Baby Swim lessons put caregivers in the pool with infants starting at 6 months old. Our baby classes incorporate water safety, comfort and teach independence.
For our swimmers over the age of 18 we offer a Masters swim program. Join Coach Jim as he and our coaches train you to be efficient in the water and grow your love of the sport.
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.
