What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"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

"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

"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."

"My daughter Alex has taken swim lessons with SwimKids for almost a year now. She looks forward to each lesson and is really learning a lot. The other day she was playing with her Barbies on her water table and I overheard her giving swim lessons to her Barbie dolls. She told them she was coach Cara and they were going to have "so much fun today." She ran through the songs and various exercises (bobs, floats, kicks, etc.) with each Barbie. What particularly struck me was the way she was praising each of "them" for their effort and hard work...just as she receives each lesson.

So...thank you and your staff for making my 3 year old daughter feel as special as she does each time we leave. I truly appreciate all the effort made each week to not only turn my daughter into a swimmer, but also help develop her character as demonstrated through an innocent playtime activity."

Heather Hewson, Fredericksburg, 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

"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

"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

"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."

Debra and Edward Wisniewski

"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

"We have been going to the Gainesville location for over a year (summer camps and monthly lessons). I am SO impressed and thrilled with every aspect of your business . Ashleigh is an excellent manager/communicator and the ladies at the desk are always so helpful! My girls have had several coaches and always leave with smiles on their faces."

"Swim lessons are the highlight of my son's week. He loves being in the water and thanks to his wonderful teacher, he is making great progress. "

Megan Faudree

"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

"The entire team at SwimKids is the best - from coaches to staff to managers. They are great with my son, and are very caring and nurturing people. You get the sense that they really love what they do. The facility is always very clean and everyone is so professional. I drive half hour each way to go to the Gainesville location because I value all the positives as well as their teaching philosophy. Great work. Keep it up! "

Sandra Semaan

"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!"

Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"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

"SwimKids has provided such a positive experience for my 4 year old. Each day he's excited to attend swim lessons! The small class sizes allows for each student to receive the individual attention they need. I highly recommend SwimKids."

"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! :)"

"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!!"

"These people know what they are doing! What a great place for your child to learn to swim. We love it!"

Lisa Renee Smith

"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."

George and Tracy Davidson
