What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"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."

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."

"Just a note to say thanks for two great sessions! The coaches were brilliant at striking the balance between encouraging and challenging the kids. I am so pleased with Will and Katie's progress, and I've been recommending SwimKids to everyone!"

Wendi Aebi

"*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

"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!!"

"The Dias Family is loving their Swim Camp. Even more special Natalia graduated her Tots 3 today! She is now super hyped and excited to join a summer swim team with her twin brother and older brother. We are so grateful for these past 5 years with SwimKids. All 4 of my kids have learned 1 of the most valuable life lessons of all - How to swim! We love the Woodbridge facility and the coaches Rock!"

Kristin Dias

"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 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

"I have been bringing my two boys to SwimKids for over six months now. I am extremely pleased at the skills they have gained in such a short amount of time. My son was fearful of going under water when he started and is now swimming independently . The coaches and staff are all so friendly and professional and great with kids . Coach Matt has been so patient with my sometimes difficult and sensory adverse children. We are so thankful for having him as a coach! SwimKids is a very professional and beautiful facility. The waiting area is great to get work done or for siblings to play as well. I will continue to recommend family and friends here!! "

Lisa Sinclair

"My son developed a fear of the deep end taking swim classes at our local rec center. Looked at SwimKids flier for a year before signing up the kids. Was very pleasantly surprised at the top quality to providing my kids the needed techniques to get the best strokes. Took both of my kids at the Woodbridge SwimKids location and they are flying through the drills. After 2 months my daughter is on their swim team and my son is now willing to go back to the deep end. The coaches and instructors are awesome. They are in the water with the kids and the small class sizes are perfect. They get little rewards for passing skills and certificates for graduating a level. We are truly happy to have found SwimKids and have highly recommended them to friends and familyy. We love the blue uniforms that come with registration.

Love the large family locker room. Can't tell you how much that alone is a relief for a parent with an opposite sex child. Most places have one family dressing room! Here they have an entire family locker room so there are no long lines."

Elaine A.

"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!"

"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

"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

"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"

Jessica Whitehead

"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

"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

"The entire program lends success for the children. Wish I'd has such a program when my older kids were learning to swim!
I appreciated the teachers' patience, and I especially like how they and the small classes help each child get comfortable in the water. Thanks! Just keep doing what you're doing, it works, the kids learn and they love their teachers!"

Jennifer Gillis, Dale City, VA

"5 star - From the professional staff who truly care about my daughter's progression to my daughters smile at the end of every class, I couldn't be happier!! "

Liz K Medina

"We started swim class when my son was 12 weeks old. He has loved going every week to splish splash class so much that we decided to continue in swimbabies classes . He is now 7 months old and am I truly impressed that he can hold his breath under water for 3 seconds. His favorite part of class is the Dino song. Thank you again to our coach and for the great friendly staff at the Leesburg location. "

Jeanette Lyles

"SwimKids has exceeded our expectations. Our daughter (age 5) loves it, improves measurably, and everyone is extremely nice and knowledgeable! We will be long-time clients!"

"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."
