From first putting their head underwater to preparing for swim team tryouts, Metro swim lessons can help your child reach their swimming goals.  Swimming is not only fun and great exercise, it can also be a lifesaving skill.  We want to pass along our love of swimming while teaching your child to be safe in the water.

We host swim lessons at our Forney Location

To Determine Which Level Your Swimmer Is At:

  • Your swimmer needs to be able to do EVERY item on a given level before they move to the next level.
  • So if they can do 3 out of 4 items on Level 2, they will register for level 2. If they can do 4 out of 4 items on Level 2, then they should register for Level 3.
  • Questions on which level to register for? Contact Coach Jamie at [email protected]
