SwimKids in Fredericksburg, Virginia can be found at the Massad family YMCA. Founded in 1974 the Massad family YMCA has been a local favorite in Fredericksburg, Stafford, and the I-90 corridor so we joined with the YMCA to bring our specialty of building happy, safe, and confident swimmers to their friendly waters. It is a partnership that has been maintained for over 10 years.

What do you enjoy most about SwimKids?

My favorite thing about work at Swimkids is that after over 25 years of coaching in some form or fashion. I still wake up and love coming to work. Every time I jump in the water, I learn something new, I get to see our swimmers smile and I get to share my love of the water!

Fun Fact…

Aside from being the mother of 5 (yes, 5!) amazing young men, I can speed read. I have read over 150 books in 2023 alone.

What Parents are Saying

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.”

What Parents are Saying

“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.”
