Allison, Fredericksburg, VA

"We love Swim Kids. Both of our grandsons began frightened of the water, one is now bold and excited and the youngest is working his way through it with your help, just like his big brother did. We love your methods, your facility, and your patient, friendly staff."

Rosemary Wittrock

"We love you! Every instructor has been top-notch and in summer swim camps it is great that you keep the same instructor for the whole week. And bravo for bringing in more male instructors- it is always good to have male role models/teachers for my son. Love the new Woodbridge facility!"

"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

"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

"These people know what they are doing! What a great place for your child to learn to swim. We love it!"

Lisa Renee Smith

"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

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

Carolyn Little, Montclair, VA

"The manager and coach at SwimKids Gainesville are amazing. They were so welcoming, kind, and patient to my daughter not only on her first day of classes but each class after. Coach Jesse is such a great instructor and my daughter was thrilled to receive mail from him not once but twice! The manager, Kevin, is very thorough and takes time to explain everything. We are so pleased with SwimKids! "

Amy Covell

"You all are terrific from the office, supervisors, coaches, everything. Angie is wonderful and gets my daughter to do things that she was never able to do with other coaches. My son is one of the best swimmers in his school. I only have one person (company) to thank -- Thank you SwimKids!!"

SwimKids Parent on Spring Survey

"Last Sunday was our first time and I was blown away! My kids have been afraid of water and I was expecting melt downs from both of them at the first lesson. Not only did they both love it, my daughter even graduated one level on the first day! We can't wait for our next lesson!"

Woodbridge Parent on 2014 Spring Survey

"Victoria loved this so much she said, 'Grandma, I want to do this forever.' I saw real improvement and most importantly confidence and ease in the water."

Janis Brown

"Swim lessons are the highlight of my son's week. He loves being in the water and thanks to his wonderful teacher, he is making great progress. "

Megan Faudree

"I want to express my thanks to SwimKids. My 2 girls (age 8 and 4) started with swim camps about 2 months ago with zero experience in a pool. Now, my oldest is beginning the freestyle and my youngest in going underwater to retrieve "treasures". They have gained wonderful experience and a life lesson that cannot be matched . We love all of the coaches and staff. The staff has been very helpful in finding the best class schedule and levels for my girls. The size of the class and the size of the pool makes them feel very comfortable and confident."

"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

"We have been extremely impressed and pleased with Swim Kids. We were hesitant at first about the expense, but have really felt that the classes have been well structured and effective while also being a lot of fun. It's definitely a good investment. We'll be staying put!"

SwimKids Leesburg Parent on 2012 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!"

"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

"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

"There have been so many great coaches that my children have just adored. I really like the way the staff make it fun and give such great praise when they do something even minor!!! Way to go staff, and coaches!!!"

SwimKids Gainesville Parent on 2012 Survey

"My daughter Alex has taken swim lessons with SwimKids for almost a year now. She looks forward to each lesson and is really learning a lot. The other day she was playing with her Barbies on her water table and I overheard her giving swim lessons to her Barbie dolls. She told them she was coach Cara and they were going to have "so much fun today." She ran through the songs and various exercises (bobs, floats, kicks, etc.) with each Barbie. What particularly struck me was the way she was praising each of "them" for their effort and hard work...just as she receives each lesson.

So...thank you and your staff for making my 3 year old daughter feel as special as she does each time we leave. I truly appreciate all the effort made each week to not only turn my daughter into a swimmer, but also help develop her character as demonstrated through an innocent playtime activity."
