SwimRVA would like to say thank you to our following sponsors:



"For my kids the approach has seemed to work well with their personalities.  I also have felt that your staff have been more than accommodating when we needed to change things around.  I also feel as if SwimRVA is serious about making certain that the kids understand concepts.  And the fact that it is a continuous learning experience makes it more worthwhile."

"The thing I like best about the SwimRVA Swim School is that the kids progress when they have learned (the skills).  I like the fact that the instructors really seem to want to teach the kids."

"Small (swim lesson) classes and fun play time after the lesson.  The hours are great-afternoon day time/during the week-for homeschoolers.  Siblings (not taking SwimRVA swim lessons) can enjoy the pool at the same time using the family membership (which is way cheaper than other facilities and the monthly with no joining fees).  We are very satisfied!"

"I will say that (the best thing) is the commitment that the instructors show for the progress of the kids."

"Achievable levels of skill-building.  You work on a few things at a time and get to celebrate your achievements often enough that it provides encouragement."

"I don't really know why other programs have not worked, but I think I know why SwimRVA (Swim School) has been so successful for him.  I will never forget a couple lessons into "Station 1" - a couple of the kids tested their blowing bubble skills and got to move to the next (station)....The look on his face when he realized that he was being "left behind" was priceless.  His competitive spirit got the best of him and he passed (station) 1 very quickly.  SwimRVA is a perfect combination of group lessons with individual progress.  Once a child masters the skill, they progress to the next (station).  They don't have to wait for the group to pass.  I don't usually respond to "testimonial" requests, but Swim RVA has made a beautiful swimmer out of my son and I truly appreciate the difference you guys have made."
