Our lessons start at 6 months old and our students will grow as swimmers through our Kids Swim and Developmental Swim programs. We even have adult classes that help our students become more confident in and around water and develop stroke technique. Our supportive instructors will guide you every splash of the way. (Read our make-up policy here.)
Our Baby Swim lessons put parents in the pool with infants starting at 6 months old. Our group baby classes incorporate water safety, comfort and teaches independence in the water.
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.
Learn all four strokes, 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.
Do you have a competitive swimmer looking to enhance their skills or challenge themselves as a swimmer? Then check out our in-house Marlins program, a fun and stress free introduction to swim team.
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 and around the pool.
About Jim Montgomery Swim School
Established in 2015 by father daughter duo Jim and Ellis, 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, and her years as a swim instructor and an educator who specialized in early childhood development, Jim and Ellis have developed an award-winning program for all swimming levels from beginner to competitive.
In Jim’s post-Olympic career, he has taught adult swim for fitness, coached high school varsity teams, led people in overcoming their fear of water, and taught anywhere from kids to pre-teens. Ellis has been teaching swim lessons for half of her life and focused her degree on Early Childhood Development before pursuing a teaching career. Ellis developed our Baby Swim and Kids Learn to Swim program here at JMSS.
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 who won three gold and one bronze medal in the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Jim was the first man to break the 50-second barrier in the 100-meter freestyle. He shares his knowledge and lifelong love of swimming with you and your child! He’s taught thousands of children and adults how to feel safer in and around the water, get fit and love to swim.
