Amazing Coaches

We have been with Waterloo for the past year and have two swimmers currently. They have matured as swimmers starting as beginners to swim fit and swim team. The coaches are extremely professional with great experience as competitive swimmers them selves as well as great with kids of all age. I have and will continue to recommend friends to Waterloo swimming. Keep up the great work.

Great Experience

We started our daughter in thr late summer, and couldn’t be happier. My daughter’s teachers are wonderful. All have been very knowledgeable and professional, and we have seen her swimming skills advance tremendously. Everyone is very friendly and you can tell they care about their students. We are happy with all that she’s learning at Waterloo.

Great job!

We have been taking our granddaughters to Waterloo since March 2017. In that time we have seen a trermendous growth in our oldest granddaughter swimming ability. Thanks to Ms Katie and her caring instructors for helping her overcome her timidness about swimming in the big pool. Thanks to all the instructors for being so patient with the younger one as she grows up in her swimming abilities. Everyone staff member that we have come into contact with are so helpful and friendly. Our family appreciate all that you do.

Waterloo is amazing!!

I came from the largest swim team in Texas and moved to Waterloo in August of last year. I have improved so much in the past year it's absolutely amazing. The coaches here are so kind and patient and really push you to do your best every day. The pool is very nice and clean and I love swimming in it. Keep doing what you're doing Waterloo, because it's working! Thank you for making me the swimmer I am today and helping me so I can keep improving.

Waterloo Rocks!

I was sick of a different swim team so I tried Waterloo. I knew from first look that the coaches rock and I would love it. I am swimming with Waterloo now and I am so happy I choose this place. It is like a second home, with such close friends I would think they are family, AMAZING coaches who have helped me improve so much, and a great environment to be in! If you are looking for a swim team, CHOOSE WATERLOO! I am so happy I did, and I know you will be too!

First impressions...

You can never make a first impression again, ever.

Today I brought my son to Waterloo for a evaluation and I was blown away. Those that know me... That is hard to do.

1. The people were genuinely kind and helpful

2. The swim coaches were gracious, encouraging and thoughtful.

3 The facility was immaculate and tidy and of course wet!

Again, Wow and bravo Waterloo, you've got me!

Perfect place for young swimmers!

My daughter was a timid swimmer but loved the water. We signed her up for a few private lessons last summer at age 6. Within 3 lessons, she was swimming with her head underwater and changed out her swim mask for goggles! Quite impressive!! The instructor was amazingly patient and gave her the confidence to become an good swimmer in just a few weeks. We highly recommend Waterloo!

Great Support

This is our second year at Waterloo Swim School. My children are 4 and 6 this summer. They have taken the Blitz classes both summers and I'm amazed at how quickly they've picked up new skills.
The instructors take the time to make the kids comfortable before they start any of the skill work. I think it makes all the difference.
Kyle was their instructor for the majority of last summer and my son thought Kyle was the greatest guy ever. He spent extra time with him and I appreciated that immensely - my son had been terrified of the pool and by the end of the summer he was confident in his abilities. Both kids were thrilled to see Kyle and give him a hug at the beginning of this summer. This year we've been with Jordan and Kristin and I'm again impressed with how they encourage the kids to work a little harder and try to learn new skills.
Whenever I've emailed with questions, Gwyn responds promptly so the customer service element is just one more bonus to an excellent program.
I heartily recommend Waterloo Swim School to all of our friends. Thanks for the fantastic program and for the wonderful instructors!

Amazing Coaches

My kids both swim year round. I just moved my daughter to Waterloo to swim in the Gold group. My daughter takes a while to warm up to coaches but after two practices she LOVED Coach Daniel. Both my kids say Coach Daniel is cool! He is super responsive to my emails and great with the kids. My son swims in the senior group, and Coach Mike is simply one of the best coaches we have had the privilege to swim for in a year round swimming program. We are super excited about swimming for Waterloo and can't wait to see what the future holds for our swimmers and for the Waterloo swim program.

Mike,

First, I’d like to thank you for all you encouragement. You truly gave me the confidence I needed to signup for a triathlon. A few weeks ago along with my oldest sons, Anthony and Nicholas, we signed up for a pool triathlon and completed it with ease and all had a great time.

Ella (7) has been with Waterloo since last August and started in the intermediate program when she mastered skills with coach Amber she was able to move up to Bronze 1. Through the amazing coaches at Waterloo we have seen Ella drop her times at consecutive meets and surpass her goals! The coaching staff teaches her how to integrate nutrition as well which is so beneficial to young athletes and their longevity in a sport. Our youngest daughter Erin (4) also started swimming with Waterloo and we are encouraged with her progress. The patience of the coaches for the young swimmers is amazing to watch. We have been so happy since becoming apart of the Waterloo Family! Harrison Family

We wanted Gauri to learn swimming as a life skill and were looking for a good swim school as soon as we moved to Austin back in 2015. While shopping for one, we soon came to know about the new swim school about to open around the corner. We liked the idea but at the same time were skeptical. Anyway, our minds were blown away as we took our first visit…with the huge facility, warm-welcoming environment and happy coaches. We decided instantly “Waterloo Swimming” is the place for us. Gauri was tested and put in orange level. She came home one day and said she wants to go twice a week instead of one. She loves swimming and I can see the passion in her growing deeply for swimming. Waterloo has provided her the right environment for growth by evaluating her every month and showing, discussing her progress with us. Her dream was to make it to swim team at Waterloo, which for us seemed so far away. But that day arrived on Jan 30th 2019 when she was evaluated by Ms. Katie and was given the intermediate graduate wristband. I could see her glorying away to joy holding that band in her hand….that was the moment we all were waiting for. I am proud of her for all her hard-work but most of all, I am VERY THANKFUL to Waterloo for giving her the right environment and letting her dreams come true. Thekkittil Family

Waterloo Swimming is amazing! The awesome staff, instructors, facility- impressed overall! My 9 year old has grown so much as a swimmer!

The previous school we were at prior to Waterloo, there were so many months of no progression or learning new skills at all. Once she was starting to not love swimming anymore, we decided it was time to search other swim schools in the area. I called swim schools around our home and a swim team- Fast Frogs recommended Waterloo. We were excited immediately once we walked in for the evaluation. The staff made us feel so welcome and you could see they were excited to have us! Mya started progressing tremendously within the first month and her love for swimming returned immediately! Each and every staff member we’ve met are so genuine and love what they do! The instructors also shed happy tears when their students graduate to the next level! It’s so heartwarming to see how much they care about all their students! Thank you, Waterloo for being amazing! Highly recommend to all! Jenn and Mya Rojas

If coaching is anything like sales then I am sure you generally hear parents complaining about this or that rather than taking the time to call out the good. Well with that theme in mind I wanted to take a moment and call out all the good we are seeing with our swimmers and wanted to take a moment to thank the coaches for all they do to make it possible.

Addie and Alex recently attended the Tuesday night at the races as well as the spooky meet. I knew Addie and Alex were getting better (I could see it in their technique) but it wasn’t till these two meets that I realized how much they truly had improved.

As a parent who was a swimmer I often thought that the clubs motto was rather simple (attendance + effort = success) from personally understating how much work it takes to excel. But for children this age I have to agree with you 100%. It really is that simple at this age and is something my girls can grab on to and understand.

There is one other element to success that I think is silently assumed in your moto though; great coaches that care and work hard for the kids. I want to call out what an amazing job I think Coach Annie does with the kids. She puts technique first (I don’t think I have noticed a single 50 go by where she isn’t helping correct someone’s stroke) and has an incredible energy in each and every practice.

Thank you! K. Fisher
