What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"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

"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

"When we had to leave SwimKids a year ago to move overseas, my Tot was crushed. Well since she has been in Japan she has continued to crush swimming levels they offer here and will be in a class with kids 3-4 yrs older then her next week. All because of where she started at with SwimKids and Coach Taylor!!! She also told me today she wants to go to the Olympics one day because she loves to pool that much!"

Cassandra Gulling Bleam

"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

"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"

"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 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. "

Sidney Henderson, Woodbridge, VA

"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!)"

"We love SwimKids! The coaches and managers are fantastic, both of our girls have learned so much in such a positive and fun environment! The class sizes are great , it allows for a lot of personal attention! Thank you so much for keeping my girls safe in the water!"

Allison, Fredericksburg, VA

"We love Swim Kids. Both of our grandsons began frightened of the water, one is now bold and excited and the youngest is working his way through it with your help, just like his big brother did. We love your methods, your facility, and your patient, friendly staff."

Rosemary Wittrock

"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

"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

"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!"

"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

"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

"*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

"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!"

"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

"SwimKids is a great place for kids to learn swimming . Staff is great, coaches are very experienced. They definitely go the extra mile to ensure that kids perfect the art of swimming."

Suresh Kurapati

"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 had a wonderful experience with SwimKids Leesburg. At the beginning of the summer, my son wouldn't even put his face in the water, and now he is about to pass level 3. Coach Zach and Coach Meghan have been fantastic! Overall, I am so pleased with everything at SwimKids and would absolutely recommend it to anyone whose children need lessons."

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."
