"Our daughter, Maranda (age 5) loves her swim classes. "Mommy! I LOVE swimming! My heart gets so excited! Let's go swimming everyday!"
She adores Coach Everett and Ms. Robin, and wants to swim just like them. Thank you, SwimKids, for making this such a fantastic experience!"

Lisa Mah

"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! "

Kelly Delaune

"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

"I want to personally thank Kevin, who works at the Gainesville SwimKids. My son was very nervous about getting in the water for his first stealth swim meet. Kevin sat with him throughout the whole swim meet and encouraged him to get in the water. He stayed with my son until the meet was over. he then changed into his swimsuit so he could race my son without everyone watching. My son felt like a champion racing Kevin. Thank you so much Kevin for all your patience and time you gave to my son. It's nice to know there are people like you out there that truly love their job and the children they work with."

"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"

"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."

Melanie Williams

"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!"

"The SwimKids program fills a void in a child's development as a swimmer that doesn't exist elsewhere here in Northern Va. We are absolutely thrilled with the progress our children are both making."

SwimKids Parent, Woodbridge, VA

"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

"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

"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."

Heather Hewson, Fredericksburg, VA

"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

"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

"SwimKids lessons were the best thing we ever did for our kids! Worth every penny. Both of our children became confident swimmers and we are able to relax and enjoy summer outings."

Diane Vaccaro

"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

"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!!"

"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

"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."
