What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"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."

"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

"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! "

"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!"

"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!"

"Amazing. Awesome! Was hesitant to sign Piper up because of the cost, however it was worth every single penny. She grew so much in the two weeks she was enrolled in SwimKids, and the staff could not be any more patient, kind and delightful. Thank you for the wonderfully positive experience. We will see you next Spring!"

"My kids love the swim camp and learned so much in such a short period of time! The staff was attentive and made sure to give me updates on their progress. "

Lisa A., Oakton, VA

"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!"

"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."

Melanie Williams

"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!"

"We love SwimKids! My kids have increased their confidence and love for swimming since taking lessons. The coaches are all motivating and enthusiastic! The facility is great, and the process of signing up for classes is so easy. We plan to continue swim lessons each summer. Thanks for making this an enjoyable experience for our kids."

SwimKids Woodbridge Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"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!"

Woodbridge Parent on 2014 Spring 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)"

"Just a note to say thanks for two great sessions! The coaches were brilliant at striking the balance between encouraging and challenging the kids. I am so pleased with Will and Katie's progress, and I've been recommending SwimKids to everyone!"

Wendi Aebi

"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

"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!"

SwimKids Leesburg Parent on 2012 Survey

"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."

"The coaches have a wonderful positive attitude and they are great with the children. Everyone was wonderful!!"

Shirley Lempitsky, Dumfries, 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

"*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 liked the low student/teacher ratio. The coaches are fantastic with the kids - they make it fun!"

Carolyn Little, Montclair, VA

"SwimKids has been a true blessing for my children. One of my boys had a near-drowning experience when he was 6 and has been terrified of the water since. At 12, I convinced him to give SwimKids a try. Not only have they cured him of his fear, he loves swimming, loves going to SwimKids, and has asked if I will sign him up for a second weeknight class. Above all else, he has successfully learned to swim and I no longer fear his going on vacation with his dad or his going to summer camp (where he previously declined water activities). Thank you so much!"

"My kids love this place and so do I! They are learning so fast and having fun doing it. I stumbled on this place doing a random internet search and we are hooked. I plan to start my 3rd child in baby swim classes soon! "
