What People Are Saying About SwimKids...

"My daughter (who is 3) went to the SwimKids in Leesburg this summer for a two week camp and I was BLOWN AWAY out how organized and clean and friendly it was. She would fight in the bathtub while I would wash her hair, she couldn't stand getting her face wet. Now she is totally at ease, puts her whole face under and comes back up laughing!! Her coach (coach Lisa) was extraordinary. Everything is relaxed and the kids can sense that. The instructors are always smiling and not pushy. I will definitely take our kids back there for more swim camps in the future. "

Allison C., Ashburn, VA

"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."

"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 son has been a proud SwimKid for a number of years. We started out in the Mommy and Me swim classes. Over the years we've had the opportunity to work with a number of outstanding coaches. Each coach has taken the time to figure out the best approach for working with my son. I'd gladly recommend the SWIMKIDS to any parent interested in starting their little one off on the right foot with swim lessons in a safe and nurturing environment."

Circe Lunkins, Bristow, VA

"There have been so many great coaches that my children have just adored. I really like the way the staff make it fun and give such great praise when they do something even minor!!! Way to go staff, and coaches!!!"

"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

"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."

"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

"You all are terrific from the office, supervisors, coaches, everything. Angie is wonderful and gets my daughter to do things that she was never able to do with other coaches. My son is one of the best swimmers in his school. I only have one person (company) to thank -- Thank you 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."

Debra and Edward Wisniewski

"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."

"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."

Marcia and Ryan Whaley

"Thank you for the last two years of encouragement and fun! Luke can swim with confidence and we are grateful!!!!"

Melanie Williams

"We love you! Every instructor has been top-notch and in summer swim camps it is great that you keep the same instructor for the whole week. And bravo for bringing in more male instructors- it is always good to have male role models/teachers for my son. Love the new Woodbridge facility!"

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

Carolyn Little, Montclair, VA

"Luke had a blast and learned so much... SwimKids is one of our favorite places!"

Kelly Delaune

"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

"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

"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

"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

"Alexia was on Stealth and Noah took lessons. Their swimming has improved dramatically. Last night Alexia placed 2nd overall in her age group in freestyle and swam with 26 girls. Noah is placing 2nd and 3rd overall in his backstroke. Alexia is now on to fly and IM and placing in her races.

We are thrilled, feel like we have gotten more than our money's worth, and will be back next year! Thank you for helping my children become incredible, confident swimmers!"

Kathleen Slate

"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

"As a former American Red Cross Water Safety Instructor I have been very impressed with the SwimKids program. The teachers are really fantastic and engaging. The water is warm! It's great."

"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. "
