What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"It has taught Matthew wonderful skills - he was so successful on the swim team because of your program! Everything has been wonderful!"

Susie Quinn, Lake Ridge, VA

"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."

"*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!"

Tami Frazier Eppolite

"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."

"I am very happy with my son's swim lessons! My son fell into the deep end of our inground swimming pool last May. You can imagine the fear that goes through a parent's mind when their 4 year old falls into a pool. This was the first time this had ever happened. Our son remained calm. After the ordeal, I asked him if he was scared when he fell in. He told us that he was not scared because he did what he was taught to do in swim class. He floated to the top of the water and swam to the ladder. He did not panic. This was the goal we had from the time we started swim lessons when he was a year old...that he would be able to know what to do if he were ever in this situation. I just want to send a heartfelt "Thank you" to all of the staff at Swim Kids. You make a huge difference in the lives of your students . You have made a huge difference in my sons life and for that I am grateful! "

Amy Atwell

"SwimKids has provided such a positive experience for my 4 year old. Each day he's excited to attend swim lessons! The small class sizes allows for each student to receive the individual attention they need. I highly recommend SwimKids."

Kim Bryson

"I think SwimKids has been amazing. My son has learned so much. We just got back from family vacation to the Caribbean and the number 1 comment was they couldn't believe he could swim so well for only being 3. My husband and I are both very happy with the program."

"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."

"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

"My Special Needs child (4 1/2yr old) has been at SwimKids for almost 2 yrs now. He has shown such progress that I can't believe how close he is to swimming on his own. They have an awesome staff (from the coaches to desk staff) who make my son feel so welcomed and loved that we have a hard time getting him out of there when his lessons are done. My older two kids 7 yrs and 9 yrs old have also attended for 2 yrs. They started out fearing to jump in to the pool. Now less then 2 yrs later one has been on the Stealth Swim Team all year and the second will be starting next month. Thank you Leesburg SwimKids Family!"

Sunita Ruhnke

"As always, we love our SwimKids swim camps! I am thrilled with the progress both Kaitlyn and Tristan have made and share my love for SwimKids every chance I get! Keep up the great work!"

Dana O'Shaughnessy

"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

"Best coaches and swimming lessons for children. Kevin's progress over summer is remarkable! Highly recommend SwimKids."

Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"We have been members of SwimKids since June 2011. Everyone we have interacted with has been extremely helpful, polite and a pleasure to work with. Allison, Lauren and Becca take that kindness and thoughtfulness to the next level. They have been consistently gracious and accommodating. They all have worked together diligently to solve any problems that arose. The attention they provide me as a parent and the nurturing they provide my daughter is graciously appreciated. My daughter is always excited to attend her SwimKids lessons because they make her feel special and go the extra mile to ensure our happiness.

We have planned an executed a birthday party in October 2012 at SwimKids which her friends and their parents are still talking about. Becca did an outstanding job hosting and assisting the preparation. It was her support that made the party a raving success.

Thank you for bringing SwimKids to Gainesville, and thank you for the excellent staff that work at the facility. The SwimKids staff at Gainesville, is the reason we remain members at SwimKids. I will continue to encourage as many parents as I can to bring their kids to SwimKids Gainesville!"

Danielle Desalu

"My daughter has been swimming with swim kids for about four years, and we love you guys. She has learned so much, and has loved every coach she has had the opportunity to swim with. Thank you so much for all that you do for my child."

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

Melanie Williams

"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

"My grandson just finished three weeks of your evening camp attending each evening. It is impossible to measure his enthusiasm and success verbally, you must see his facial expression at the end of each week because that 'tells it all.' The instructors were so kind and helpful. ... It was a wonderful and successful experience thanks to your caring instructors."

Dolores Headlee

"GREAT place! My son started when he was 4 1/2 and is 5 now. He's been going weekly for 6 months now and still every week can't wait to go. He's had a few different teachers as he's moved up levels and they all have been terrific. One of the best "activities" I've ever signed him up for and I hope he wants to stay with it for a long time. "

Shawn K., Chantilly, VA

"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

"As a former American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor I have been very impressed with the SwimKids program. The teachers are really fantastic and engaging. The water is warm! It's great."

"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

"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!"

"SwimKids has been awesome. My son has learned so much, and we can't wait to start up again! You are teaching the kids how to survive! You can't put a price in that. Thank you!"

SwimKids Gainesville Parent on 2012 Survey

"The entire team at SwimKids is the best - from coaches to staff to managers. They are great with my son, and are very caring and nurturing people. You get the sense that they really love what they do. The facility is always very clean and everyone is so professional. I drive half hour each way to go to the Gainesville location because I value all the positives as well as their teaching philosophy. Great work. Keep it up! "
