The Jim Montgomery Swim School aims to teach swim lessons to all ages
and abilities, from the youngest to the most senior.

We have the ability, unique in the North Dallas area, to provide developmental swimming lessons, a set of pathways connecting the basic abilities of the pre-adolescent swimmer with the competitive vistas of high school, college, and Masters swimming. We are conveniently located at the intersection of Preston and Beltline Rd. and are within easy driving distance from the Park Cities, North Dallas, Richardson, and Plano area.  Our Dallas facility offers two warm water teaching pools; a 29 X 50 ft. and a 30 X 75 ft. Our pool is equipped with a high-quality UV water purification system to keep the water clean and pure at all times.

The Jim Montgomery Swim School teaching method utilizes a series of basic building blocks that transfers from beginning to developmental swim lessons.

The students are constantly learning in a super charged positive environment. After each drill is mastered, there is always a “High Five” with the coach. Students are engaged and interacting with their peers and coach throughout the whole lesson.

Students are constantly challenged at their own pace to master new skills. That’s what the Olympic ideal is all about – setting higher goals and standards to achieve excellence.


We develop confidence beyond the swimming pool by providing specific, consistent, and encouraging feedback.

We provide a distinct reward program offering incentives for children to be recognized for their hard work.  In addition, a repeatable process is developed where children learn how their attitudes, actions and behaviors impact their confidence beyond the swimming pool.

We are “process” oriented rather than “outcome” oriented.

We focus on the “skills to be taught” for that level rather than the “Advancement Goals.” Confidence is built one step at a time. We prepare our coaches and instructors to react quickly in a positive confident manner. Our coaches and instructors know how to differentiate swim lessons to fit each swimmer’s needs. Our lead coaches are always there to support our instructors and students in any way possible.
