Developmental Swim Lessons

Developmental Swim Program

Children will learn and refine swim technique once they have mastered the basics along with safety skills. Designed for youth ages 6 to 12, the Developmental swim program at JMSS is the only one in North Texas that bridges the gap between learn-to-swim classes and swim team training. It is ideal for students who may consider competitive swimming and even those who just enjoy the benefits of swimming.

Led by Olympic gold medalist Jim Montgomery, our coaches work with students in a supportive, nurturing environment. Children develop techniques that improve swimming speed and efficiency while addressing the mental component of setting and achieving personal goals – both in and out of the pool. The JMSS Developmental Swim classes provides a path to connect the basic abilities of preadolescent swimmers with the competitive needs of their age group or middle and high school teams.
