Wonderful experience

After years of doing other sports our son wanted to try swimming and Waterloo was the perfect fit! Stephanie has helped us navigate the process of swim lessons to swim fit to his first swim meet this weekend. He is loving the environment and is so encouraged by all the staff. Thanks Waterloo!

Great Place

We've been going to Waterloo for a few months, after being at another swim facility for four years. Waterloo is AMAZING! The facility is great, the pool is clean, and the staff is awesome. And a special shout out to Ms. Julie who helped get my son back into the groove after being away for three weeks. For some reason he was scared to go to the pool area, so she helped us out by calmly and sweetly working with him until he was in the pool and having a great time like he usually does. Love Waterloo.

Thank you Sydney and Cosy!

My two year old son has been taking lessons at our community (Siena) through Waterloo for about a month. I have been impressed with how well the instructors (Sydney and Cosy) interact with him and the other children they teach. I love how they're flexible with the ever changing moods and wants of a two year old child as well as willingness to encourage them to push their limits, even if the child is hesitant. They are very open with communication and consistently offer feedback and suggestions, and they are open to suggestions from me as the parent to help my child succeed and progress.

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.

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!

The Sears Family- After her first summer league season our daughter Sophia asked us if there was a way to continue swimming even though summer league was over. We looked around and found Waterloo, and she joined swim team in August 2018. She loves being a part of the team, and her confidence, focus, and patience have improved greatly. Because of the excellent coaching and guidance from her coaches, she has met every goal she has set for herself and has told us that even though practice is hard work she feels ‘amazing’. The journey so far has been incredible to watch, and we definitely plan to enroll our younger son Ben in lessons at Waterloo as soon as he’s ready. We’re so happy to be a Waterloo family!

We moved from Mexico City last year and immediately started searching for a place where Julian would continue with his swimming practice as he was involved in his previous school´s swimming team. He has learned and improved a lot during this past 9 months, he loves Waterloo and looks forward every day to going there, see his teacher and meet his friends! Having this fine discipline at his early age has helped him grow up in other chores.. like school, being formal, competitive and focused. We as a family appreciate the effort and dedication the Coaches put day-in/day-out with our kid, we are happy! Thanks. Sevilla Ruiz Family

Gitali started at Waterloo almost a year back when we moved to Austin from San Diego. She has been swimming from when she was 15 months old. The staff and instructors here at Waterloo are excellent and very supportive. We get timely report of her progress and easy online access of her each class session. She has learned many advanced techniques here in a short span of time. She look forward to every Monday and Wednesday for her swim classes. Special mention to the idea of putting diet/nutrition chart of a swimmer on pin board. My daughter has pic of it in her room, which reminds her how to get energy to become a great swimmer one day.

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
