What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"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

"SwimKids is the best in the biz. I think you all do a fantastic job of creating a positive environment as well as small groups to keep the kids feeling safe and engaged all the time! THANKS for all that you do!"

"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."

"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

"*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!"

"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 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."

"SwimKids lessons were the best thing we ever did for our kids! Worth every penny. Both of our children became confident swimmers and we are able to relax and enjoy summer outings."

Diane Vaccaro

"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

"My kids have had an amazing experience so far and they continue to enjoy it even more as they continue to go up levels. They are always awaiting anxiously for their SwimKids lesson all week!! I definitely made the right choice when I signed them up and I'm looking forward to signing up my little one soon."

Parent on 2014 Spring Survey

"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 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

"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."

"My daughter had her birthday party at the Woodbridge location last weekend. All of the staff was top notch. Coach Colton went out of his way to make my daughter's day special. Thank you SwimKids for "The best birthday party!""

Jennifer Murphy

"I liked the small individual classes and the very positive approach of the instructors. The feeling of accomplishment my daughter had from making such strides in a short period of time was great!"

Jill Buro, Dumfries, 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

Megan Faudree

"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"

"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 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 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

"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."
