What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"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

"We have had a wonderful experience with SwimKids Leesburg. At the beginning of the summer, my son wouldn't even put his face in the water, and now he is about to pass level 3. Coach Zach and Coach Meghan have been fantastic! Overall, I am so pleased with everything at SwimKids and would absolutely recommend it to anyone whose children need lessons."

"We LOVE SwimKids! This past summer I had several people comment on how comfortable my boys were in the water and how wonderful they could swim. I always told them about SwimKids... Our coaches have been fantastic with the boys (especially considering the challenges that twins can be - when in the same class!)"

"The web page said "Your child will learn to swim at SwimKids! We build self-confidence while building swim skills!!" So true. My 4 year old daughter will be beginning her 6th week at SwimKids and I think it's a phenomenal program, especially since my daughter seems to enjoy it so much. Her classes have had 2 to 3 students each time and she has had the same instructor "Coach Melody" and she is fantastic, very patient and encouraging with the children, but also great at controlling 3 kids between the ages of 3 and 5 during the lesson. My daughter has gone from not wanting to get water in her eyes to being able to back and front float, tread water, and put her head under and open her eyes. ...
We are keeping her with SwimKids. We may change instructors as she progresses, but from what I see of the program it's a great way for kids to learn to swim and the encouragement my daughter gets during class is builds on her confidence. She lights up when she passes a level or accomplishes something new. "

"Some of the adjectives that describe the staff members at SwimKids are: Integrity, passionate, enthusiastic, encouraging, upbeat, FUN, creative, patient, and oh so loving. Our daughter Olivia is only 3 months old, but we already consider her a water baby. Coach Tony makes the classes interactive, social, and interesting to the babies. My husband looks forward to class each week. Not only is Olivia happy in the water, her Daddy loves the bond he feels with her during the class. We feel confident that we are investing in our infant's safety and in her future. Coach Tony is the Baby Whisperer. "

Tricia and Dan Caporale, Leesburg SwimKids

"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

"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! :)"

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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! "

Mary-Rose Amos

"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 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

"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 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

"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!"

Susan Lane

"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."

"Truly amazed with your staff and how they work with the children. Our granddaughter has shown great improvement, and we are very thankful there is a program she can have fun and learn at the same time. Thank you SwimKids...You ALL are the best....."

Robin Theisfeld, Stafford, VA

"I am thrilled with the SwimKids program. As a participant in the Swim Camp for just three weeks, I've seen my daughter graduate two levels! All due to the dedication, skill and enthusiasm of the coaches. Her coach clearly always had her best interests at heart and made every effort to try different ways of making her at ease in the water. I look forward to seeing my daughter's progress and thank all at SwimKids for your efforts!"

SwimKids Woodbridge Parent on 2012 Survey

"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."
