What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"*5 star* So impressed with our first "camp" at the Gainesville location! Everyone is extremely accommodating, friendly, enthusiastic and excited to teach our kids! Clean environment. Our kids absolutely love their coach Katherine and the staff keep us up to date with the kids daily progress. The kids beg to go back daily. It's amazing to watch the kids love water and learn water safety/swimming. It's absolutely worth the money and we already signed the kids up for their second week of camp!"

"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

"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

"Last summer, our 4-year old was afraid of the pool, the ocean, and any other body of water. SwimKids taught him to love it in a matter of weeks. He looks forward to his swim lesson each week and especially loves his coach, Coach Christian who patiently puts up with Logan's chatter lesson after lesson. ... With just a few weeks in the pool, our 6 year old is already learning the fundamentals of floating and propelling himself by kicking. We're so excited to see him in the pool this summer with his new skills and abilities! Coach Kylie keeps him interested and makes it fun. We are so thankful to have found SwimKids! "

Rebecca, Gainesville, VA

Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"I am so pleased with this program! When my daughter first started she was terrified by everything from the drain in the pool to the water itself. With the patient and kind encouragement the staff has shown her, she is now swimming like a little fish. Her swimming lesson is her favorite part of the week. Thanks to all of you who have helped my daughter learn to love the pool!!"

Jessica Whitehead

"We've had a great experience with SwimKids. All staff have shown great patience and passion for helping to teach our son how to enjoy the water safely. We've had to be very patient in getting Max to put his face in the water ... and, he finally did it after many lessons. And, it was wonderful to see how all coaches and managers were genuinely excited at his accomplishment!! Thank you all so much!!"

Denise, Leesburg, VA

"The instructors have all been knowledgeable and flexible enough to tailor the session to the child. My son has ADHD and has trouble with sensory integration and transitions. When he has a rough day, the instructors try to connect with him and offer encouragement while still challenging him to try new things. He has learned so much this last year! Thank you! "

Maranda, Gainesville, VA

"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!""

"The SwimKids program is absolutely the best. Both my kids are swimming comfortably and have natural safety reflexes around the pool now which was always my goal for them. I can be at any pool with them and have peace of mind."

SwimKids Parent on Spring Survey

"Thanks SwimKids staff for providing such amazing coaches and a wonderful new pool for our little ones. My daughter loves to swim and I am so proud to tell people that she has been taking swim lesson from you all since she was 8 months old. This summer as a 3 year old she is swimming all over the pool by herself. What a great life skill to have....learning to swim!"

Lindsay Kelsey

"Thank you for the last two years of encouragement and fun! Luke can swim with confidence and we are grateful!!!!"

Melanie Williams

"Just wanted to write and say how pleased I am with the progress of my boys! Mac started at the age of 3 and is cruising right along. Niko started at 1 1/2 and yesterday he did the back float all by himself, treaded water for at least 20 seconds and swam to the stairs. Both boys are doing great and I highly recommend SwimKids to all parents!"

Nicole Colavecchio

"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

Sidney Henderson, Woodbridge, VA

"All of my children have shown great improvement this season, and we are very glad that we decided to have them work on their technical skills this winter. My son Nic qualified for All Stars in the breaststroke at the first meet of the season and is ranked in fly and IM. My daughters are doing well too, showing faster times and great form each time they race. We will be back with you guys in the fall! "

Joy Macchiarolo, Leesburg, VA

"We have had a wonderful experience with SwimKids Leesburg. At the beginning of the summer, my son wouldn't even put his face in the water, and now he is about to pass level 3. Coach Zach and Coach Meghan have been fantastic! Overall, I am so pleased with everything at SwimKids and would absolutely recommend it to anyone whose children need lessons."
