What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"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

"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! 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."

fantastic as well as the rest of the staff. We have friends who are starting this summer because we raved so much about the quality of the classes. Keep doing what you are doing....it works!"

"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

"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

"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!"

"Thank you very much for the excellent training you provided our son, Ethan ...Coaches Becky, Janine, and Molly were superb in all facets of their instruction. Prior to SwimKids, Ethan was not comfortable in or around a swimming pool. However, in less than three weeks, he is excited and eager to participate in future pool activities.

Coach Becky provided an impressive overview of the program and helped us as parents maintain the appropriate perspective during his lessons. She also helped us in laying out a long-term plan in order to improve upon Ethan's milestones to date. Coach Janine and Coach Molly were perfect in their disposition and demeanor in building Ethan's confidence in them and in himself. The both have an ease with children that is endearing, positive and enthusiastic. We were incredibly comfortable with how they managed our son and converted him into an aquatic adventurer.

I have no doubts that your organization receives hundreds of letters from parents like us who appreciate the dedication and spirit in how you approach your responsibilities. Please commend your staff for their commitment to all children's well-being in helping them overcome their fear of the water. Ethan has and will continue to benefit from your impressive program. Thank you again for making this experience a special one."

George and Tracy Davidson

"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

"I am so happy with SwimKids. I am most impressed with the way SwimTots coaches are trained to interact in appropriate developmental ways with small children. My son (who is 4) feels both challenged and successful. "

"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 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

"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!!"

"It has taught Matthew wonderful skills - he was so successful on the swim team because of your program! Everything has been wonderful!"

Susie Quinn, Lake Ridge, VA

"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

"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

"I absolutely love the SwimKids program and have recommended it to everyone that mentions putting their child in swimming lessons. My child was apprehensive about getting into the pool prior to attending SwimKids. We are planning to continue with the program as well as enroll our youngest. I can't say enough about the program. It's wonderful and we are grateful to have it in our area."

"The coaches have a wonderful positive attitude and they are great with the children. Everyone was wonderful!!"

Shirley Lempitsky, 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

"You have excelled in helping our girls learn to swim. In comparison to other places where lessons are taught, I value the way in which you also teach "us", the parents, to continue at home what we have learnt and "how" to do the techniques in order to help the kids swim safely. Thank you!"

SwimKids Gainesville Parent on 2012 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

"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

"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! "
