Suresh Kurapati

"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

"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. "

"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

"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."

"Some of the adjectives that describe the staff members at SwimKids are: Integrity, passionate, enthusiastic, encouraging, upbeat, FUN, creative, patient, and oh so loving. Our daughter Olivia is only 3 months old, but we already consider her a water baby. Coach Tony makes the classes interactive, social, and interesting to the babies. My husband looks forward to class each week. Not only is Olivia happy in the water, her Daddy loves the bond he feels with her during the class. We feel confident that we are investing in our infant's safety and in her future. Coach Tony is the Baby Whisperer. "

"We have had such a wonderful experience with SWIMKIDS. My son just loves it! Lots of availability, friendly staff and WONDERFUL swim coaches. The business aspect is smooth as well. Would recommend it to anyone!!"

Jessica Whitehead

"Last summer, our 4-year old was afraid of the pool, the ocean, and any other body of water. SwimKids taught him to love it in a matter of weeks. He looks forward to his swim lesson each week and especially loves his coach, Coach Christian who patiently puts up with Logan's chatter lesson after lesson. ... With just a few weeks in the pool, our 6 year old is already learning the fundamentals of floating and propelling himself by kicking. We're so excited to see him in the pool this summer with his new skills and abilities! Coach Kylie keeps him interested and makes it fun. We are so thankful to have found SwimKids! "

Rebecca, 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!!"

"Our son LOVED his first class! He made sure he told everyone about his whole class start to finish! He is counting the days down until his next lesson. "

"SwimKids is the best in the biz. I think you all do a fantastic job of creating a positive environment as well as small groups to keep the kids feeling safe and engaged all the time! THANKS for all that you do!"

SwimKids Woodbridge Parent on 2012 Survey

"My daughter has learned so much from Gainesville SwimKids. She was always confident in the water, but now I know she has the skills to back it up. She's always so proud any time she passes her skills and moves on to the next level. Thank you! "

Susan Del Castillo

"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

"My kids are swimming like little fish thanks to SwimKids! It has been amazing to see them progress so quickly and more importantly to see them having so much fun doing it!"

Margaret Sarro, Gainesville, VA

"My son loves Coach Taylor. She is so patient with him and makes him feel so special. She has made our SwimKids experience great!!"

Sidney Henderson, Woodbridge, VA

"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."

SwimKids Leesburg Parent on 2012 Survey

"Our two girls went from being reluctant to put their faces in the water to being avid happy swimmers in 5 weeks. The progression of skills ... quickly brings about the ability to gain confidence and make progress in learning to swim. The result is children who are brimming with joy as they are transformed from water-fearing to water-loving people."

Suey Nordberg, Lake Ridge, VA

"We think your program is outstanding. We wish we could have learned to swim with this program when we were kids! It is a great confidence builder!"

SwimKids Parent on Spring Survey

"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!)"

SwimKids Gainesville Parent on 2012 Survey

"We have been very impressed with the way SwimKids is operated. The coaches are
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!"

SwimKids Parent on Spring Survey

"This session was my first with SwimKids. My son, Noah, is 5 and started as a level 1. He was absolutely terrified of the water this past summer and I wasn't sure how he would do. Noah is now a level 3 and absolutely loves his SwimKids lessons. Coach Kristen is an excellent coach and has helped Noah come such a long way. We are really impressed with the program and will continue indefinitely. Thanks so much!"

Susan Lane

"The coaches at Swimkids - Leesburg are awesome! So caring, so involved, so fun! Each week is a personalized experience! And even though she is not in the water with us when we are there (she is the Supervisor), we love Coach Toni and her updates! :)"

SwimKids Leesburg Parent on 2012 Survey

"The instructors and Site Supervisor are a wonderful team! They listen to each child's needs and strive to work at that child's pace, always with praise and encouragement!
Although I pay for membership at another pool, I prefer SwimKids to train my children. They keep the class size small, and they keep age and level of swimming together so preschoolers are not overwhelmed ... I appreciate the rapport that the staff has with parents! Always taking time to make each parent aware of their child's accomplishments."

Mary Gill, Lake Ridge, VA

"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!"
