Carla Swim

Trust... in the Water

Welcome to Western Loudoun's Premier Swim School!

We are known for our incredible focus on results!

Whether you are here to become water safe, to learn strokes, or to get fast,

we get it done!

I specialize in the Neurodiverse who struggle to learn in regular lessons.  

My unique methodology is proven to help the most anxious, fearful, quirky people ages 3 to adult.  

Sam is an incredible coach and role model to his swimmers of all ages.  His focus is on low level to high level competitive swimmers who want to develop their strokes and learn the tips and tricks of race mechanics to be fast and strong in the water!

What makes us different? Why are we so full?
The Carla Swim Method redefines the swim lesson with a unique methodology built out of 40+ years of experience with all kinds of learners and functioners of all ages!  We have a powerful focus on results, but in a fun and easy way!
FAST PACED AND HIGHLY FOCUSED ON RESULTS
Not one second of your lesson is spent waiting on the side.  Our lessons are designed and executed for maximum progress and a ton of fun in every lesson.   We develop trusted relationships with a deep understanding of learning styles.  We don't force, but instead, co create each session offering swimmers a sense of confidence and trust that opens them up to pushing through those challenging comfort zones.  They learn how capable they are and this carries over into other areas of their life.  Our work together inspires our swimmers to their best and most confident selves.
 
SENSORY/ANXIOUS/DIFFERENTLY BEHAVED
might have a diagnosis like ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, or Anxiety or  you might just be really sensitive and scared.  Many of our students come from other schools where their child was just not learning or had a scary incident and stopped making progress.  Environment matters, and to this population, it matters a lot!   We offer a private pool and an outdoor, quiet ,safe space. private instruction so that you can be focused and learn your way. We can go as fast or as slow as necessary to keep you moving forward and feeling successful at your pace!but that doesn't really matter. 
Swim Fast with Sam - STROKE AND COMPETITIVE DEVELOPMENT
A hugely successful new offering last year where kids could strengthen their basic skills, or improve their strokes and race mechanics for competition!  Sam is a Nationally Ranked Swimmer and Virginia 4A State Champion in the 500 Free and 100 Back.  Small groups and private lessons to help you gain the skill and stamina to be a powerful swimmer for life!
PRIVATE SETTING OFFERS LESS DISTRACTIONS AND NO EMBARRASSMENT
Our private and quiet setting has calm water and no distractions or embarrassment, which is the perfect space  to be focused, and in which you can gain your confidence and skills!  It is helpful for those who are highly distracted or sensitive to noise, and is greatly preferred by adults who never learned to swim, because there is no embarrassment of being seen.  The joy of  overcoming a lifetime of fear translates to life confidence in many other areas as well.
