What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"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

"I want to express my thanks to SwimKids. My 2 girls (age 8 and 4) started with swim camps about 2 months ago with zero experience in a pool. Now, my oldest is beginning the freestyle and my youngest in going underwater to retrieve "treasures". They have gained wonderful experience and a life lesson that cannot be matched . We love all of the coaches and staff. The staff has been very helpful in finding the best class schedule and levels for my girls. The size of the class and the size of the pool makes them feel very comfortable and confident."

"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

"Last Sunday was our first time and I was blown away! My kids have been afraid of water and I was expecting melt downs from both of them at the first lesson. Not only did they both love it, my daughter even graduated one level on the first day! We can't wait for our next lesson!"

"Both my girls (4 and 5) have taken 3 weeks worth of lessons so far this summer. We had a couple of breaks in betweeen because of vacation so not straight 3 weeks. Anyways, they have made AMAZING progress. I HIGHLY recommend SwimKids to anyone who wants to see real quality results when it comes to teaching your kids how to swim. I have tried some centers that are closer to my neighborhood, but was not happy with the results. I think it helps that SwimKids is every day of the week and not just once a week. The SwimKids in Leesburg is only a 15 minute drive, but it's worth it!! I love it, and the Kids love it!!!

We had different instructors each week, and each one was superb. They really know how to work with the kids and get them going with the right techniques. Both my girls, even at just 3 weeks worth of lessons, are swimming so confidently, front and back floating, kicking, opening eyes under the water, and pushing off from the wall. They are learning some great safety skills right now in Level 4.

Bottom line, SwimKids rocks. "

Mary K., Sterling, VA

"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

"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

"Brilliant at getting children's confidence in the water, and keeping them enthusiastic. The system works well, and the desk staff are always cheerful and helpful!"

"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

"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

"The SwimKids program is absolutely the best. Both my kids are swimming comfortably and have natural safety reflexes around the pool now which was always my goal for them. I can be at any pool with them and have peace of mind."

"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

"The instructors have all been knowledgeable and flexible enough to tailor the session to the child. My son has ADHD and has trouble with sensory integration and transitions. When he has a rough day, the instructors try to connect with him and offer encouragement while still challenging him to try new things. He has learned so much this last year! Thank you! "

Maranda, Gainesville, VA

"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."

"Just wanted to write and say how pleased I am with the progress of my boys! Mac started at the age of 3 and is cruising right along. Niko started at 1 1/2 and yesterday he did the back float all by himself, treaded water for at least 20 seconds and swam to the stairs. Both boys are doing great and I highly recommend SwimKids to all parents!"

Nicole Colavecchio

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

Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"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 son LOVED his first class! He made sure he told everyone about his whole class start to finish! He is counting the days down until his next lesson. "

"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 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!!"

"Today was our first lesson at SwimKids in Leesburg. We recently relocated from San Diego where my 3 year old son has been swimming for the last 2 years. After trying lessons at 4 different swim schools in the Northern Virginia area the last 3 months and seeing my son regress in his skills and confidence, I was very disappointed in the choices I was finding for swimming instruction. I hadn't considered SwimKids originally due to the long commute for us, but after today's lesson, the drive is definitely worth it! I can't express how pleased I was with his lesson at SwimKids today. I saw my happy motivated swimmer back in the pool high fiving his coach and coming out of the pool very excited to tell me all about what he did! From your awesome front desk staff who have been very helpful to having personal progress updates from Ann-Margaret throughout the sessions, we finally have found a quality swimming program that my son loves. THANK YOU SwimKids!"

Jennifer Howard

"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

"I have recommended your program to everyone I know that has children due to the superb quality of your program and coaches. I have two girls, one in SwimTots and the other in SwimBabies, and they absolutely love it! They both get so excited when it is time for class! Coach Taylor, Coach Keeli, and Coach Michael are excellent at what they do! Not only will we continue taking lessons through SwimKids, but we also keep recommending your program!"

"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

"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"!"
