The St. Albans Swim Club 2014–2015

The St. Albans Swim Program has served the Washington community since 1963. Membership includes use of the beautiful indoor Joseph J. Lawrence Pool, located on the St. Albans School campus beside the Washington National Cathedral at 3551 Garfield Street, N.W., near the intersection of Garfield and Massachusetts Avenue. The Lawrence Pool is an attractive, fully tiled, six-lane, twenty-five yard, indoor facility in bright and comfortable surroundings. The temperature of the pool water and the room is maintained at 82° F.

The St. Albans Swim Club gives members and their guests use of the Lawrence Pool seven days a week, eleven months of the year, including all holidays except Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, and Easter. Memberships may be purchased for a 10-visit pass, monthly pass, or for the entire season, which runs from September 29, 2014, to September 7, 2015.

The St. Albans Swim Club is directed by Aquatics Director Robert J. Green, who is entering his 34th season at St. Albans. The head coach of the St. Albans and National Cathedral School varsity swim teams, Mr. Green has taught countless adults and children how to swim.

For information: contact Rob Green or Mark Lewis at 202-537-6462.
