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."

Shirley Lempitsky, Dumfries, VA

"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 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."

Morgan Mikluscak

"When we had to leave SwimKids a year ago to move overseas, my Tot was crushed. Well since she has been in Japan she has continued to crush swimming levels they offer here and will be in a class with kids 3-4 yrs older then her next week. All because of where she started at with SwimKids and Coach Taylor!!! She also told me today she wants to go to the Olympics one day because she loves to pool that much!"

Cassandra Gulling Bleam

"Truly amazed with your staff and how they work with the children. Our granddaughter has shown great improvement, and we are very thankful there is a program she can have fun and learn at the same time. Thank you SwimKids...You ALL are the best....."

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

Lisa Renee Smith

"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!"

"*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

"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

"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

"We love SwimKids! My kids have increased their confidence and love for swimming since taking lessons. The coaches are all motivating and enthusiastic! The facility is great, and the process of signing up for classes is so easy. We plan to continue swim lessons each summer. Thanks for making this an enjoyable experience for our kids."

SwimKids Woodbridge Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"Thank you, Coaches Zach, Abby, Emily, Richie, and Kevin, for giving Daphne the confidence she needed to feel comfortable in the water. She LOVES camp. The other day before class, she said she didn't think she'd be able to hold her breath because she couldn't stop smiling. We are so thankful we found SwimKids. Thank you all so much for what you do for our kids."

Tara Holt

"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

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

Carolyn Little, Montclair, VA

"My daughter absolutely loves Coach Ashleigh & is having a wonderful experience learning to be comfortable in the water & learning to swim. My daughter was apprehensive at first about getting into the water & participating, but Coach Ashleigh was so warm and made the lessons so much fun. After a recent weekly lesson, my daughter said, "I want to do this EVERY day"!"

Kim Arnstine, Gainesville, VA

"We LOVE SwimKids! This past summer I had several people comment on how comfortable my boys were in the water and how wonderful they could swim. I always told them about SwimKids... Our coaches have been fantastic with the boys (especially considering the challenges that twins can be - when in the same class!)"

"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

"Alexia was on Stealth and Noah took lessons. Their swimming has improved dramatically. Last night Alexia placed 2nd overall in her age group in freestyle and swam with 26 girls. Noah is placing 2nd and 3rd overall in his backstroke. Alexia is now on to fly and IM and placing in her races.

We are thrilled, feel like we have gotten more than our money's worth, and will be back next year! Thank you for helping my children become incredible, confident swimmers!"

Kathleen Slate

"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

"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!"

SwimKids Woodbridge Parent on 2012 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

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