What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"I want to personally thank Kevin, who works at the Gainesville SwimKids. My son was very nervous about getting in the water for his first stealth swim meet. Kevin sat with him throughout the whole swim meet and encouraged him to get in the water. He stayed with my son until the meet was over. he then changed into his swimsuit so he could race my son without everyone watching. My son felt like a champion racing Kevin. Thank you so much Kevin for all your patience and time you gave to my son. It's nice to know there are people like you out there that truly love their job and the children they work with."

"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."

Kim Bryson

"We've had a great experience with SwimKids. All staff have shown great patience and passion for helping to teach our son how to enjoy the water safely. We've had to be very patient in getting Max to put his face in the water ... and, he finally did it after many lessons. And, it was wonderful to see how all coaches and managers were genuinely excited at his accomplishment!! Thank you all so much!!"

Denise, Leesburg, VA

"Our daughter loves the water, but would never let go of myself or my husband while swimming. She was terrified of swimming alone... until we enrolled her at SwimKids. She's blossomed into quite the little water bug. Thank you SwimKids for giving us all the freedom to enjoy swimming!"

Sarah Emerson

"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

"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 very happy with SwimKids and so are my kids. From day 1, my son Adam, 5 years old, went from being petrified of the water to LOVING IT!!!! Keep up the good work!! "

Nabila Urbano, Woodbridge, VA

"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

"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

"We have been members of SwimKids since June 2011. Everyone we have interacted with has been extremely helpful, polite and a pleasure to work with. Allison, Lauren and Becca take that kindness and thoughtfulness to the next level. They have been consistently gracious and accommodating. They all have worked together diligently to solve any problems that arose. The attention they provide me as a parent and the nurturing they provide my daughter is graciously appreciated. My daughter is always excited to attend her SwimKids lessons because they make her feel special and go the extra mile to ensure our happiness.

We have planned an executed a birthday party in October 2012 at SwimKids which her friends and their parents are still talking about. Becca did an outstanding job hosting and assisting the preparation. It was her support that made the party a raving success.

Thank you for bringing SwimKids to Gainesville, and thank you for the excellent staff that work at the facility. The SwimKids staff at Gainesville, is the reason we remain members at SwimKids. I will continue to encourage as many parents as I can to bring their kids to SwimKids Gainesville!"

"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

"My son has been a proud SwimKid for a number of years. We started out in the Mommy and Me swim classes. Over the years we've had the opportunity to work with a number of outstanding coaches. Each coach has taken the time to figure out the best approach for working with my son. I'd gladly recommend the SWIMKIDS to any parent interested in starting their little one off on the right foot with swim lessons in a safe and nurturing environment."

Circe Lunkins, Bristow, 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

"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

"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."

"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

"We have thoroughly enjoyed Swim Camp this year. Our daughter learned a great deal in every minute of class. It was money well spent and we will return for more lessons!"

James Pritchert

"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"

"Best coaches and swimming lessons for children. Kevin's progress over summer is remarkable! Highly recommend SwimKids."

Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"Last summer, our 4-year old was afraid of the pool, the ocean, and any other body of water. SwimKids taught him to love it in a matter of weeks. He looks forward to his swim lesson each week and especially loves his coach, Coach Christian who patiently puts up with Logan's chatter lesson after lesson. ... With just a few weeks in the pool, our 6 year old is already learning the fundamentals of floating and propelling himself by kicking. We're so excited to see him in the pool this summer with his new skills and abilities! Coach Kylie keeps him interested and makes it fun. We are so thankful to have found SwimKids! "

Rebecca, Gainesville, VA

"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

"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!"

SwimKids Parent on Spring Survey

"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!"

Sunita Ruhnke

"You have excelled in helping our girls learn to swim. In comparison to other places where lessons are taught, I value the way in which you also teach "us", the parents, to continue at home what we have learnt and "how" to do the techniques in order to help the kids swim safely. Thank you!"

SwimKids Gainesville Parent on 2012 Survey

"This session was my first with SwimKids. My son, Noah, is 5 and started as a level 1. He was absolutely terrified of the water this past summer and I wasn't sure how he would do. Noah is now a level 3 and absolutely loves his SwimKids lessons. Coach Kristen is an excellent coach and has helped Noah come such a long way. We are really impressed with the program and will continue indefinitely. Thanks so much!"
