  1. Please consider Jim Montgomery Swim School. Infant to teen classes as well as adult “learn to swim classes.” As students progress, they can consider pre-competitive swim teams. Low key. Positive support. Nice, clean facility.

  2. You forgot the City of Plano Swimmers (COPS) foundation program! It’s a learn to swim program that prepares children off all ages to enter their fundamentals of competitive swimming program! Both of my boys learned to swim with COPS, and it’s an unbeatable value!
