    “My little brother has learned so much from the instructors and his ability to swim is amazing he recently moved to the swim force and I couldn’t be more proud. He says his favorite thing about the place is how he is always learning something new and how friendly everyone is. Wish there was a place like this when I was growing up. Thank you to everyone who makes this happen for the little ones!”

    “My family has been a member of the Yorktown goldfish swim school since shortly after it’s initial opening. Our two sons Anthony and Alexander attend weekly classes. We have had outstanding experiences with this school. First, the facility is world-class. We feel privileged to have such an outstanding swim school in our town. The facility is always clean and the features within the school are amazing. It’s good to know that ownership is investing in the business and continue to maintain a great facility. We have had great experiences with all staff members. The front desk is always available to help and all swim instructors are professional. The staff members all seem passionate about completing their jobs and they all have positive work ethics. The positive work culture is displayed through all the communication we have with each of the staff members. Also, it goes a long way to hear “Hello” and “Goodbye” when walking in and out past the front desk. I recently took notice of this over the last few visits. As a parent, who is constantly reminding his 6 and 4-year-old sons to “Be polite,“ I truly appreciate hearing this when visiting the facility. It’s a simple gesture that goes a long way! Overall we have had great experiences with the Yorktown swim school. Our sons truly love attending their classes and have become extremely comfortable in the water. This is a result of an excellent facility, dedicated staff, and overall great leadership.”

    “Both my sons Eamon and Ronan absolutely love going swimming at Goldfish. We love how the swim teachers get to know the kids and really get them to work hard and enjoy the class. Also recently the mangers went out of their way to accommodate my kid's schedule and came up with a class that will work for them. We love Goldfish.”

    “Late last year, I happened to see the Goldfish sign on my way to work. My children were on hiatus from the Town of Cortlandt’s swimming program and I needed a place for them to continue learning how to swim during the winter months. I researched the program online and was absolutely thrilled to the 1:4 teaching ratio. We have been in attendance for a year. Each weekend, my husband and I watch and cheer from the sidelines as we see the awesome progression of not being able to float to doing backstrokes. The program has created strength in our children that reaches beyond the pool as they strive to advance in other aspects of their young lives. We look forward to their continued swimming abilities.”

    “My son started your classes less than three months ago afraid of putting his head under the water and very apprehensive of being in the water without an adult holding him. In the 12 short weeks, he has been at your school, I have seen his confidence soar. He goes under the water for fun now and actually relaxes enough to practice floating. The small class sizes are great because he gets a lot of attention, which he needed. Thank you!”

    “First I would like to thank you so much for opening this great swimming facility in our community. We were missing this great, warm environment not only for our children but for our families. We joined Goldfish at its first-month opening and I wasn’t sure how it was going to be, considering it was a cold month of December. Luckily I was very surprised in a positive way. My daughter Melissa has learned how to swim in her first few months of taking swimming lessons for the first time, which is a very important survival skill and a wonderful sport. Not only this skill has made a difference in our daughter’s life. We have been taking advantage of the family swim, which has brought a lot of family quality time, bonding and fun all year long. Goldfish is a warm environment, with very friendly and flexible staff. I appreciate all the family events you provide for our community and it has brought a lot of families together. Thank you for bringing connection, life skills and fun to Yorktown. We love Goldfish!”

    “I enrolled my granddaughter at Goldfish swim school because she was incredibly afraid of going into any pool no matter how deep and swimming is an essential skill. She started her first day scared but the instructor was able to gain her trust immediately. My granddaughter was so happy she asked if she could go back. We just completed our first month and she has made remarkable progress. She's not afraid anymore, looks forward to her sessions, and is picking up the skills well. She loves the instructors, she says they make it fun and do games. I love that the instructor is patient and attentive. The lifeguard is super vigilant when instructors are with a student in the water. The facility is cleaned repeatedly after each session, social distance and covid19 precautions followed, and I like that the seating area is behind the glass so I can watch but not distract. The staff is warm and inviting and I have to say they are very accommodating to my needs in particular. I'm an NYC Paramedic and my schedule rotates with 12 hr shift. The Goldfish staff worked with the schedule to make it possible for us to attend her sessions. I think that was above and beyond service. I highly recommend this swim school.”

    “My daughters started swim lessons in January. Both were very nervous in the water. The staff at Goldfish Swim School were patient and gentle with them. Through the program, my daughters began going under the water and started the techniques of swimming independently. I would highly recommend placing your children into this program. Even with the pandemic, the staff has gone above and beyond to keep a clean environment and an engaging swim program.”

    “Within one month of classes at Goldfish YH, my daughter went from being terribly afraid of putting her face in the water to swimming fully independently underwater the entire width of the pool. Thank you to all the instructors for giving her the confidence she needed. She is now motivated to learn and making progress each and every time she steps into Goldfish!”

    “My son has been attending swim lessons for a month now. He is 2 years old and has always been nervous around the pool, or anything larger than the bathtub. The facility is kept extremely clean and has excellent protocols put in place for social distancing and to avoid overcrowding. Everyone has been very friendly. At our first lesson, I loved that the temperature of the pool was very inviting for my son, and Annabelle was extremely kind and patient with us during our first lesson and every lesson since. She always has a smile on her face, is always willing to modify her instruction when my son gets distracted. She remains positive and encouraging as he continues to practice going underwater. My son is always excited to go to his lessons each week, and I have already noticed a positive change in his attitude towards going swimming in the pool now, and how he is able to kick his feet to swim in my arms. We love it at Goldfish Swim School!”

    Fantastic with my Autistic Son!

    “I take my 8 year old Autistic Son to the Goldfish Swim School and they have been wonderful beyond what I could have ever imagined with him! I have been looking for years (not an exaggeration) to find somewhere for him to take swim lessons. They are so patient with him, and when he is having a bad day they just walk him through it and make it work. I have never seen them annoyed or upset with him and it is just wonderful to watch. As most parents with special needs children you understand how special it is to find a place that accepts your child for how they are. Which I think is perfect of course :) So thank you to everyone at Goldfish for all that you do!”

    Dedication and Trust

    “Today marked the 4th lesson my little Goldfish has had at the Goldfish Swim School. Overall, I went in scared after hearing other testimonials from friends on how they threw kids into pools and let them swim it out and I am so glad that I took the time to come here! The staff at Goldfish are exceptional! From check-in to the actual swim instructors this team is a well oiled machine! The water is comfortable and the class sizes are small. Within a few lessons, my little one went from complete fear of being in the water to floating, and and jumping in all by himself! Instructors know your little one by name, making them feel so special. My family and our son will be forever grateful for receiving such high-quality lessons from Goldfish. We recommend Goldfish to all our friends and family!”

    Great Experience!

    “I took my 7 year old son there for swim lessons and I was very impressed with the way his instructor took the time to help get use to the water. At first my son was hesitant but after the first 15 minutes of the assistance of his instructor, he was much calmer and became more relaxed to the water. My son’s fear of water is slowly going away. Thank you so much!”

    THANKS

    “My daughter Martina is enrolled in regular swim lessons and the jump star clinic from June 18th to June 22nd. I never could have believed that 30 minutes a day in 5 days swim lessons could produce the results that I have witnessed with my daughter. Martina started with Junior 2 and moved up to Gliders 3 in just one week!! It seems super crazy but it is truly amazing! We are so glad about that !!! Your swim program and instructors work miracles. I couldn't believe how quickly and easily how quickly the instructors were able to teach Martina. When our schedule gets hectic and needs to reschedule Martina's lessons and jump-start clinic for a couple of times, they have been a huge help, very supportive, and thoughtful. Many THANKS! I definitely would recommend Goldfish swimming to everyone I know!”

    Worth Every Penny

    “My daughter has been a student at Goldfish since she has was 8 months old. Her teachers have been outstanding. They always great us with a smile, and are very outgoing. We recently went on a family vacation to Great Wolf Lodge in Sandusky, Ohio where we saw my daughter use all of the things she has learned at Goldfish over the years and made every penny spent on lessons well worth it. Keep up the great work!”

    “Earlier this summer when Olympic skier Bode Miller's daughter drowned, it sparked an overwhelming concern. It pushed me to do more research on swim lessons and ask more questions around water safety. I was shocked to learn that drowning is the leading cause of death for children aged 1 - 4 years. Goldfish was recommended to our family by a friend and after a tour of the facility led by the general manager - it was a no-brainer for us to enroll our daughter. At 10 months old, our daughter Brielle took the plunge in the Mini 1 class! About one month in - we couldn't be happier with our decision. The level of instruction, inviting facility and friendly staff are unmatched.”

    Super Happy!

    “I have all three of my children in swim school at Goldfish and I could not be more pleased with the amazing facility, professional manner of the entire staff and the progress I have seen my kids make in their swimming. My youngest, who is three, was terrified of the deep end and going to the pool was a nightmare for me making sure the older two had fun but sitting in one foot of water every pool trip. Now, she loves swimming and is so confident and comfortable in the water. We are super happy with Goldfish. Thank you!”

    Best Decision for my Apprehensive Fishies

    “Enrolling my 2 daughters into Goldfish may be one of the best decisions I've made for them thus-far. I've tried various swimming programs and to no avail, they simply didn't work. Goldfish has really set the standard for allowing kids to be comfortable in the water while learning the basics of swimming. I now have 2 little fishies (2yo & 8yo) that are excited and demanding that we go to swimming class more than they are scheduled. I am so grateful for Goldfish and can't wait to watch my girls finally embrace their time in the water!!!”

    Amazing place to have your kids learn to swim!!!

    “My son was taking lessons at a different school and I was so tired of always getting different instructors and him never advancing, and to say the front desk staff was awful to deal with is an understatement, at Goldfish swim school the staff could not be any more friendly or more welcoming!!! From the phone call to setting up his class, to the instructors EVERYONE was absolutely awesome!!! We walked out with my son asking when he can come back. This school is a God sent and so happy we found it. I can not say enough good things about this school and all the staff members. ”

    This place is amazing - the ONLY place I will bring my son to learn how to swim

    “I cannot say enough about this facility! Everything from the building to the amenities to the staff and the teachers. We have never had a bad experience here and everyone is always so helpful and cheerful. The few times my son did not have a good lesson experience, was because he was leary of a new teacher and not because the staff or teachers did anything. Yet, the teachers worked with him during the lesson and the deck advisor kept checking in on him throughout the lesson. The owner even came over to us following the lesson and offered a free make-up lesson! I was amazed by how well they handled that situation as well as those time that my toddler was acting out a few weeks in a row. Their level of patience exceeds my own at times. They know and remember our family and little personal traits about my son; I am so glad I found them. This is the third place I've brought my son since he was an infant and I will never leave! This place is worth every penny. I hope my son continues on to their swim team program and we can stay connected with them far into the future.”

    This place really has it together!!

    “This was our daughter's first lesson. Right from the start Goldfish is very welcoming. They explained everything in detail and our daughter even received a Gold fish t-shirt. The I instructors were quick to see the area she needs help in the most and adjusted her lesson around it. At the end of the lesson the instructor let us now what she needed to work on as well as what she did well. The amenities here are awesome as well with a bathing suit dryer and hair dryers, a snack bar and lounge areas for the parents. The best part is the glass divider in between the pool and the viewing area. It keeps the viewing area quiet which is a nice 30 min relaxation time for busy parents. We couldnt recommend a better swim class in the area!!!!!”

    Changed his view!

    “My 5 year old was afraid of getting water on his face and was not a fan of the swimming idea when he first started. However, in less than 6 months, not only did he love putting his face in the water, but he was swimming independently! Now swimming is one of his favorite activities and he is excited for the days he goes to class. His instructor has really worked with him and she has been as proud of his accomplishments as I have been! That’s how much they care about their students.”

    Amazing first time experience!

    “I just wanted to take a minute and tell you how amazing my first experience there was. Everyone from the front desk staff, to the instructor, to the lifeguard, and even some random guy in the lobby in a Goldfish Polo was so welcoming. My Travis is only 4 months old so this was my first time and I had no idea what to expect. They walked me through everything, showed me around the facility, and placed an arm band on me so everyone knew it was my first day. I couldn't believe all the things you can do with a 4 month old in a pool and was so impressed with the creativity. The instructor was so fantastic. I was understandably uncomfortable dunking my infant under the water but she explained how that worked and I was totally on board. I couldn't believe I was able to do that with him on the first day! I am totally hooked and absolutely cannot wait for next week! Thank you all so much for such a fantastic experience! You have a wonderful program for first-timers!”

    Worth every bit!

    “I had my daughter in swim through Rochester School District and they’re just in it for the money. It was 8-10 students per class that’s ridiculous. After seeing how my daughter was struggling due to amount of student and lack of help from the instructors, I grew tired and went on the the hunt for actual swim schools. Came across Goldfish and I was immediately sold. Class group of size of 4 helped a lot with her learning and she went up a class her first day. Unlike Rochester School District the instructors were hands on and very passionate. My daughter has confidence boost and is now happy and and so am I.”

    Best swim school ever!

    “My 4 year old has autism spectrum disorder and gross motor skill delays. I first started her in Mini 1 as a baby and it's unbelievable how far she's come over the years. She's very smart but challenged socially, and her instructor was able to communicate with her on a whole new level. When she first started, she was afraid to get in the water. I think the 90-degree water temperature made it easier to learn to swim. She can also float on her back, which she used to be so scared of. The staff were also very accommodating toward her sensory issues (allowing for breaks, etc.) and she loves swim lessons. She's now in Glider 2.”
