"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

"My daughter started in SwimKids a year ago when she'd just turned 3. She was afraid & didn't want to put her head under the water. Within 2 lessons, she was no longer afraid & would eagerly go under water. Needless to say, this made everything, especially bath time much easier. My family was amazed that at 3.5 she could actually really swim on our summer vacation! She has continued to progress under the watchful eye of her beloved Coach Ashley. Ashley really "gets" my little diva & Margie strives to impress her. I can't say enough good things about the program and the staff at the Gainesville facility! "

"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)"

"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

"All of my children have shown great improvement this season, and we are very glad that we decided to have them work on their technical skills this winter. My son Nic qualified for All Stars in the breaststroke at the first meet of the season and is ranked in fly and IM. My daughters are doing well too, showing faster times and great form each time they race. We will be back with you guys in the fall! "

Joy Macchiarolo, Leesburg, VA

"Please keep doing what you are doing. SwimKids is a class act. The coaches are AMAZING! The program cannot be matched. Thank you for your love and dedication to creating a healthy respect for the water."

Parent Comment from 2012 Survey

"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"

"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

"SwimKids has been awesome. My son has learned so much, and we can't wait to start up again! You are teaching the kids how to survive! You can't put a price in that. Thank you!"

SwimKids Gainesville Parent on 2012 Survey

"I absolutely love the SwimKids program and have recommended it to everyone that mentions putting their child in swimming lessons. My child was apprehensive about getting into the pool prior to attending SwimKids. We are planning to continue with the program as well as enroll our youngest. I can't say enough about the program. It's wonderful and we are grateful to have it in our area."

"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."

"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

"We are super impressed with the Coaches, Site Manager and just everything really. We attend the Fredericksburg Swim Kids Location and the Coaches there, everyone really, is super great. I'm really thrilled we made the switch, our daughter, Ciara, has come a long way in a short amount of time. She graduated from Level 1 in 6 weeks and we thought for sure that would take until the summer. Even though she still has a long way to go, she is making so much progress and she is gaining confidence in herself. It's super amazing to watch all the kids grow, we cheer everyone on in our daughters class. You all rock. Thank you for an amazing swim program."

"I am very happy with my son's swim lessons! My son fell into the deep end of our inground swimming pool last May. You can imagine the fear that goes through a parent's mind when their 4 year old falls into a pool. This was the first time this had ever happened. Our son remained calm. After the ordeal, I asked him if he was scared when he fell in. He told us that he was not scared because he did what he was taught to do in swim class. He floated to the top of the water and swam to the ladder. He did not panic. This was the goal we had from the time we started swim lessons when he was a year old...that he would be able to know what to do if he were ever in this situation. I just want to send a heartfelt "Thank you" to all of the staff at Swim Kids. You make a huge difference in the lives of your students . You have made a huge difference in my sons life and for that I am grateful! "

"My son loves Coach Taylor. She is so patient with him and makes him feel so special. She has made our SwimKids experience great!!"

Sidney Henderson, Woodbridge, VA

"I think that SwimKids is the absolute best swimming program for children! I have two of my children enrolled and hope to enroll my third daughter as soon as she is able. Thank you for offering such a wonderful learning experience for my children!"

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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!"

"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! "

Margaret Sarro
