"My kids love the swim camp and learned so much in such a short period of time! The staff was attentive and made sure to give me updates on their progress. "

Lisa A., Oakton, VA

"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

"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!"

"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

"My kids love this place and so do I! They are learning so fast and having fun doing it. I stumbled on this place doing a random internet search and we are hooked. I plan to start my 3rd child in baby swim classes soon! "

Margaret Sarro

"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

"Can't say enough WONDERFUL things about the Woodbridge location. They took my daughter from being scared of the water to going under by herself in less than 2 months!! Now she's a fishy who LOVES the pool and is confident, but safe in it! Thank you!!"

Teresa Savage

"We have thoroughly enjoyed Swim Camp this year. Our daughter learned a great deal in every minute of class. It was money well spent and we will return for more lessons!"

James Pritchert

"My daughter started in SwimKids a year ago when she'd just turned 3. She was afraid & didn't want to put her head under the water. Within 2 lessons, she was no longer afraid & would eagerly go under water. Needless to say, this made everything, especially bath time much easier. My family was amazed that at 3.5 she could actually really swim on our summer vacation! She has continued to progress under the watchful eye of her beloved Coach Ashley. Ashley really "gets" my little diva & Margie strives to impress her. I can't say enough good things about the program and the staff at the Gainesville facility! "

Mary-Rose Amos

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

Carolyn Little, Montclair, VA

"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!"

SwimKids Fredericksburg Parent on 2012 Survey

"Today was our first lesson at SwimKids in Leesburg. We recently relocated from San Diego where my 3 year old son has been swimming for the last 2 years. After trying lessons at 4 different swim schools in the Northern Virginia area the last 3 months and seeing my son regress in his skills and confidence, I was very disappointed in the choices I was finding for swimming instruction. I hadn't considered SwimKids originally due to the long commute for us, but after today's lesson, the drive is definitely worth it! I can't express how pleased I was with his lesson at SwimKids today. I saw my happy motivated swimmer back in the pool high fiving his coach and coming out of the pool very excited to tell me all about what he did! From your awesome front desk staff who have been very helpful to having personal progress updates from Ann-Margaret throughout the sessions, we finally have found a quality swimming program that my son loves. THANK YOU SwimKids!"

Jennifer Howard

"I liked the small individual classes and the very positive approach of the instructors. The feeling of accomplishment my daughter had from making such strides in a short period of time was great!"

Jill Buro, Dumfries, VA

"Both my girls (4 and 5) have taken 3 weeks worth of lessons so far this summer. We had a couple of breaks in betweeen because of vacation so not straight 3 weeks. Anyways, they have made AMAZING progress. I HIGHLY recommend SwimKids to anyone who wants to see real quality results when it comes to teaching your kids how to swim. I have tried some centers that are closer to my neighborhood, but was not happy with the results. I think it helps that SwimKids is every day of the week and not just once a week. The SwimKids in Leesburg is only a 15 minute drive, but it's worth it!! I love it, and the Kids love it!!!

We had different instructors each week, and each one was superb. They really know how to work with the kids and get them going with the right techniques. Both my girls, even at just 3 weeks worth of lessons, are swimming so confidently, front and back floating, kicking, opening eyes under the water, and pushing off from the wall. They are learning some great safety skills right now in Level 4.

Bottom line, SwimKids rocks. "

Mary K., Sterling, VA

"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! "

Sandra Semaan

"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

"SwimKids has been a true blessing for my children. One of my boys had a near-drowning experience when he was 6 and has been terrified of the water since. At 12, I convinced him to give SwimKids a try. Not only have they cured him of his fear, he loves swimming, loves going to SwimKids, and has asked if I will sign him up for a second weeknight class. Above all else, he has successfully learned to swim and I no longer fear his going on vacation with his dad or his going to summer camp (where he previously declined water activities). Thank you so much!"

Woodbridge Parent on 2014 Spring 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."

Tammy Toth

"We love having SwimKids in the Fredericksburg area, keeps us close to home. We just started in January and WOW!!! All of the Coaches are top notch and we are kicking ourselves for not doing this sooner. You all rock!!"

Marcia Whaley

"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 love SwimKids! The coaches and managers are fantastic, both of our girls have learned so much in such a positive and fun environment! The class sizes are great , it allows for a lot of personal attention! Thank you so much for keeping my girls safe in the water!"

Allison, Fredericksburg, VA

"The web page said "Your child will learn to swim at SwimKids! We build self-confidence while building swim skills!!" So true. My 4 year old daughter will be beginning her 6th week at SwimKids and I think it's a phenomenal program, especially since my daughter seems to enjoy it so much. Her classes have had 2 to 3 students each time and she has had the same instructor "Coach Melody" and she is fantastic, very patient and encouraging with the children, but also great at controlling 3 kids between the ages of 3 and 5 during the lesson. My daughter has gone from not wanting to get water in her eyes to being able to back and front float, tread water, and put her head under and open her eyes. ...
We are keeping her with SwimKids. We may change instructors as she progresses, but from what I see of the program it's a great way for kids to learn to swim and the encouragement my daughter gets during class is builds on her confidence. She lights up when she passes a level or accomplishes something new. "

Nikki B., Woodbridge, VA

"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
