Dallas Mustangs Learn-to-Swim Program

The Dallas area's most nationally renowned swim team is now offering learn-to-swim lessons! There will be three different groups determined to fit your child's needs! We will start by teaching basic swim skills and build up towards learning all four swim strokes. Lessons are 30 minutes in length with two class times per week. We have a low swimmer/instructor ratio making it ideal for your little Mustang!
