What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"Amazing. Awesome! Was hesitant to sign Piper up because of the cost, however it was worth every single penny. She grew so much in the two weeks she was enrolled in SwimKids, and the staff could not be any more patient, kind and delightful. Thank you for the wonderfully positive experience. We will see you next Spring!"

"Thank you, Coaches Zach, Abby, Emily, Richie, and Kevin, for giving Daphne the confidence she needed to feel comfortable in the water. She LOVES camp. The other day before class, she said she didn't think she'd be able to hold her breath because she couldn't stop smiling. We are so thankful we found SwimKids. Thank you all so much for what you do for our kids."

Tara Holt

"You have excelled in helping our girls learn to swim. In comparison to other places where lessons are taught, I value the way in which you also teach "us", the parents, to continue at home what we have learnt and "how" to do the techniques in order to help the kids swim safely. Thank you!"

"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

"Our two girls went from being reluctant to put their faces in the water to being avid happy swimmers in 5 weeks. The progression of skills ... quickly brings about the ability to gain confidence and make progress in learning to swim. The result is children who are brimming with joy as they are transformed from water-fearing to water-loving people."

Suey Nordberg, Lake Ridge, VA

"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

"SwimKids lessons were the best thing we ever did for our kids! Worth every penny. Both of our children became confident swimmers and we are able to relax and enjoy summer outings."

Diane Vaccaro

"Amazing place. The coaches and staff excel at their jobs and make it a pleasure for kids and their parents. My son has learned so much and had a ton of fun doing it. They far exceeded my expectations."

Kelly Thomas

"The coaches at Swimkids - Leesburg are awesome! So caring, so involved, so fun! Each week is a personalized experience! And even though she is not in the water with us when we are there (she is the Supervisor), we love Coach Toni and her updates! :)"

"Thank you very much for the excellent training you provided our son, Ethan ...Coaches Becky, Janine, and Molly were superb in all facets of their instruction. Prior to SwimKids, Ethan was not comfortable in or around a swimming pool. However, in less than three weeks, he is excited and eager to participate in future pool activities.

Coach Becky provided an impressive overview of the program and helped us as parents maintain the appropriate perspective during his lessons. She also helped us in laying out a long-term plan in order to improve upon Ethan's milestones to date. Coach Janine and Coach Molly were perfect in their disposition and demeanor in building Ethan's confidence in them and in himself. The both have an ease with children that is endearing, positive and enthusiastic. We were incredibly comfortable with how they managed our son and converted him into an aquatic adventurer.

I have no doubts that your organization receives hundreds of letters from parents like us who appreciate the dedication and spirit in how you approach your responsibilities. Please commend your staff for their commitment to all children's well-being in helping them overcome their fear of the water. Ethan has and will continue to benefit from your impressive program. Thank you again for making this experience a special one."

"I am so happy with SwimKids. I am most impressed with the way SwimTots coaches are trained to interact in appropriate developmental ways with small children. My son (who is 4) feels both challenged and successful. "

SwimKids Leesburg Parent on 2012 Survey

"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

"SwimKids has exceeded our expectations. Our daughter (age 5) loves it, improves measurably, and everyone is extremely nice and knowledgeable! We will be long-time clients!"

SwimKids Parent on Spring Survey

"Our daughter loves the water, but would never let go of myself or my husband while swimming. She was terrified of swimming alone... until we enrolled her at SwimKids. She's blossomed into quite the little water bug. Thank you SwimKids for giving us all the freedom to enjoy swimming!"

Sarah Emerson

"I am very happy with SwimKids and so are my kids. From day 1, my son Adam, 5 years old, went from being petrified of the water to LOVING IT!!!! Keep up the good work!! "

Nabila Urbano, Woodbridge, VA

"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."

"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

"The instructors and Site Supervisor are a wonderful team! They listen to each child's needs and strive to work at that child's pace, always with praise and encouragement!
Although I pay for membership at another pool, I prefer SwimKids to train my children. They keep the class size small, and they keep age and level of swimming together so preschoolers are not overwhelmed ... I appreciate the rapport that the staff has with parents! Always taking time to make each parent aware of their child's accomplishments."

Mary Gill, Lake Ridge, VA

"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 daughter had her birthday party at the Woodbridge location last weekend. All of the staff was top notch. Coach Colton went out of his way to make my daughter's day special. Thank you SwimKids for "The best birthday party!""

Jennifer Murphy

"5 star - From the professional staff who truly care about my daughter's progression to my daughters smile at the end of every class, I couldn't be happier!! "
