SwimKids is excited to announce that construction of its new swim school is underway! This state of the art swim school is scheduled to open this summer of 2010 in Gainesville, VA, just behind the Virginia Gateway Shopping Center at the intersection of Wellington Rd and Limestone Drive. The 6000 square foot facility has an innovative and customized design for teaching kids and making families welcome. Special features of the swimming pool include a built-in tot dock for babies, several teaching areas for children, shallow depths from 2 1/2 - 4 feet so kids of all ages can touch the bottom, and warm 88 degree water year-round! Armed with the latest technology, the pool features a UV (ultraviolet) disinfection system, in addition to the traditional chlorine, and a chemical controller so that the pool can be maintained over the internet ... how cool is that? Parents and families of swimmers will be comfortable in the temperature controlled viewing area, complete with comfortable chairs, tables, wifi internet, and a children's area with toys for the siblings. 12 foot glass walls encapsulate the pool, so a good view of ongoing classes is to be found throughout the facility. SwimKids will continue to operate its 6 other locations at Westminster at Lake Ridge, Port Potomac, Woodbridge Sport & Health, Eagles Nest in Manassas, Lake Terrapin (new this summer), Gold's Gym in Fredericksburg, and the Regional Office and Swim Store.
