SwimKids Woodbridge Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"Everything about SwimKids is GREAT! The supervisors and staff are wonderful. I couldn't ask for better coaches for my kids. Coach Yurii knows just what to do with Daniel. I love how he works on technique and shows Daniel how to strengthen his muscles. He's wonderful. Coach Kristen is just as wonderful. My husband and I are thrilled that she is working with Heather. With Heather being a 3 year old and autistic, Coach Kristen has patience beyond imaginable."

"Just a note to say thanks for two great sessions! The coaches were brilliant at striking the balance between encouraging and challenging the kids. I am so pleased with Will and Katie's progress, and I've been recommending SwimKids to everyone!"

Wendi Aebi

"I have recommended your program to everyone I know that has children due to the superb quality of your program and coaches. I have two girls, one in SwimTots and the other in SwimBabies, and they absolutely love it! They both get so excited when it is time for class! Coach Taylor, Coach Keeli, and Coach Michael are excellent at what they do! Not only will we continue taking lessons through SwimKids, but we also keep recommending your program!"

"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

"My daughter (who is 3) went to the SwimKids in Leesburg this summer for a two week camp and I was BLOWN AWAY out how organized and clean and friendly it was. She would fight in the bathtub while I would wash her hair, she couldn't stand getting her face wet. Now she is totally at ease, puts her whole face under and comes back up laughing!! Her coach (coach Lisa) was extraordinary. Everything is relaxed and the kids can sense that. The instructors are always smiling and not pushy. I will definitely take our kids back there for more swim camps in the future. "

"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

"Our first experience at the pool was very warm and welcoming. The pool manager sought me out to tell me how my son was doing and spoke of some near term goals for him. My son left very happy and is looking towards returning on Saturday."

Debra and Edward Wisniewski

"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."

"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!"

"The Dias Family is loving their Swim Camp. Even more special Natalia graduated her Tots 3 today! She is now super hyped and excited to join a summer swim team with her twin brother and older brother. We are so grateful for these past 5 years with SwimKids. All 4 of my kids have learned 1 of the most valuable life lessons of all - How to swim! We love the Woodbridge facility and the coaches Rock!"

Kristin Dias

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

Carolyn Little, Montclair, VA

"My son has been a proud SwimKid for a number of years. We started out in the Mommy and Me swim classes. Over the years we've had the opportunity to work with a number of outstanding coaches. Each coach has taken the time to figure out the best approach for working with my son. I'd gladly recommend the SWIMKIDS to any parent interested in starting their little one off on the right foot with swim lessons in a safe and nurturing environment."

Circe Lunkins, Bristow, VA

"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

"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 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!!"

SwimKids Parent on Spring Survey

"I am thrilled with the SwimKids program. As a participant in the Swim Camp for just three weeks, I've seen my daughter graduate two levels! All due to the dedication, skill and enthusiasm of the coaches. Her coach clearly always had her best interests at heart and made every effort to try different ways of making her at ease in the water. I look forward to seeing my daughter's progress and thank all at SwimKids for your efforts!"

"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."

SwimKids Parent on 2012 Survey

"Before our kids came to SwimKids they were very afraid of the water. Over the course of the past year they have become better swimmers than we could have ever imagined possible. Thank you so much to the wonderful coaches and staff. They were always patient and never introduced more than the kids could handle. Not only are our kids more confident in the water, we are more comfortable as parents when they are around water. We love SwimKids and cannot thank you enough for the amazing difference you made in our children's lives."

Brian Mann, Woodbridge, VA

"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

"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!"
