  • "My daughter started in SwimKids a year ago when she'd just turned 3. She was afraid & didn't want to put her head under the water. Within 2 lessons, she was no longer afraid & would eagerly go under water. Needless to say, this made everything, especially bath time much easier. My family was amazed that at 3.5 she could actually really swim on our summer vacation! She has continued to progress under the watchful eye of her beloved Coach Ashley. Ashley really "gets" my little diva & Margie strives to impress her. I can't say enough good things about the program and the staff at the Gainesville facility! "

SwimKids Swim School Did you know babies who swim acquire important language skills well ahead of "what's normal"? Children who swim can start to understand and use "the future tense" *two years* ahead of CDC milestones! (Griffith University, Griffith Institute for Academic Research).

It may seem like a peripheral skill, but the next time you say to your toddler, "First we eat our carrots, and then we will have a treat", you can be confident they understand you! :-)

SwimKids Swim School Meet Coach Ben, a true hero who is always ready to hit the water. A "native of Prince William County, born and raised", Ben would like to someday get a "Doctoral Degree in Psychopharmacology" where he "would be able to research, develop, and create new drugs with the possibility of curing diseases.” What Ben loves most about working at SwimKids is "all the connections you can make with kids and the impact you're making in their lives and vice versa. Something I've learned about myself while working at SwimKids is that I'm able to be more extroverted than I usually am in my personal life.” When Ben isn’t working he likes to “simply just relax, either by playing video games with my siblings or sleeping”. Ben’s favorite book is "Contact" by Carl Sagan. Ben doesn’t have a dream vacation in mind and says, “I don't have a particular country I would like to visit, but I would want to explore all the different natural parts of the world and observe wild animals”. If Ben could be any animal he says “I would want to be a blue whale because they're a majestic creature and for being so large, they're able to hide very well only coming up when they choose to”. Something that Ben finds he is most proud of “is actually saving a life as a lifeguard by performing rescue-breathing until EMS arrived and took over.” That's an amazing story, Ben! Thank you for saving lives everyday by teaching our swimmers how to swim and be safe in the water. It's great to have a true hero as part of our SwimKids Family!
