edsall Park Dolphins. Daily practices begin June 1, and kids age 5 and older have the opportunity to swim at all A meets. There’s no better way to learn how to swim than to practice every day!

Not interested in the team, but still want to learn how to swim? We have private and group lessons with CPR-certified, well-trained, and fun staff.

There’s something for families of all shapes and sizes at EPSC, from swim team to lap lanes,
cookouts to parties.
