What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"These people know what they are doing! What a great place for your child to learn to swim. We love it!"

Lisa Renee Smith

"We love you! Every instructor has been top-notch and in summer swim camps it is great that you keep the same instructor for the whole week. And bravo for bringing in more male instructors- it is always good to have male role models/teachers for my son. Love the new Woodbridge facility!"

"I always highly recommend your company to other parents in the community. I've observed how well your site manager promoted an organized, prompt atmosphere each week and is highly knowledgeable of the expectations of the coaches and students. As a former preschool professional, I adored how Coach Megan connects with her students, redirects them back to tasks most appropriately (patiently & calmly) and has a way of giving me, the parent, eye contact to draw my attention to some new skill my daughter(s) acquired."

"My daughter has learned so much from Gainesville SwimKids. She was always confident in the water, but now I know she has the skills to back it up. She's always so proud any time she passes her skills and moves on to the next level. Thank you! "

Susan Del Castillo

"Special thanks to the Gainesville team! They are awesome, easy to work with, and committed to helping our kids become stronger swimmers. We love the program enough to drive from Vienna to participate!"

Valerie Henderson

"We have been going to the Gainesville location for over a year (summer camps and monthly lessons). I am SO impressed and thrilled with every aspect of your business . Ashleigh is an excellent manager/communicator and the ladies at the desk are always so helpful! My girls have had several coaches and always leave with smiles on their faces."

"More praises to the SwimKids Swim Team! My boys had their first swim meet of the season last night and placed in every event they swam!!!!! Including 3 heat winners and 1st place ribbons (their first ever in 5 years on the team)! They are completely different swimmers this season and a force to be reckoned with! Thank you, Thank you! They are flying high on confidence this morning!"

Shell Wilson

"This session was my first with SwimKids. My son, Noah, is 5 and started as a level 1. He was absolutely terrified of the water this past summer and I wasn't sure how he would do. Noah is now a level 3 and absolutely loves his SwimKids lessons. Coach Kristen is an excellent coach and has helped Noah come such a long way. We are really impressed with the program and will continue indefinitely. Thanks so much!"

Susan Lane

"We started swim class when my son was 12 weeks old. He has loved going every week to splish splash class so much that we decided to continue in swimbabies classes . He is now 7 months old and am I truly impressed that he can hold his breath under water for 3 seconds. His favorite part of class is the Dino song. Thank you again to our coach and for the great friendly staff at the Leesburg location. "

Jeanette Lyles

"I have been bringing my two boys to SwimKids for over six months now. I am extremely pleased at the skills they have gained in such a short amount of time. My son was fearful of going under water when he started and is now swimming independently . The coaches and staff are all so friendly and professional and great with kids . Coach Matt has been so patient with my sometimes difficult and sensory adverse children. We are so thankful for having him as a coach! SwimKids is a very professional and beautiful facility. The waiting area is great to get work done or for siblings to play as well. I will continue to recommend family and friends here!! "

Lisa Sinclair

"The coaches have a wonderful positive attitude and they are great with the children. Everyone was wonderful!!"

Shirley Lempitsky, Dumfries, VA

"Swim lessons are the highlight of my son's week. He loves being in the water and thanks to his wonderful teacher, he is making great progress. "

Megan Faudree

"When we had to leave SwimKids a year ago to move overseas, my Tot was crushed. Well since she has been in Japan she has continued to crush swimming levels they offer here and will be in a class with kids 3-4 yrs older then her next week. All because of where she started at with SwimKids and Coach Taylor!!! She also told me today she wants to go to the Olympics one day because she loves to pool that much!"

Cassandra Gulling Bleam

"Just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your programs in Gainesville! My three boys have made great strides in just two lessons!"

Lisa Matteson

"My son developed a fear of the deep end taking swim classes at our local rec center. Looked at SwimKids flier for a year before signing up the kids. Was very pleasantly surprised at the top quality to providing my kids the needed techniques to get the best strokes. Took both of my kids at the Woodbridge SwimKids location and they are flying through the drills. After 2 months my daughter is on their swim team and my son is now willing to go back to the deep end. The coaches and instructors are awesome. They are in the water with the kids and the small class sizes are perfect. They get little rewards for passing skills and certificates for graduating a level. We are truly happy to have found SwimKids and have highly recommended them to friends and familyy. We love the blue uniforms that come with registration.

Love the large family locker room. Can't tell you how much that alone is a relief for a parent with an opposite sex child. Most places have one family dressing room! Here they have an entire family locker room so there are no long lines."

Elaine A.

"Our daughter, Maranda (age 5) loves her swim classes. "Mommy! I LOVE swimming! My heart gets so excited! Let's go swimming everyday!"
She adores Coach Everett and Ms. Robin, and wants to swim just like them. Thank you, SwimKids, for making this such a fantastic experience!"

Lisa Mah

"We love the SwimKids program. All of our experience with various coaches over the past two years have been wonderful. This is truly the best swimming program around."

"Brilliant at getting children's confidence in the water, and keeping them enthusiastic. The system works well, and the desk staff are always cheerful and helpful!"

SwimKids Leesburg Parent on 2012 Survey

"I want to personally thank Kevin, who works at the Gainesville SwimKids. My son was very nervous about getting in the water for his first stealth swim meet. Kevin sat with him throughout the whole swim meet and encouraged him to get in the water. He stayed with my son until the meet was over. he then changed into his swimsuit so he could race my son without everyone watching. My son felt like a champion racing Kevin. Thank you so much Kevin for all your patience and time you gave to my son. It's nice to know there are people like you out there that truly love their job and the children they work with."

Morgan Mikluscak

"This was my daughter's first experience with swimming lessons. It was absolutely wonderful. I loved the small class and the instructor was great. She really knew how to work with a 4 year old. The facility was clean and the whole staff was cheerful and helpful. Thank you"

SwimKids Parent on Spring Survey

"We LOVE SwimKids! This past summer I had several people comment on how comfortable my boys were in the water and how wonderful they could swim. I always told them about SwimKids... Our coaches have been fantastic with the boys (especially considering the challenges that twins can be - when in the same class!)"

SwimKids Gainesville Parent on 2012 Survey

"I liked the low student/teacher ratio. The coaches are fantastic with the kids - they make it fun!"

Carolyn Little, Montclair, VA

"The manager and coach at SwimKids Gainesville are amazing. They were so welcoming, kind, and patient to my daughter not only on her first day of classes but each class after. Coach Jesse is such a great instructor and my daughter was thrilled to receive mail from him not once but twice! The manager, Kevin, is very thorough and takes time to explain everything. We are so pleased with SwimKids! "

Amy Covell

"We love SwimKids! Coach Taylor is so great with the little ones, and we've loved watching our boy progress since his days in the SplishSplash classes. At only 9 months, our son is safely entering the pool on his own to our 1-2-3 cue, learning to kick, and swimming underwater for 4 seconds at a time. This has been a great experience for all of us, and we can't wait to see where it takes him."
