About Us

Swim Lessons From An Olympic Champion!

Established in 2005, Jim Montgomery Swim School’s goal is to provide first-class swimming lessons and classes for youth and adults in Dallas. Through his years of Olympic training and Master’s coaching,  Jim Montgomery has developed an award-winning program for all swimming levels from beginner to competitive.

From your child’s first splash in the water to swimming the length of the pool, the Jim Montgomery Swim School (JMSS) helps students reach personal goals in a safe, confidence-building atmosphere. Achieving goals comes naturally to Coach Jim Montgomery. Winning three gold and one bronze medal from the 1976 Montreal Olympics, Coach Jim was the first man to break the 50-second barrier in the 100-meter freestyle. Coach Jim shares his knowledge and lifelong love of swimming with you and your child! He’s taught thousands of children and adults how to feel safe in the water, get fit and love to swim. Now it’s your turn!

About Us

Classes for All Levels

 Start with Baby Swim classes at 3 months and grow as a swimmer through our Kid Swim and unique Developmental Swim League programs. We even help adults learn to become self-confident around water. Our supportive instructors will guide you every splash of the way. (Read our make-up policy here.)

Baby Swim

More fun than a bath, our Baby Swim lessons put parents in the pool with infants starting at 6 months. Test the waters with FREE Baby Basics classes for children ages 3 to 5 months.

Kids Swim

Keep the kids moving above and below the water. Kids Swim classes teach basic skills and safety in a positive atmosphere filled with laughter and praise. It’s so much fun, they’ll forget they’re learning.

Dev. Swim

Boost skills, increase confidence and learn how to set and achieve goals. This is the only program in North Texas to build a bridge from learn-to-swim classes to competitive swimming.

Adult Swim

You’re never too old to overcome a fear of water and learn swimming skills – floating, breathing, basic strokes and more. Work at your own pace to gain control and build confidence in the pool.
