      Morgan Ross

      Morgan has been a swim instructor in Maryland and the DC metro area for the past 6 years. She gained extensive experience working with children with autism and other varying disabilities during her first 3 years coaching. Before that Morgan swam competitively for 10 years. In 2015 she began instructing alongside Kelly Rogers-Hale (Swimming with Kelly/Float First), who greatly enriched her knowledge in water safety and technical stroke work. Morgan has a passion for teaching water safety, coaching swimmers and sharing her love for the pool!

      PRIVATE LESSONS… 301-219-5993  and/or email swimmingwithkelly@gmail.com

      $45 for ½ hour lesson, offering lessons for beginners which incorporates safety skills to promote independence, as well as work on proper breathing and technique. Additionally, we offer lessons to further advance strokes break down technique for competitive swimming. Children who are 3 years old and potty-trained should only take a 20 minute individual lesson @ a cost of $30.


      The Beginner Class is for beginning swimmers, 4 or 5 year-olds, who are potty-trained and ready to put their faces in the water. The Advanced Beginner Class is for young children who are comfortable and can float/swim independently, but are not quite ready to join the CCRA Mini Rays/ Swim Team.  

      Small class sizes of up to no more than 4, or less than 2, children ensure more individual attention for your young child. The Beginner Class looks to help children feel comfortable in and under the water while the Advanced Beginner Class aims to help children learn independence and improve freestyle and backstroke.

      ****** Full groups will determine how many groups we will have at each level for each session.  In other words if there are not enough kids sign up we may only chose one specific time frame for each of the two different levels.


      ****** Cost: Each group session is priced at $100 per child. Checks should be made out to Float First LLC. You may also pay using VENMO. Payment is due at the beginning of each session and is non-refundable so that we can encourage and give your child a chance to learn! 


      If we have inclement weather we will have a make-up day!


      Children should come prepared with their own goggles if they use them.  Please remember parents are not allowed in the lesson and preferably if they are in the water they should not be near the lesson group.  In my experience it is better to not have the parents hovering and engaging with the child during the group lesson.


      Where: Meet us by the shallow end of the big pool.
