“I don’t waaaaannnnt to go to swimming!” This phrase. Followed by huffing and puffing and tears. Every. Single. Week. We continued this routine for months until we (I) couldn’t take it anymore.
Fast forward to January 2016 when a sparkly, new swim school opened around the corner from our house. I decided to fire off an email to see if they would be a fit for my little people. “Hi, I have a 4 year old son who is terrified of swimming because he fell in a pool and a 2 year old daughter who can’t swim and is a nutjob.”
Believe it or not, two weeks later we jumped into swim lessons at Jim Montgomery Swim School and never looked back. The facilities are new and incredibly clean. The staff is top notch and truly has bonded with my kiddos. Best of all, my son actually enjoys class and is finally swimming underwater. My soon-to-be 3 year old has become a fish. I have seriously loved every minute of every class.
Why are these folks so knowledgeable about swimming? Well, Jim Montgomery is a three time Olympic Gold Medalist from the 1976 Olympic games in Montreal. He moved to Dallas in 1979 and eventually started what is now the second largest Masters swim team in the USA. He had always wanted to start a swim school and over the past year has been developing a plan. Jim Montgomery Swim School opened on January 5th and the certified instructors are loving what they do!
They are very passionate about teaching a love of the water and water safety to all ages. And I’m just thrilled that my kids are now hollering “I can’t waaiiiiiiit to go to swimming!”
