What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"Thank you for the last two years of encouragement and fun! Luke can swim with confidence and we are grateful!!!!"

Melanie Williams

"I am very happy with my son's swim lessons! My son fell into the deep end of our inground swimming pool last May. You can imagine the fear that goes through a parent's mind when their 4 year old falls into a pool. This was the first time this had ever happened. Our son remained calm. After the ordeal, I asked him if he was scared when he fell in. He told us that he was not scared because he did what he was taught to do in swim class. He floated to the top of the water and swam to the ladder. He did not panic. This was the goal we had from the time we started swim lessons when he was a year old...that he would be able to know what to do if he were ever in this situation. I just want to send a heartfelt "Thank you" to all of the staff at Swim Kids. You make a huge difference in the lives of your students . You have made a huge difference in my sons life and for that I am grateful! "

"My daughter had her birthday party at the Woodbridge location last weekend. All of the staff was top notch. Coach Colton went out of his way to make my daughter's day special. Thank you SwimKids for "The best birthday party!""

Jennifer Murphy

"Just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your programs in Gainesville! My three boys have made great strides in just two lessons!"

Lisa Matteson

"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!"

"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

"*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

"I always highly recommend your company to other parents in the community. I've observed how well your site manager promoted an organized, prompt atmosphere each week and is highly knowledgeable of the expectations of the coaches and students. As a former preschool professional, I adored how Coach Megan connects with her students, redirects them back to tasks most appropriately (patiently & calmly) and has a way of giving me, the parent, eye contact to draw my attention to some new skill my daughter(s) acquired."

Robin Theisfeld, Stafford, VA

"Our daughter, Maranda (age 5) loves her swim classes. "Mommy! I LOVE swimming! My heart gets so excited! Let's go swimming everyday!"
She adores Coach Everett and Ms. Robin, and wants to swim just like them. Thank you, SwimKids, for making this such a fantastic experience!"

Lisa Mah

"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!"

"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."

SwimKids Parent on Spring 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

"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

"Amazing place. The coaches and staff excel at their jobs and make it a pleasure for kids and their parents. My son has learned so much and had a ton of fun doing it. They far exceeded my expectations."

Kelly Thomas

"My daughter has been swimming with swim kids for about four years, and we love you guys. She has learned so much, and has loved every coach she has had the opportunity to swim with. Thank you so much for all that you do for my child."

Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"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.

"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

"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

"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

"Everything about SwimKids is GREAT! The supervisors and staff are wonderful. I couldn't ask for better coaches for my kids. Coach Yurii knows just what to do with Daniel. I love how he works on technique and shows Daniel how to strengthen his muscles. He's wonderful. Coach Kristen is just as wonderful. My husband and I are thrilled that she is working with Heather. With Heather being a 3 year old and autistic, Coach Kristen has patience beyond imaginable."

Tammy Toth

"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

SwimKids Woodbridge Parent on 2012 Survey

"We are new to SwimKids, and we love it! Our kids have learned more in their 2 or 3 weeks of classes than in the last 4 years combined. You have great teachers with great patience! Thank you! (Leesburg location)"
