Greetings from the Marlin Family and Marlin School of Swimming,

The world has seen some big changes over this last year and we are hopeful as we advance into a new era. With this said, we want to take the time to thank all of our swim families for your continued support over the years and announce that regrettably we will be putting lessons on hold this summer with plans to reopen in a new location in the future.

We are so appreciative for the decades of service we have been able to provide our community: 63 years providing connections and skills for a lifetime, 3+ generations of instructors and clients alike—we at Marlin School of Swimming (Chitty’s Swimland) are honored to have been the local standard for quality swim lessons. We are so grateful for the amazing and supportive families that have made our pool deck into a space for the connection we all have grown even more thankful for this past year.

Though we are pressing pause on business as usual for now, in the future we want to continue this legacy by preparing a new location for the future home of Marlin School of Swimming in The Tri-Cities where we plan to expand our offerings to even more community and family-focused activities.

Though this has been a year of uncertainty and change we are hopeful and working towards a sunny future.

If you are interested in partnering with Marlin School of Swimming please reach out to for more information.
